What kind of a celebration without champagne? It’s a real classic of the genre, a drink that costs almost anything on any table at any important event. Available and intoxicating fast enough, this drink began to be actually associated with a festive mood. Foam, cork in the ceiling – and cheerful guests enjoying the sparkling drink. But alcohol is the only thing – it is alcohol, so I would like to know for sure when it finally wets out of the body. It can be curious for people who want to drive, it can be curious for breastfeeding mothers (although the latter, if they behave normally, should refrain from drinking such drinks at all) and so on. But let’s take it in order.
Principle of operation
The first thing to remember is that champagne is alcohol. And its principle of action and time of airing will be exactly the same as any alcoholic beverage of similar fortress. Therefore, it is worth considering what happens when a certain amount of alcohol enters the body. What happens is that ethanol gets into the gastrointestinal tract. After that, it is absorbed into the blood. Then it is distributed throughout the body. Then it gradually oxidizes, and then it wears off.
Now give me more details. The first stage of alcohol presence in the body ends when ethanol reaches its maximum concentration in the blood. It all depends on the person, his characteristics and the amount of alcohol he drinks.
When ethyl alcohol is almost completely absorbed, it immediately begins to slowly withdraw from the body. Some of it is eliminated in its constant form with saliva and urine in about ten hours. The rest is oxidized to water and carbon dioxide, so gradually, step by step, the alcohol is weathered. After how long, the question is more complicated.
Champagne is weathered after less time than, say, vodka, because the proportional alcohol content is greater. Also that through how much all is weathered, very much depends on how much has been drunk. Obviously, a glass of alcohol will come out of the body faster than a bottle and so on. It also depends on how much you ate. For example, if you ate fatty food, then the alcohol will come out a little slower, because the suction will be slowed down by the “fatty” stomach walls and so on. It’s through the walls of the stomach that the alcohol enters the blood.
And yet, in how long?
As mentioned above, it’s impossible to give the exact figures after how much weathered everything is. But let’s try to give at least an estimate. For example, a glass of champagne in an average person wears out for about an hour and a half. If you drink a third of the bottle, you’ll spend twice as much time. If the person is large enough and weighs a lot, then the time, after how much everything is weathered, you can safely reduce approximately one and a half times, because the more weight, the less ethanol concentration will be in the human body.
All these figures are only indicative, so always try to be a little bit safe. Do not drive after taking champagne, even if you only had a glass and it has been a few hours. It’s better to wait a little longer to be sure. Well, it’s better to gradually limit your alcohol consumption. It’s not such an important part of the holiday, no matter how insistent the public proves you wrong. There’s a lot of harm in it, but champagne isn’t good for you.
