Certainly we don’t feel the effects of alcohol forever, but should you worry about driving the next morning after drinking the night before? An expert explains just how long it takes your body to rid itself of alcohol.
Most people know common symptoms of consuming alcohol too much, the most obvious being harm to your liver.
The liver filters blood from the digestive tract to the rest of your body and in the process of breaking down the alcohol you consume, your liver encounters toxins.
Heavy drinking can lead to the reduction of blood flow as your liver will have to break the alcohol down. This can cause liver cells to die, halting liver function that plays a vital role in much more than detoxification.
