Alcohol and its effects!!!

Hi there

Can someone tell the direct effects alcohol has on your body. I know it strips the body of its minerals and makes you become dehydrated...is there anymore?

Any information on what actually happens and if/how it effects muscle growth would be great.

Thanks

    excess alcohol can increase estrogen (the female Hormone) and decrease testosterone it also promotes fat storage and can hinder muscle gains...

    small amounts of wine (<4 units) is beneficial to you i believe, something to do with cholesterol

    alcohol is calorie dense, gets you hungover the next day, affect hydration and messes with your testosteron and oestrogen levels
