If you want to keep your health, don’t drink coke
If you want to keep your health, don’t drink coke. Actually all of the soft drinks are so harmful that nutritionists have problem describing all the consequences of drinking them. According to the experts, on the top of the chart stays coca-cola.
The main reason for the harmful effects of most soft drinks is the quantity of sugar, that is in them, although manufacturers try to ignore this fact, or try to put on the market drinks with low sugar content.
But what happens in our body from the moment we have drank coca-cola
In the first 10 minutes 1 teaspoon of sugar enters in the body. 1 teaspoon is the maximum recommended daily dose. But the phosphoric acid, added in the drink, removes the sweetness and allows sugar to be absorbed faster by the organism.
In another 20 minutes, the level of sugar in the blood has increased and this leads to disposal of extra insulin quantities. The liver reacts by turning the sugar into fats.
In 40 minutes the caffeine absorption ends. Pupils dilate, blood pressure increases, and the liver starts discarding more sugar in blood. Adenoid receptors in the brain are blocked, thus preventing drowsiness.
In 45 minutes dopamine production is increased and also the center of pleasure in the brain is being stimulated. Dopamine is the hormone which is one of the main neurotransmitters in the body. This is how narcotic substances act.
In one hour phosphoric acid is bounding calcium, magnesium and zinc in the intestines and in this way increases metabolism. The excretion of these elements is increased also. This means that your body is loosing vital chemicals.
In more than one hour, the diuretic effect of the coke starts to act. This chemical process makes people irritable and tired.
