Expert dispels popular myths about alcohol

Rob Hobson elaborated on how drinking habits, coffee and pain relievers affect hangovers.

British nutritionist Rob Hobson has dispelled popular myths about alcohol in society. Expert tips on drinking alcohol published edition Essex Magazine.

For example, many people believe that mixing alcoholic beverages intoxicates faster and leads to a stronger hangover the next day. This is not the case, according to Hobson.

“The body is not able to distinguish a glass of wine from a mug of beer. If you mix drinks, you probably just drink more than usual, hence such a terrible hangover,” – said the nutritionist.

The order in which the various types of alcohol are consumed are also irrelevant.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that neither the type nor the order of alcohol consumption significantly affects the intensity of the main hangover symptoms, such as thirst, fatigue, headache, dizziness, nausea, and abdominal pain.

According to Rob, pain relievers taken at night after drinking alcohol will not save you from a morning hangover.

“Although pain relievers can help ease the headaches and muscle pain associated with a hangover, their effects wear off in about four hours. So there is no point in drinking them before bed,” said the expert.

In addition, Hobson debunked the myth that strong coffee helps to sober up. The drink does stimulate the nervous system and may help relieve fatigue, but it does not increase the rate at which alcohol is cleared from the body.

Earlier it was reported that in Scotland due to the coronavirus pandemic, the death rate from alcohol rose to a record.
