Could Your Cola Cause Damage to Your Muscles?

0 Shares

When you drink can after can of cola soft drinks, your potassium levels can decrease significantly. This deficiency can lead to muscle weakness, extreme fatigue and even paralysis.

Greek researchers discovered six reports of cola-induced potassium deficiency where the range of consumption equaled two to nine liters of cola per day. This may seem excessive, the researchers stated in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, but stressed that “it is not rare.”

Other effects of potassium deficiency include:

  • Increased blood pressure levels
  • Decreased mental clarity
  • Skin irritations
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Constipation and other digestive issues.

Instead of carbonated cola, you should drink more water, green tea or all-natural fruit juice to help stay hydrated and boost your vitamin and mineral intake.
