Coke Damage

Coke diagramTen minutes – 10 teaspoon of sugar hits your system, 100% of your daily recommended.  You do not immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down

Twenty 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 is plenty of that at this particular moment.

Forty Minutes – Caffeine absorption is complete.  Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream.  The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

Forty five 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.

Sixty Minutes -The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestines, providing a further boost in metabolism.  This is compounded by higher doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

Sixty Minutes – The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play.  (It makes you have to pee). It is now assured that you will evacuated the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that has headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte, and water.

Sixty Minutes – As the rave inside of you dies down you will start to have a sugar crash.  You may become sluggish and/or irritable.  You have also now, literally, pissed away all of the water all of water that was in the Coke.  But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build or build strong bones and teeth.
