what harm does alcohol bring to people?

1. Alcohol is not conducive to the repair of injury after exercise. We know that exercise can cause body injury (large or small). Take running as an example, every time our sole hits the ground, the vibration force will cause slight injury to the foot muscle, knee joint and ankle joint. After exercise, our body will quickly repair these injuries and build a stronger body to adapt to exercise. However, scientific research has found that alcohol intake can inhibit the immune system, affect blood flow, and protein synthesis in the body, which is not conducive to the body to repair these sports injuries after exercise. Especially for athletes, alcohol intake after exercise is not recommended to exceed 0.5g/kg body weight. What is the concept of

0.5g alcohol / kg body weight? Take an ordinary adult with a weight of 60kg as an example, if he drinks more than 60×0.5 = 30g after exercise, it will affect the repair of injury after exercise. A can of beer is 335ml, the alcohol content is about 355×5% (degree of alcohol) x0.8 (density of alcohol) = 14.2g, a bottle of beer is 640ml, the alcohol content is about 640×5% (degree of alcohol) x0.8 (density of alcohol) = 25.6g, two cans of beer will soon exceed the standard.

2, alcohol will make you urinate faster

, that is to say, you will soon want to urinate after drinking beer, which is not conducive to physical recovery.

3, the effect of alcohol on muscle

, alcohol can also affect muscle storage and muscle glycogen function. It’s not good for the body to regulate blood sugar. After drinking (when the blood contains alcohol beyond the normal state) to exercise, will make the content hormone imbalance, catabolism acceleration, such as cortisol hormone increase, thus accelerating muscle decomposition. At the same time, the hormones responsible for muscle synthesis, such as testosterone, decrease and muscle synthesis slows down.

4, alcoholic liver injury

, not to mention alcoholic liver, fatty liver, liver cirrhosis, this well-known harm. But from the perspective of exercise, alcohol can damage the function of the liver to store glycogen, and we know that glycogen is an important energy source during exercise.
