Have you ever wondered what exactly happens after you drink Coke?

cokeAfter 10 minutes
Ten tea spoons of sugar contained in a glass of Cola hit your system

After 20 minutes
A leap of insulin levels in bloodstream occurs. The liver converts all the sugar into fat.

After 40 minutes
Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises, just like after taking amphetamines. The liver releases more sugar into the blood stream to overcome this.

After 45 minutes
Body raises production of dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure centre. Heroin has the same principle of operation.

After 1 hour
Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. Releasing of calcium through urine also rises.

After more than 1 hour
Diuretic effect of the drink enters in “the game”. The calcium, magnesium and zinc are removed out of the organism, which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time we have already become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in a coca cola, is removed by the urine.
The active ingredient of Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting of the concentrate have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.

Do you still feel like a Coke? If this doesn’t turn you off drinking Coke, then wait until our next newsletter when I will tell you what the ingredients of Coke do to your body.
