Oral administration of the water extract of Crassostera gigas (1 g/kg body weight, 30 min before) significantly suppressed the elevation of blood ethanol and acetaldehyde levels after the administration of ethanol (4 g/kg) in male Wistar rats (6 weeks of age), indicating that the Crassostera gigas extract should contain some active constituents that accelerate alcohol metabolism in the rats.
