Many of you know that Coca Cola is harmful to health, but few people know – “why, how?” What happens to our body after a little bottle of this stuff is drunk?
Read this article and after all, think carefully – whether you should continue to drink Coca Cola.
We’ll review chronologically what happens to our body after drinking a bottle of Coca Cola:
In the first 10 minutes – the sugar in the Coca- Cola Products is a powerful blow to our body. Typically, in such a case, the so-called sugar overdose causes vomiting, but since Cola is a very cunning mixture, it contains phosphoric acid, which prevents vomiting. Because of this unusual effect some parents give their children a Coke in case of disorders of the stomach, but it is wrong and unjustified.
During the next 20 minutes, the body tries to resist the sugar overdose that occurs and a powerful ejection of insulin in the bloodstream occurs, the liver breaks down the sugar and turns it into fat.
During 40 minutes, the caffeine contained in Coca Cola, is completely absorbed into the body. Pressure is growing in response to the increased efflux of glucose in the blood.
The brain blocks the adenosine receptors that contribute to combating sleepiness. The pupils widen.
By the 45th minute, the production of the hormone dopamine is increased, which stimulates the pleasure center of the brain. The similar effect on the body have some drugs, such as heroin.
After one hour after consuming the small bottle of Coca-Cola, the phosphoric acid accelerates the metabolism through the binding of calcium, zinc and magnesium in the intestines.
The result is complicated by the huge dose of sugar and artificial sweeteners. The diuretic effect of caffeine starts to act.
The calcium is washed from the bones, effluxes in the urine, and this process weakens the bones.
Together with the calcium, magnesium, zinc, sodium, and water leave the body as well.
Already in the 65th minute, an acute shortage of sugar is created in the body, which leads to sleeplessness and nervousness.
The lack of sugar replaces the lack of caffeine, so you feel fatigue and malaise. The organism has lost more fluid than it got together with the Coke.
As soon as the effect of Coca Cola passes, you feel discomfort, but it all goes, if you drink a next cup of this drink! But think about it – whether it’s worth it?!
The regular consumption of Coca Cola contributes to the development of hypertension and obesity.
Artificial sweeteners such as aspatram (E951), cause even greater thirst, which is another benefit for the producers of similar drinks, which use them.
In the final result, the use of large doses of artificial sweeteners, leads to nervous disorders and slow the mental development.
Also, the Coke is consisted of some substances that reduce the activity of the intestines and stomach enzymes that are essential in eliminating body fat and are the main reason for the formation of fatty deposits.
