In this digital era, the movement of information is very rapid, whether it is true or false. It has had a tremendous impact on our lives. Recently, there was a video posted on the social media platform Instagram that raised health concerns. A fitness influencer suggests that consuming alcohol before a workout can improve blood flow, which raises the alarm. It exhorted a grim sign from Dr. Syriac Abby Philips on the X platform. He described how no amount of alcohol is good for health; it can lead to a heart attack.
Dr. Syriac Abby Philips, a hepatologist on his social media platform X (formerly Twitter), warned that linking alcohol with workouts may lead to various health problems, including heart attacks. He said, "This entirely dangerous idiotic reel has almost 100k likes on Instagram. Alcohol-normalizing videos are a whole level of stupidity, but this Amul man-baby and his video won the Stupid Internet of the Year award in 2023. Please don't drink alcohol; there is no safe level of alcohol that benefits health. And most importantly, please don't mix alcohol with your pre-workout; it could give you a cardiac arrest. More notably, please don't make such stupid videos. Alcohol increases blood flow because your body is under stress to throw it out of your body. And he also says, If this guy is your trainer, please dump him.
According to a recent study by the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research, alcohol consumption can cause liver inflammation and then lead to liver scarring, a fatal disease.
According to PubMed, the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the interaction between alcohol and exercise has physiological and hematological implications. Alcohol continues to be the most often consumed drug among athletes and habitual exercisers, and alcohol-related problems appear to be more typical among these individuals. Alcohol use is linked directly to the rate of damage maintained in sports events and arises to elicit harmful effects on performance capacity during exercise. These studies also imply that the consumption of alcohol decreases the use of glucose and amino acids by skeletal muscles, negatively impacting the energy supply and degrading the metabolic process during exercise. Alcohol use following exercise is linked with adverse changes in the main factors of blood viscosity. It is also reported that alcohol use regulates the immune system and damages the host's shield.
