Mmm, wouldn’t a tall, frosty glass of Coca-Cola really hit the spot right now? Before you suckle on the carbonated syrup teat, Healthbolt blog tells you what exactly it does to your system:
• 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: 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)
• 45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
Everything in moderation, otherwise diabetes goes better with coke! — BEN POPKEN
