Why do you get a headache after drinking red wine?
By SOPHIA F. GOTTFRIED
December 3, 2015
Love red wine but, alas, it doesn’t love you back? After drinking a glass, instead of feeling mellow, you feel a headache. Why? The answer, it turns out, is as complex as wine itself.
“There’s a whole debate about the [cause] of it,” said Dr. Damon Fellman of the Hackensack Neurology Group and associate director of neurology at Hackensack University Medical Center. The phenomenon is officially known as red wine headaches (RWH).
Sulfites, the sulfuric compounds that are both naturally produced during the fermentation process as well as often added to preserve wine, have long been accused as the perpetrator of RWH. However, white wines contain more sulfites than red wines. And beer, cheese and dried fruits can also contain much more sulfites than wine.
Artificial sweeteners increase how quickly alcohol gets into the blood stream
Alcohol readings up to 25% higher when drank with low-calorie mixer.
Sugar in full-fat versions thought to slow alcohol getting into blood stream.
Diet drinks have also been linked to putting people over drink-drive limit.
Those tested did not feel more inebriated but had higher alcohol readings.
