Does Andehyde cause headaches after drinking alcohol?


Almost every brother has repeatedly met this situation: a happy party, drink a lot and go to sleep. After I woke up, we found headache, fatigue, dry mouth, alcoholic guts … the feeling of frustration and discomfort also lasted the next day, English called this situation hangover. Many people think that, because of the poor quality of alcohol, it does not eliminate andehyde (an-an-inhaler) to cause this phenomenon, and if the alcoholic beer is cooked, it is easier to remove and consume it and will not cause headache. tired … However, this thought is only a very small part.

First, when alcohol (C2H5OH) enters the body, it causes the pituitary to relieve a hormone called vasopressin, which is effective. diuretic. Without this hormone, the kidneys will reduce water reabsorption into the blood, so more urine will be produced. On average, just drink about 250ml of alcoholic beverages, we will urinate from 800-1000ml, more than the amount of water put into the body. High urination causes dehydration and loss of electrolytes such as salt, potassium, magnesium …

Because the body is dehydrated, we have a feeling of dry mouth and thirst, dehydration also leads to headaches. Loss of electrolytes also makes us tired, nausea, headache …





Dehydration and electrolytes cause headaches, fatigue, nausea …

In alcoholic beverages in addition to Ethanol (C2H5OH) and water, there are many other substances in the composition, which are often produced during fermentation, collectively known as congener. Congener creates a characteristic aroma and flavor for each type of beer. But congener can also be bad impurities such as methanol (CH3OH) and junk liquor (fusel alcohol) (eg Isopropyl alcohol C3H7OH …); acetone (religious); acetaldehyde; ester (ester); aldehydes … The congener itself is a more serious condition, not just aldehyde, which causes this condition. So if we drink white wine (vodka) (due to the few congener) we will have a feeling of alcohol melting faster, easier to wake up. If you drink a lot of congener drinks (like beer, wine …) if you drink a lot, then you will feel very tired.

Congener creates aroma and flavor for alcohol, but also makes the body more tired

During the process of alcohol metabolism (C2H5OH), there is an intermediate product that is produced
Acetaldehyde (CH3CHO), this is a type of andehyde, a poison to the body. Acetaldehyde is in itself if not in good distilled wine. Acetaldehyde is converted by the liver into other substances that are less toxic to the body. However, Acetaldehyde often causes long-term effects such as cancer, but does not cause acute poisoning.

One more reason that makes the body tired after drinking alcohol is because we don't sleep deeply. Alcohol (C2H5OH) inhibits glutamine, a natural stimulant of the body. After stopping drinking, the body increases the production of glutamine, which stimulates the brain to make us sleep so deeply that when we wake up, we feel very tired, restless, uncomfortable …

In addition, alcohol also irritates the stomach and gastrointestinal tract making us indigestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea … and will feel more tired.

The two most toxic substances in alcohol are probably methanol (CH3OH) and another type of andehyde, formaldehyde (formaldehyde, hormone, HCHO). These two substances will be converted into formic acid (HCOOH), which will cause acute poisoning and death. Methanol poisoning is quite common because alcohol is not guaranteed. However, because formaldehyde has a very low boiling point (−19 ° C), the ratio in alcohol is very low, often without affecting health.

Thus, the state of headache, fatigue, dry mouth and thirst (hangover) … after drinking alcohol is caused by many factors, not by Andehyde alone. Andehyde only occupies a very small position in this situation. The best way to avoid this situation is to not drink alcohol!
