Despite its harmful effects on our health, Coke is a popular drink, enjoyed by a great number of people.
However, the aim of this article is to inform you whether it is wise to continue consuming it. We will reveal its effects on your entire health immediately after you drink a glass of Coke:
The first 10 minutes
10 minutes after you have consumed it, you experience the same effects as if you have consumed 10 tsp of sugar, which is 100% of the daily recommended intake of sugar. Moreover, you also consume a high amount of phosphates which give Coke its specific taste.
After 20 minutes
The glucose levels increase immensely, which leads to increased insulin secretion. Hence, it stimulates the liver to convert them into fat.
After 40 minutes
The circulation is increased since the caffeine is completely absorbed, and the liver releases more sugar in the blood. This blocks the adenosine receptors in the brain, which leads to a feeling of exhaustion.
After 45 minutes
Your body releases more dopamine and it fortifies your brain’s pleasure focus, an effect similar to the one of heroin.
At 60 minutes
Calcium, magnesium and zinc are tied to the lower digestive system, which stimulates the function of the digestive system. This causes an altered excretion of calcium through urine.
After 60 minutes
The diuretic effects of caffeine start to act and all the minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and zinc intended for the bones, along with electrolytes and water, are eliminated through urine.
A bit after 60 minutes
Due to a sugar crash, you will experience mood swings and lack of energy. Coke has significantly increased the risk of diabetes, and it has discarded all the water necessary for your digestive system, teeth and bones.
