It’s amazing to know that soda (soft drinks or “pop” as it’s called in certain areas of the country) is one of the most popular beverages in the United States, second only to water. Americans guzzle 57 gallons of soda per person every year. Because of the recent rise in obesity in the U.S., a lot of research has been done to determine what happens when consumers drink soda.
Just so you know, I’m on a journey to lose weight and improve my health and I was an avid soft drink connoisseur. My drink of choice was Coca Cola and Dr. Pepper if Coke wasn’t available. I thought it would be interesting to examine what’s going on when a person drinks soda versus what happens inside the body when you drink Iaso Tea. I’m now drinking Iaso Tea, and I can tell you that from the beginning, there is a huge difference in how I feel when I drink tea versus how I feel when I drink soft drinks. So let’s get started…
According to Harvard research, drinking sugary soft drinks has been linked to diabetes, heart disease and a number of chronic diseases. Basically a constant diet of sugary drinks can lead to a number of health issues. For more information on their findings, read an article from the Harvard School of Public Health on Soft Drinks and Disease.
What Happens When You Drink Soda
Soda… as soon as it’s swallowed, the pancreas is notified and rapidly begins to create insulin in response to the influx of sugar. Insulin is a hormone the body uses to move sugar from food or drink into the bloodstream, where cells are then able to use it for energy. Within just 20 minutes, blood sugar levels spike and the liver responds to the insulin by turning sugar into fat for storage.
Within 45 minutes of drinking a single 20-ounce glass of soda, caffeine from the drink is fully absorbed, and as a result, your pupils dilate and your blood pressure rises. The body produces more dopamine, which stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain — just like a low-grade line of cocaine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers.
Once an hour has passed, the body begins to experience a blood sugar crash, which is around the same time a person reaches for their second soda, or for another sweet and sugar snack to suffice. Soda’s connection to the obesity epidemic is so intertwined, Harvard researchers have calculated each additional soda consumed increases the risk of obesity 1.6 times.
What Happens When You Drink Iaso Tea
Alternatively there is Iaso Tea, a blend of herbs designed to help the body rid itself of toxins. As a result of drinking this tea you receive the added “sugar free” benefit of weight loss vs. the weight gain and sugar spikes that can occur from drinking soda. Modern processing of foods and the pasteurization of dairy products destroys the enzymes that are necessary to our daily diet in order to support a healthy colon. Iaso Tea also helps the colon to work more efficiently to break down our food for absorption into the bloodstream and eliminating waste.
