The Real Effects of Consuming Alcohol

The consumption of alcohol will:

  • Cause your blood vessels to expand. This can lead to headaches and dizziness.
  • Affect your quality of sleep. Ever wonder why you tend to wake up in the early hours of the morning after a night out drinking? Alcohol may help you to doze off, but after the your body processes the alcohol, you may experience a rebound effect. The rebound effect will kick you out of a deep sleep into a lighter phase of sleep.
  • Cause your blood sugar levels to fall. If your blood sugar level gets too low, this may lead to fatigue, shakiness, mood changes and in extreme cases seizures.
  • Cause iritation to your stomach lining by increasing the production of stomach acid. This is why you feel nauseous when you have consumed too much.
