What Happens To Your Body Within The First Hour of Drinking a Coke

By SM Gibson | ANTIMEDIA | July 30, 2015

… Thanks to the efforts of Niraj Naik, The Renegade Pharmacist, we no longer have to be in the dark about what Coke is actually doing to our bodies once we ingest it. Naik has published in detail what happens to our system within the first hour of guzzling down a can of Coke—and it isn’t good.

“First 10 minutes

10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor, allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes in

Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes in

Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes in

Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centres of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

60 minutes in

The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

After 60 minutes

The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

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, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.”

  3. But what about Pepsi? Surely it’s not the same, ’cause man I love my Wild Cherry Pepsi. I bet the cherry makes it healthy…

    • I tried a new drink(in Australia) called doctor Pepper……It was dreadful. I poured most of it down the sink. Advertising has a lot to answer for.

  4. I decided about 40 years ago that sugar is not good for you(just look at how many diabetics there are around us). There were also warnings about how MUCH sugar was in soft drinks. So I stopped putting sugar in my tea, and for about one week, it seemed awful. So I put some sugar in my tea and it was WORSE.
    I now drink tea without sugar and I won’t touch soft drinks like Coke.

    SUGAR is REALLY BAD for your body. I don’t go near it now. Clean fresh cool water is the best drink on the planet.
