Has it ever crossed your mind that although it might taste cold and refreshing as it goes down, Coca Cola might not be the best thing for you?
Most people have heard the hype surrounding some of the dangers of consuming high fructose corn syrup. It is one of the most prominent ingredients in dark colored carbonated sodas -but were you aware of the blow-by-blow effects of consuming such beverages?
A pharmacist out of Great Britain named Niraj Naik researched just that. He got down to the nitty-gritty and discovered the effects a Coca-Cola has on you within the first 60 minutes of consuming it.
You will be amazed!
No More Gag Reflex
Within the first 10 minutes of consuming a Coke, your body is essentially being forced to digest the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar – which is interestingly an average human’s daily recommended intake. Normally this much sugar hitting your system so fast within such a short period of time would cause a gag reflex, but flavoring, in this case helps you keep it down.
