German term or phrase: Anflutungsgeschwindigkeit
In a text relating to alcohol addiction, this term appears in a list of factors affecting the development of the addiction. The full list reads:
- Wirkung der Substanz:
- Anflutungsgeschwindigkeit
- Andocken an Rezeptoren
- Eingriff in die Produktion und Steuerung
körpereigener Botenstoffe, die das
emotionale Empfinden gravierend beeinflussen
- Endorphine
- Dopamine
- etc.

Any help appreciated, I can't find the term anywhere.

English translation:flooding rate, or rate of absorption
Explanation:
The Duden gives only examples for "anfluten": eg. "das Wasser kam angeflutet", and "mit den angenehm leicht und rasch anflutenden intravenösen Schlafmitteln (Medizin)".

HTH a little.

I found out in the meantime that it really refers to the flow speed of alcohol molecules through the human organism. Thanks all the same!
