However, if you drink too much alcohol, the body will not be able to release enough NAD enzyme to perform this task, causing alcohol to accumulate and harm the body, directly affecting liver function. If alcohol abuse for a long time can lead to liver diseases such as cirrhosis , hepatitis or liver cancer ;
