As the video above demonstrates, alcohol affects individuals differently, and this is particularly so where women are concerned. Just as a given amount of alcohol effects everyone differently, men and women
absorb alcohol differently. Women reach a higher BAC faster since they have
less water in their bodies and more adipose tissue, or fat.
also metabolize alcohol more slowly due to the fact that they have lower ADH enzyme levels.
Women may also experience fluctuations in their hormone levels
during their menstrual cycles, which may affect the rate of alcohol metabolism, too. This makes a woman more susceptible to elevated blood alcohol concentrations at
different points in their menstrual cycle. Women may experience their highest BAC levels during
premenstrual stages as a result of their elevated temperature at this time. During menopause, a women's true blood alcohol level may be overstated for the same reasons.
