Short-Term VS. Long-Term Effects Of Drinking

Short-term vs Long-term Effects of Drinking

Alcohol has become an important part of Western culture and around the world. We drink at social events, to celebrate, or even just to wind down after a long and busy day. Drinking in excess can start to cause health problems over time, though, not just when you’re feeling the hangover headache and dizziness.

The good news is IVITA Life Sciences offers a hangover prevention pill you take before you start drinking to prevent any ill effects the next morning. Though this is a quick-fix for the next morning, it’s important to know the short-term and long-term effects drinking can have on the body.

Short-Term

If you’ve ever had a drink or two, you know you can start to feel the effects of alcohol pretty quickly. How much you’ve had to drink; how quickly you’ve been drinking; your weight, sex, and body fat percentage; and whether or not you’ve eaten will play a role in how quickly you’ll start to feel intoxicated. Initially, a person will start to feel relaxed, happier, and let their guard down. As someone keeps drinking though, or the amount of alcohol they’ve consumed starts to take effect, they will start to show other symptoms like:

  • Slurred and mixed up speech
  • Clumsiness and walking unsteadily
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness and vomiting
  • A headache
  • Distortion of senses and perception
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Memory loss

If that isn’t enough, the next morning could have you feeling just as bad, if not worse, than the night before with symptoms like:

  • A headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Racing heart
  • Dry mouth and dry eyes
  • A difficult time concentrating
  • Restlessness

Many of these symptoms are caused by dehydration because alcohol flushes all the water, electrolytes, and vitamins out of your body. IVITA Life Sciences offers a way to prevent a hangover with a natural supplement you take before going out and having a few drinks. This pill helps replenish these electrolytes and vitamins so you don’t wake up the next morning feeling the terrible effects of the night before.

Long-Term

If the bottle flu and hangover aren’t enough to deter you from drinking too much, consider that alcohol has more long-term effects on the body that can start to cause serious complications. The good news is that the supplements for hangover prevention that IVITA Life Sciences offers also help prevent the long-term oxidative damage that alcohol has on the body. Long-term oxidative damage to the body includes:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Diabetes
  • Shrinking of the frontal lobes of your brain
  • Malnutrition
  • Alcohol dependency
  • High blood pressure
  • Risk of stroke, heart attack, heart disease, and heart failure
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Premature delivery, miscarriage, or stillbirth if drinking while pregnant
  • Higher risk of bone fracture
  • Muscles that are weak, cramped, and atrophied
  • Weakened immune system

The hangover prevention pill that IVITA Life Sciences offers helps prevent the short-term and long-term effects of drinking alcohol by flooding the body with vitamins and supplements it needs to keep functioning normally while alcohol is depleting the body of these nutrients — though it is still healthy to drink only in moderation.
