The innocent-looking sugary, fizzy drinks that are an indispensable part of our daily lives can also be extremely harmful to us. Here are the reasons:

1. Due to the regular consumption of carbonated drinks, it is more difficult for the body to absorb useful substances. Phosphoric acid, which is often contained in carbonated drinks, depletes calcium and magnesium in our body with extreme speed. Namely, these two substances strengthen and preserve our immunity.

2. Fizzy drinks often contain high fructose corn syrup, which has high levels of free radicals linked to tissue damage, the development of diabetes and complications of diabetes. Also, in sweet drinks there is often an excessive amount of sugar, which is definitely harmful to the body, or the modern substitute for sugar - aspartame, which is carcinogenic in excessive consumption.

3. Drinks that are stored in plastic bottles (this also applies to mineral water) contain the toxic chemical bisphenol A, which causes harm to the body.

4. Carbonated drinks increase weight. Regular consumption of carbonated drinks can lead to obesity. It turns out that every sweet taste we taste in our mouth sends a signal to our body to conserve fat and carbohydrates. Also, sugary drinks promote the release of insulin in the body, which in turn blocks its ability to burn fat

This is how these drinks often turn out to be our biggest enemy to looking good and feeling fit.

Useful substitutes for carbonated drinks: water, freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, tea – hot/cold, ayran, fresh milk.
