How alcohol affects protein synthesis, according to Amir Hossein Manzouri, a sports physiologist and international fitness trainer
- November 1, 2021
While the negative points of alcohol consumption are evident, bodybuilders concern more about the consumption and effects of alcohol on their body’s physique. This survey has shown that drinking alcohol (about 7-8 shots) along with protein after workouts considerably perturbs the protein synthesis compared to solely consuming protein. It is not surprising. Alcohol interferes with signals associated with the process of protein synthesis and leads to a lower muscle-building rate and recovery after exercise. There are several approaches. First, drinking fewer amounts of alcohol can have no drawback, therefore, we recommend cutting down on drinking alcohol (or breaking the whole habit). Second, on days when you decide to drink, consume extra protein during the day to neutralize the effects of alcohol. You achieve no benefits for building muscles by drinking alcohol, and it is better to work smart on it if you attempt to have an excellent body shape.
