How Does Coke Affect Your Body?



Coca-Cola, call it "cola," "pop," or "soda," is one of the most popular cola brands, with millions of people drinking it daily. But have you ever questioned what happens to your body and is Coke unhealthy for you?

Fluctuating blood sugar

Regular-flavored Coca-Cola provides 39 grams of sugar per 12-ounce can, 77% of your daily maximum. However, a few drinks might cause a sugar surge and collapse.

Increase your risk of type 2 diabetes

Sugar-sweetened drinks are linked to obesity and type 2 diabetes. Cokes may raise your risk of several illnesses, particularly if you consume them often.

Teeth discolouration and deterioration

Many people associate Coke with thirst-quenching memories because to its deep mahogany hue. However, this dark tint may eventually cause yellowish-brown, decaying teeth.

You may have a shorter lifetime

Drinking Coke sometimes is OK, but some research show that drinking it routinely may shorten your longevity.

Risk of weight gain and obesity may rise

Coke has added sugars and no fiber, protein, or health fats—three nutrients that promote satiety. "Too many added sugars can cause weight gain."

You can hydrate your body

Coke offers very little nutrition—but it is a liquid, and therefore can help support a person's hydration status.
