1. The dehydrogenase enzyme

Males can eliminate alcohol from their bodies faster than women due to having higher amounts of the dehydrogenase enzyme.


More from the web:

In general, men metabolize alcohol much better than women because they have dehydrogenase enzyme (ADH) in the stomach and very active ADH in their liver.

Therefore, they have lower BACs than females after drinking the same amount of alcohol.
