Why you should Drink Warm Water...
Cleansing precedes regeneration. Warm water keeps your digestive tract clean.
Why you should avoid Carbonated Drinks...
10 minutes after drinking a Carbonated Drink: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. This amount of sugar content should make you vomit as soon as it enters the body. However, the phosphoric acid in the beverage dulls the sweetness, enabling you to keep the drink down.
20 minutes after drinking a Carbonated Drink: Blood-sugar levels increase dramatically, causing a burst of insulin. The liver then turns the high amounts of sugar circulating our body into fat.
40 minutes after drinking a Carbonated Drink: By now, the body has absorbed all of the caffeine from the drink, causing an increase in blood pressure. By this point, the adenosine receptors in the brain have been blocked, preventing fatigue. The production of dopamine has increased - a neurotransmitter that helps control the pleasure and reward centers of the brain.
1 hour after drinking a Carbonated Drink: A sugar crash begins, causing irritability and drowsiness. In addition, the drink is cleared from the body via urination, along with nutrients like Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc, leading to dehydration and fatigue.
These drinks are not just high in high fructose corn syrup, but it is also packed with refined salts and caffeine. Regular consumption of these ingredients in the high quantities you find in such a drink and other processed foods and drinks, can lead to higher blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Sugar itself may even be addictive. Rats given high doses of sugar in their diets displayed changes in the brain similar to those produced by cocaine, morphine and nicotine, according to Bart Hoebel, a neuroscientist from Princeton University.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, people who drink 1-2 cans of sugary beverages daily are 26% more likely to develop Type-2 diabetes.
All this information about the ill-effects of Carbonated Drinks was received by me via an online post.
I never had alcoholic drinks (irrespective of their percentage) in life, however, I used to regularly consume Soft / Carbonated Drinks. I stopped consuming even Carbonated Drinks since May 2017. It's been 2+ years now, and I'm happy about not having had even a sip.
