Here is what happens in your body after you enjoy a soft drink:
Within the first 10 minutes,10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. This is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake, and the only reason you don’t vomit as a result of the overwhelming sweetness is because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.
Within 20 minutes, your blood sugar spikes, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.
Within 40 minutes, caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.
Around 45 minutes, your body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of narcotic use.
After 60 minutes, you’ll have a sugar crash and become irritable while your cravings will become very powerful in hopes to find a way to bring your blood sugar back up again.
Diet soda drinkers are not off the hook because the health risks are very similar to those of regular soda drinkers. The fake sugars used in diet drinks are very confusing to the human body.
One of the best things that you can do for your health is to choose to hydrate your body with water instead of soft drinks. Every chemical reaction that takes place in the body requires water as an ingredient. We know far too much about health and wellness now to continue consuming soda pop and soft drinks. There are better uses that have been discovered for these products in the area of astringents and cleaners to remove rust and grime from surfaces.
