Proven Scientific Facts:
Alcohol increases the time for recovery of androgenic training hormones (Up to 96 hours)
Alcohols diuretic effect diminishes water soluble vitamins required for hormone catalytic/conversion actions
Human Growth Hormone release is reduced up to 70% during the sleeping hours when release is at peak levels
Alcohol increases the release of cortisol (the stress hormone). Cortisol negates training effect
Alcohol decreases the protein synthesis for muscle fiber repair
