Is it possible to combine caffeine and alcohol

PMS in men: how a cup of aromatic coffee manifests itself cheers up, invigorates, and raises attention. A tasty drink, if not abused, does not harm the body. Alcohol, on the contrary, allows you to relax. What happens when these drinks are combined? Can I use caffeine before, during, and after drinking alcohol? What are the consequences of such a combination?

The combination of coffee and alcohol: harm or benefit
People say that coffee helps to avoid intoxication, and if necessary, can quickly sober up. Scientists have completely refuted such a myth. In addition, they revealed tremendous damage to the body, with a combination of coffee and alcohol.

Coffee before alcohol

If you drink a cup of coffee about 30 minutes before the feast, then the drink will be quite out of place. It will significantly reduce the harm of ethanol to the body. Caffeine, drunk before taking alcohol, will start the production of special components in the liver that quickly and actively break down alcohol.

A cup of coffee with milk is good for 30 minutes.
It is especially useful before a coffee feast with the addition of cream. Milk fats provide enveloping the walls of the digestive tract. Due to this, the flow of ethanol into the blood through the walls of the stomach and intestines will be significantly reduced.

Simultaneous intake of two drinks

The combination of aromatic coffee with cognac is considered a classic combination. However, it carries a serious health risk. After all, these drinks affect the body in completely different ways.

It’s not just about brewed or instant coffee. No less dangerous for the body is the combination of caffeine in tablets with alcohol. In addition, some soda contains a significant amount of caffeine (for example, Coca-Cola).
Coffee helps:

excitation of the body;
increase in pressure;
narrowing of blood vessels.
And alcohol provides:

calming the nervous system;
relaxation;
pressure reduction;
vasodilation.
Coffee with skate incompatible
An organism experiencing two completely opposite effects at the same time is faced with excessive loads. This negatively affects the state of the central nervous system, blood vessels, and heart.

Coffee after alcohol

Can an invigorating drink help sober up? Unfortunately, this is another common myth that often leads to dire consequences. Drinking a drink gives an illusory sensation of sobriety, leading to incorrect decisions (for example, to drive).

What are the health effects of this combination of alcohol and caffeine? Doctors give a list of complications that may arise from the use of two completely opposite drinks. Among them:

sudden increased heart rate;
the development of arrhythmia or tachycardia;
the destruction of the vascular walls;
development of hypertension, hypotension;
increased acid production in the digestive tract (this can lead to the development of gastritis, ulcers);
the appearance of a predisposition to atherosclerosis;
increased heart function;
excessive agitation of the nervous system;
development of anxiety, nervousness, insomnia;
the appearance of headaches.
People who often practice dangerous tandem are usually at risk for developing heart attacks and strokes.
Explosive Combination
Smokers are very fond of combining alcohol and coffee with smoking a cigarette. And not one of them even wants to think that such a tradition is very harmful to health. What happens in the body if nicotine is added to alcohol and caffeine?

The combination of cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine can cause irreparable harm to health.
Heart load

Nicotine causes increased heart rate. This complicates the work of the myocardium even more. Arrhythmia worsens. Blood vessels narrowed by the action of coffee begin to expand under the flow of blood. This may cause the weakened wall to rupture.

Gastrointestinal damage

In response to increased secretion, the body produces special substances (bicarbonates) that reduce the damage to acid in the digestive system. Under the influence of nicotine, the synthesis of bicarbonates is significantly reduced. The process of developing ulcerative lesions, biliary dyskinesia, esophagitis, ileitis starts.

Nervous system depletion

Constant pressure surges, excessive load on the heart, blood vessels lead to a deterioration of the brain and nervous system. Over time, severe headaches appear, irritability develops, periods of severe depression can occur. Some people experience sudden fainting.
