What Happens to Your Body When You Drink a Can of Coke?

By Wade Meredith from Blisstree.com

Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? Because it gets you high.

They removed the cocaine almost 100 years ago. Why? Because it was redundant.

So What Happens to Your Body When You Drink a Can of Coke?

In the first 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 flavour, 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. (And there’s plenty of that at this particular moment.)

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

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production, stimulating the pleasure centres of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

> 60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

> 60 minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolytes, and water.

> 60 minutes: As the rave inside you dies down, you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like hydrating your system, or building strong bones and teeth. This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (As little as two if you’re a smoker.)

Juice Fasting Basics – Plus Free Juice Fasting Webinar

veggiesss

Juice fasting can be a powerful way of cleansing our body. There is no faster and more effective way to eliminate a host of toxins that you have accumulated for decades through processed foods, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs and other environmental contaminants.

Before movies like Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead came out and popularized juice fasting for rapid physical healing, rejuvenation, and weight loss, juice fasting has been used to experience higher states of awareness, mental clarity and deep spiritual realizations. No matter what your intent is, juice fasting is guaranteed to produce massive changes in your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. In this blog post I am going to briefly discuss some important key points of juice fasting.

What is Juice Fasting?

Juice fasting is a type of fasting and “detox diet” in which a person consumes only fruit and vegetable juices. Being available only in digestible carbohydrates, these foods are digested rapidly. People choose to undergo juice fasts for various reasons and via various methods.

Juicing at Home vs. Buying from the Store

It’s easy to make your own juices–just buy a juicer, fruits and vegetables and some mason jars for storage, and you’re all set. But isn’t it easier to just buy a bunch of juices from the store, or through a cleansing program online? Sure it is, but it’s a lot pricier, and sometimes not always the healthiest route to go. Many bottled juices sold in grocery stores have extremely high sugar contents and artificial additives that almost cancel out their healthfulness of juice fasting entirely. If it’s freshly juiced at the store though, then it’s most likely pure juice with nothing else added. Just be sure to check the ingredients and double check with someone who works there.

If you opt to juice at home, why not try these juice recipes from our website?

Daily Planning

Juice cleanses can last as long as you’d like them to. But if you’re just starting out, you might want to limit your first fast to four – five juices a day for two or three days so your body and mind have time to adjust. After all, it’ll probably be the first time you live off of liquids for a long period of time. And if you choose to do a second juice fast in the future, extending it to one week wouldn’t hurt.

But listen to your body. If you feel faint, constantly hungry or nauseous, you may want to consult a doctor to find out if juice cleansing is right for you.

How Much Juice Should I Drink During a Juice Fast?

Many people make the mistake of not drinking enough juice. Not drinking enough juice can cause very unpleasant healing reactions and ravenous hunger. This is not about hunger or deprivation – this is about nourishing and healing the body. Drink as much juice as desired. Drink at least a gallon per day, and more if there is hunger. If there is hunger, it means not enough nutritionally based juice is being consumed. Ideally, it should actually feel as if one is drinking too much juice. So remember, when it comes to juice fasting, more is better.
