You will be horrified to learn what happens to your body after consuming just one glass of Coca Cola
Written by SOT.COM.AL 26 Prill 2023
Cola is a popular soft drink. But the sugar and caffeine they contain can be harmful to your health. What happens in your body when you drink a glass of cola?
Cola is one of the most popular soft drinks around the world, especially liked by children and young people. No wonder, because the manufacturers' advertising strategies seem to be working.
But what exactly does the drink contain? The exact composition is kept as a secret by the manufacturers. But the main ingredients are known.
These are water, carbon dioxide, flavors, colors, phosphoric acid, caffeine and sugar. And the latter are in very high quantities. A 0.2 liter glass contains over 21 g of sugar.
And that's more than 90 percent of the WHO's recommended daily intake. What about the Light or Zero variant? They also contain artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, and a relatively large amount of phosphoric acid. The caffeine content is between 10 and 25 milligrams per 100 milliliters, depending on the manufacturer.
How unhealthy is cola really? – This is what happens in your body after consuming it
A nice ice-cold cola: the taste on the tongue, the tingling sensation of the carbonation. But what is happening in that moment in your body? Let's say you drink a can or a 0.33 liter glass. You are instantly consuming the equivalent of seven teaspoons of sugar. After 20 minutes, the blood sugar level reaches its peak. This triggers the release of insulin, which prompts the liver to convert sugar into fat.
After 40 minutes the blood pressure increases, the pupils dilate. Adenosine receptors are blocked in the brain, which prevents sleepiness. After 45 minutes, the sent substance, dopamine, is released more and more. This ensures that we feel happiness and well-being. After an hour, phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the lower digestive tract, which boosts metabolism. This effect is enhanced by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners, which promote the excretion of calcium in the urine.
After more than 60 minutes comes the drop of sugar. Get nervous. After a few hours, the caffeine crash follows. All the juice you got with the cola is gone. And with that, the important nutrients the body needs end up down the toilet.
Në këtë mënyrë Coca Cola mund të dëmtojë edhe kockat tuaja. Cola përmban acid fosforik (E338). Nëse kjo merret në sasi të mëdha, thithja e kalciumit në kocka mund të pengohet dhe nxitet resorbimi i kockave. Kalciumi është një pjesë e rëndësishme e formimit të kockave dhe vendimtare për densitetin tonë të kockave. Nëse trupit i mungon kalciumi, kjo mund të shkaktojë gjithashtu sëmundjen e kockave, osteoporozën.
Kafeina nxit sëmundjet kardiovaskulare
Cola gjithashtu quhet shpesh një “pick-me-up”. Kjo është për shkak të kafeinës që përmban. Nëse konsumoni shumë kafe ose Cola, ju gjithashtu tejkaloni sasinë maksimale ditore të rekomanduar të kafeinës (400 mg në ditë). Kjo mund të rrisë presionin e gjakut.
Presioni i lartë i gjakut konsiderohet një faktor rreziku për sëmundje të shumta si atak në zemër, insuficienca kardiake dhe goditjet në tru.
Those who like to drink coffee should avoid energy drinks and caffeinated drinks. A combination of the two can quickly lead to an overdose , which can cause long-term health damage.
Damaged teeth, bad skin, bad bones, bad for the cardiovascular system and bad for body weight. It is better to stop consuming it - that would be ideal based on its effects.
However, you should keep in mind that all of the above points are about overconsumption. Everyone can consume a glass of cola once in a while without being directly affected by the harmful effects. The motto is: Enjoy it, but in small quantities and rarely!
