MESA, Arizona., September 20, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – In an online article, the Soba Recovery rehabilitation center disseminated new knowledge about the shelf life of alcohol in the body and the concept of alcohol metabolism. This reviews the factors that affect alcohol metabolism, the time it takes for alcohol to pass through your system, and the effects of the detox process. All of this information is available for free in an online article designed to help people find the resources they need to lead healthy lives.
Alcohol detoxification is a long process that can cause symptoms such as seizures, fever, hallucinations, body tremors, and nausea or vomiting. This can be a dangerous time when the body’s sensitivity to alcohol is increased and a relapse can easily lead to an overdose. As many may know, the liver produces alcohol dehydrogenase, which breaks down alcohol into energy and is the primary organ for processing alcohol. However, sex also plays a role, as women have fewer enzymes that break down alcohol, resulting in a faster rate of poisoning. Plus, age directly influences body composition and lean body mass, which means that as you get older and your body mass decreases, you become more sensitive to alcohol.
The time it takes for the body to process alcohol can vary depending on a number of factors, such as what is drunk, the person’s physical stature, and how often they drink. That being said, current guidelines state that alcohol can be detected in the bloodstream for up to 6 hours, extending up to 12 to 24 hours in saliva or urine, and in the case of a hair follicle test, alcohol can be detected up to 90 days after drinking. When detoxifying, it may take a full week for the body to be completely cleansed of alcohol.
As part of the detoxification process, Soba Recovery recommends seeking help, as this process can be long and come with many risks and dangers. It is also advisable to seek specialist care, as trained clinicians will have a better understanding of how your body responds to the substance and its withdrawal, allowing them to better help you live a clean life.
