I know it tastes great, I also know we’re addicted to it but do we know what it’s doing to us? What happens 20 minutes after drinking a can of cola harms your body the most!!
Infographic reveals the effects the fizzy drink has in just an hour… from a 20-minute blood sugar spike to the ‘crash’. Fizzy drinks are known for leaching the body of vital nutrients including calcium and zinc. The graphic was compiled by The Renegade Pharmacist, a blog run by former UK pharmacist Niraj Naik and includes a seven-stop breakdown.
The sugar hit is so intense, he says, that you would normally vomit, except the phosphoric acid inside the coke ‘cuts the flavor’ so you can keep the liquid down.
20 Minutes: Blood sugar spikes
40 Minutes: The caffine hit
45 Minutes: Dopamine production
60 Minutes: Boost the metabolism but soon after as the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash
You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, urinated the water that was in the Coke.
