Many people do not know the negative effects of soft drinks on their health. According to many scientific research, here are some of the negative effects on our body.
- First 10 minutes
A glass of soda contains 10 tablespoons of sugar, which is 100% more than the allowable daily dose. Sodas are full of phosphorus, which is responsible for taste. That makes us keep that much sugar in the body, which we will otherwise blow up as a natural defensive mechanism.
- After 20 minutes
There is an increase in glucose and insulin, which leads to the conversion of sugar into fat in the liver. Your liver is overworking in those moments.
- After 40 minutes
Your body has completely absorbed the caffeine from the drink within 40 minutes. Blood flow increases and the liver produces even more sugar and sends it into your bloodstream. Your brain begins to block hormone receptor Adenosine, which prevents fatigue.
- After 45 minutes
Secretion of dopamine increases, which significantly affects your brain. This makes you feel better, and this effect is similar to the one caused by heroin.
- After 50 minutes
The phosphoric acid bonds with magnesium, zinc and calcium which are in your body already.
- After 60 minutes
The caffeine in our body starts working and all minerals, including magnesium, calcium and zinc are excreted with urination. According to many studies caffeine interferes with calcium absorption and leads to calcium loss through urine. As you already know, calcium is the most important thing for our bones. It helps in formation of the bones and keeps them healthy. The lack of calcium in the body leads to osteoporosis.
- After more than an hour
The deployment of sugar through the body is in its final stage. You feel full of energy, but you should expect frequent mood swings.
Along with soft drinks, the body has excreted all the water and nutrients needed for the proper functioning of your body. What is more, the risk of developing diabetes increases. For further reading about Alkaline Water and It’s Importance for people with Diabetes.
