Are you thirsty for something irresistible?
Do you want that sweet sensation circling your tongue?
Coca-cola just might be the right beverage for you!
A typical can of Coca-Cola contains 38 grams of sugar, 50 mg of sodium, and 140 calories. With its sweet taste, your mouth will surely want more.
The year 1886 is when this magical drink was invented. John “Doc” Pemberton is a pharmacist whose inventions usually fail in the pharmacies. He invented a lot of drugs but none of them made money to be called a success. Getting tired of that, he decided he wanted to make something that could finally be his breakthrough. He wanted something that would bring him success commercially. During his time, thankfully, the soda fountain was getting very popular for social gathering. With these, Coca-Cola was born.
Coca-Cola, more commonly known as Coke, is a carbonated soft drink. It is a mix of ingredients and is carefully made so as to please anyone’s taste buds. It is composed of carbonated water, sugar, caffeine, phosphoric acid, caramel color, and natural flavorings. Aside from its heavenly taste, Coke also poses medical benefits to its consumers. These benefits include easing one’s digestion, focusing one’s mind, and increasing one’s energy.
According to scientists and doctors alike, Gastric Phytobezoar, a condition where a person suffers from stomach blockages, can be treated with a glass of Coke. The fizzy drink, with its high acidity, allows the food to pass through, breaking down the blockages and acting like gastric acid. Also, aside from easing severe pain in the abdomen, Coke can actually spark increased concentration and mental focus with its caffeine entering your bloodstream. And, if your attention levels are dropping, a mouthful of Coke could cure you and get you back up to speed. As a rich source of sugar, drinking a can of Coke can induce a sugar rush and increase your energy to get on with your day.
However, regardless of the benefits it presents us consumers, we must always consume in moderation. Anything too much is not good for anyone’s health. Nonetheless, no one can deny the delicious sweet taste many of us will crave for once we taste Coke. The beloved drink is a nice treat especially when it is served ice-cold when drinking with friends and families.
