Does taking a bath wakes you up?


The answer is yes, taking a bath either hot or cold will wake you up, but it will not affect the alcohol metabolism on your body. Taking a hot bath has a vasodilator effect to the body which dilates the blood vessels resulting in the increase in blood circulation of the body which efficiently helps in flushing out toxins and make the body feel more relaxed. While taking a cold bath, according to some studies, stimulates the neuron cells in the brain making you feel more alert. There are also some studies that taking an alternating bath of warm and cold will help a person to feel more relaxed and alert. Take note that taking a bath will make you sweat and it is imperative to always hydrate yourself with enough fluids this is to prevent dehydration. In regards to the alcohol metabolism in the body, the alcohol metabolism in the liver has a fixed rate of 0.015 g/100mL in one hour, which stays the same either a person takes a bath or not or whether the person is awake or asleep. To sum it up, taking a bath will wake you up and provide you a false sense of alertness and it actually has no effect on the level of your drunkenness.
