"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions"- Dalai Lama XIV
So, If you think you can #OpenHappiness by opening a bottle of Coke and sipping like Alia Bhatt then my dear friend this news can come as a shocker to you.
According to Wikipedia, the Ingredients of Coca-Cola includes:
- Carbonated water
- Sugar (sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) depending on country of origin)
- Phosphoric acid
- Caramel color (E150d)
- Natural flavorings
A typical can of Coca-Cola (12 fl ounces/355 ml) contains 38 grams of sugar (usually in the form of HFCS), 50 mg of sodium, 0 grams fat, 0 grams potassium, and 140 calories. On May 5, 2014, Coca-Cola said it is working to remove a controversial ingredient,brominated vegetable oil, from all of its drinks.
But nobody till date knew what happens to you after you sip a whole can of coke.
Here's what happens exactly:
So what exactly happens when you drink it?
In the first 10 minutes of Coke consumption:
Huge amount of sugar hits your system. The phosphoric acid cuts the flavour so you don't puke it all out.
In 20 minutes of the consumption:
Your blood sugar spikes due to the high level of sugar. It makes your liver turn it into fat.
In 40 minutes of Coke consumption:
Caffeine gets completely absorbed in your system. Your pupils dilate and blood pressure rises. There is high sugar stream in your blood which makes the adenosine receptors in your brain to prevent drowsiness.
In 45 minutes of Coke consumption:Your body's dopamine production boosts and stimulates the pleasure centres of your brain. This is the same way your body reacts to heroin.
In 60 minutes of Coke consumption:The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine which provides a boost to your metabolism.
After 60 minutes of Coke consumption:The caffeine’s diuretic properties make you want to pee and you evacuate necessary nutrients of your body, like bonded calcium, magnesium, zinc, sodium, electrolyte and water. The nutrients which leave your body could have been used to keep you hydrated and your bones stronger .
So, Do You think a Can of Coke will follow the same fate as of Meri Maggi in India?
