What Sugar Does to Your Body…in Minutes!

October 22, 2010

Can you go sugar free for a day, weekend or for life.  Here is happen’s to your body within 60 minutes of drinking soda.

10 minutes – 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system, which is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake.  You would normally vomit from such an intake but the phosphoric acid cuts the flavor

20 minutes – your blood sugar skyrockets.  Your liver attempts to maximize insulin production in order to turn high levels of sugar into fat

40 minutes – As your body finishes absorbing the caffeine, your pupils dilate, your blood sugar pressure rises and your liver pumps more sugar into the bloodstream.  Adenosine receptors in your brain are blocked and preventing you from feeling how tired you really may be

45 minutes – Your body increases dopamine production, causing you to feel pleasure and adding to the addictiveness of the beverage.  This physical neuro response works the same way as it would if we were consuming herion!!!

60 minutes – The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine which boosts your metabolism a bit further.  High doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners compound this effect so if you think drinking the diet or zero stuff is better – its even worse.  High doses of real or fake sugar increase the urinary excretion of calcium.  The caffeine’s diuretic  properties come into play and then you have to go and guess what comes out.  You body will eliminate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was otherwise heading to your bones.  You will also flush out the sodium, electrolytes and water.  Your body has eliminated the water that was in the soda.  And in the process it was infused with nutrients and minerals your body would have otherwise used to hydrate your system or build body cells, bones and teeth.

Think about what just happened to all the vitamins you were taking!?

60 minutes – the sugar crash begins and you become irritable or sluggish or both.  You feel like crap.  Now think of all the times you used soda for mix and how even worse you felt afterwards.

We dare you to drop sugar like you would if you were holding a toxic chemical in your hand.
