The Renegade Pharmacist has looked into the affect of Diet Coke on your body.
Former pharmacist Niraj Naik hit headlines last week when his study into Coca-Cola went viral online after outlining what allegedly happens to your body after drinking a can of Coke.
Now, the former UK pharmacist, has revealed what he believes happens to your body for an hour after drinking Diet Coke.
Niraj goes under the pseudonym The Renegade Pharmacist online and said he carried out the experience this weekend after ‘thousands’ of requests online:
First 10 Minutes – Tricks Your Taste Buds And Attacks Your Teeth
The Renegade Pharmacist claims: “The phosphoric acid attacks the enamel in your teeth, while the artificial sweeteners like aspartame hit your system. Aspartame may trigger taste receptors and trick your body into thinking it has just processed sugar.”
Last week he revealed what he believes Coca-Cola does to your body – and it was scary.
20 Minutes – May Switch On Fat Storage Mode
He added: “Like regular Coke this can trigger insulin, which sends your body into fat storage mode.”
40 Minutes – Can Cause Addiction
Niraj said: “The potentially deadly combination of caffeine and aspartame creates a short addictive high similar in the way cocaine works. Excitotoxins are released which may exhaust your brain by overstimulating it’s neuroreceptors, especially if consumed on a regular basis.”
60 Minutes – Depletes Nutrients, Makes You Hungry & Thirsty For More
He said: “Unlike the small amount of satisfaction you get from regular coke your body may still crave sweets. This makes you likely to reach for another soda, or worse, some other junk food you consider to be safe and the cycle continues.
“A can of diet coke provides no nourishment and would replace a more nutritious drink you could have drunk while potentially depleting your body of essential minerals.
“It will never quench your thirst as it dehydrates rather than hydrates your body. A lack of vital water can lead to brain fog, poor concentration, fatigue and feeling irritable.”
