Piling on The Pressure

ENaC's (epithelial sodium channels) tasks do not end at birth.  It plays a vital role in regulating the amount of sodium in your blood and this, in turn, determines your blood pressure. If ENaC channels malfunction, your blood pressure can skyrocket, putting you at risk of a stroke.

Your kidneys are sophisticated organs that clean the blood, continuously filtering out toxins and waste products and flushing away excess water. Waste processing takes place in about a million individual units known as nephrons, where tufts of fine blood vessels, know as capillaries, are entwined with tiny tubules that act as urine-collecting devices.
Amazingly, the whole of your blood passes through the kidney twice every hour. The red blood cells and plasma proteins are retained in the capillary,  but the salts and water are forced out into the kidney tubule. Almost all of the sodium and much of the water that is filtered are subsequently reabsorbed as the fluid passes down the kidney tubules. What remains is stored in the bladder and excreted as urine.

ENaC channels in the membranes of the kidney tubule cells are responsible for reabsorption of sodium. As in the lung , sodium uptake is accompanied by water, which leads to an increase in blood volume and, because the circulation is a closed system, raises the blood pressure. A diet high in salt (sodium chloride) is bad for you because more sodium is taken up, which drags more water with it, increasing your blood volume and therefore your blood pressure.
Conversely, if blood sodium levels are low, insufficient water is retained by the body, leading to a fall in blood pressure. This is why it is important to ensure that you eat enough unrefined sea salt in a hot climate , where a lot of salt is lost through sweating.

Mutations in any of the three genes that make up the ENaC channel affect blood pressure.  Those that lead to increased ENaC activity cause a hereditary form of hypertension known as Liddle's disease, whereas those that reduce ENaC activity result in low blood pressure. The latter are particularly dangerous as they lead to a life-threatening salt-losing syndrome in newborns and infants.  Because sodium uptake is reduced, less water is reabsorbed, so that the child quickly becomes dehydrated and the blood concentration of other ions ( especially potassium ) becomes unbalanced.  The disease is fatal unless it is quickly recognised and treated.

Fortunately, mutations in ENaC are rare. However, it is thought that one reason for the greater incidence of high blood pressure and its attendant complications in black people than in Caucasians is because they have relatively common variants in their ENaC channels genes that predispose them to increased sodium uptake.
Why this is the case is uncertain, but one suggestion is that people living near the Sahara evolved very efficient mechanisms for absorbing salt as it was in such short supply. While this is advantage when salt is only rarely obtainable, it becomes a handicap in our present world where much processed food is very high in salt.

Aya Soliman most unusual start in life .


Aya and Mahmoud (Pic:HarryPage)

Aya Soliman, born two days after her mum Jayne died, is 16 months old and the spitting image of her mother

Aya's mum died 2 days before she was born. 

Now she's 16 months old(2012), talking and ready to walk ....

Little Aya Soliman is the image of her mum... her ears, the shape of her hands, even her laugh.
It makes her proud dad Mahmoud delighted to see the similarities, but it's also bittersweet - because Aya was born two days AFTER her mum Jayne suddenly "died".
Tragic Jayne's heart was kept beating long enough to give her unborn baby girl a fighting chance of survival - but then her life support machine was switched off.
Shellshocked Mahmoud had to watch helplessly as his daughter, born 15 weeks premature and only just bigger than his hand, battled to live against the odds.
Now, 16 months on, Aya is almost walking and has said her first words - Dadda and Mama. In an exclusive interview with the Mirror, Mahmoud says: "Every time I look at Aya I think of her mum. She does things her mum did, like purse her lips in a certain way or the way she'll hold up her hand.
"It makes me smile to see. And like any father it makes me so happy to hear her first laugh or see her take her first steps. But at the same time it's a constant reminder that Jayne isn't here."

Jayne and Mahmoud Soliman (Pic:HarryPage)

The couple met in Abu Dhabi four years ago where Jayne, a former ice skating champ, worked as a coach and Mahmoud was a telecoms specialist. In an exclusive interview with the Mirror, he explains: "We were friends at first and then it just happened. You know when you get that feeling someone is perfect for you? That's what it was like. She was so bubbly and she loved me like I was the only person that mattered."
Within months, Mahmoud, 30, asked what her reaction would be if he asked her to be his wife.
He says: "I remember she said, 'Woah' but I only wanted her to consider it. Two weeks later we went for a meal and she said, 'Do you remember you asked if I'd consider marrying you? Well, I would.'"
Jayne converted to Islam before their April 2007 wedding and changed her name to Aya Jayne, meaning "miracle". But neither had any idea how prophetic that name would prove to be.
With Jayne 12 years older than Mahmoud, they wanted to try for a family straight away. They were traumatised after Jayne miscarried but delighted when she became pregnant again two months later.
They were both petrified something would go wrong but, when they saw their child's tiny heart beat during the one-month scan, they started to relax.
"Every day we'd sing to Jayne's bump and started to call the baby Sparky as she'd always be moving in the womb," recalls Mahmoud. But in January last year, with Jayne just 25 weeks pregnant, she came home feeling unwell.
Mahmoud recalls: "She said to me, 'I've got a headache' and cradled her head in her hands. Suddenly she vomited on the floor and I went to the kitchen to get her a glass of water. But then I heard a thud that shook the whole house. I shouted her name, hoping to hear her laugh. But when I went back upstairs, I saw her collapsed on the floor."
As Mahmoud bent down to lift his stricken wife, she affectionately called him by his nickname. "Moody Shmoody, don't hurt your back," she said.
"Those were the last words she ever said to me," he says. "I thought it was a fit, or something to do with the pregnancy. I never thought it was serious."
Jayne was airlifted to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford but a scan revealed she'd suffered a massive brain haemorrhage, brought on by an undetected cancerous brain tumour rupturing a blood vessel. "They told me there was nothing they could do," recalls Mahmoud. "I asked them to operate in case they could help her, but they said she was already brain-dead and there was no point."
However, doctors were able to shine the slimmest slither of hope onto Mahmoud. If they could keep her heart beating for two more days, they could give her steroids so their baby's lungs could grow stronger, taking her odds of survival from below 50% to way above it.
But Mahmoud says: "Even then they didn't know if Jayne could hold on. Sometimes on life support, people's bodies just give up."
But Jayne's heart did keep going, and Aya Jayne - named after her mum - was delivered by Caesarean section on January 9, two days after her mum had officially died.
"Those 48 hours were the most joyful and heartbreaking of my entire life," says Mahmoud. "I could barely function. But I knew that I had to stay strong - I was all Aya had."
Mahmoud couldn't bear to sit in while the op was carried out. Instead, one of Jayne's best pals held her hand, and later told Mahmoud how their 2lb 1oz daughter was placed onto Jayne so they were cheek to cheek. As Mahmoud first met his daughter, his wife's life support machine was being turned off.
"Jayne never met Aya - they had physical contact but Jayne was already dead," he says. "It really upsets me because Jayne didn't even get to see her, just to hold her once. It seems so unfair. But I truly believe Jayne stayed strong for Aya. She'd done everything she could to give our daughter the best chance."
For the next three months, Mahmoud kept a bedside vigil as Aya battled for life in an incubator. He had dreamed of the moment he could bring her home but, when that day arrived last March, he was terrified. "I was worried something would go wrong, I was so nervous," he says. "But my mum had come over from Egypt to help, so I got on with it."
In their home in Bracknell, Berkshire, photos of Jayne are everywhere.
Mahmoud plans to get Aya onto the ice rink as soon as possible so she can follow in her mum's footsteps, and her ice-skater friends are lining up to take her for her first lesson.
There's also a huge box filled with videos, cuttings, cards and photos that Mahmoud will keep for Aya until she's old enough to understand.
"I haven't watched a video of Jayne yet, I'm not ready," he says. "But when I do, Aya will be with me. I'll make sure she knows how amazing she was, and how much I loved her. Sometimes, when I'm putting Aya to bed, I'll tell her that her mum's watching over her. Or if she does something like her mum, I'll tell her.
"I still feel Jayne is watching over us. I see her in my dreams sometimes. She tells me I'm doing well. When she goes to leave, I ask if we should come with her but she says no. Then I wake up, and realise it was a dream but I wish it wasn't."

Drawing Life from Death

(except from  The Spark Of Life , Electricity in The Human Body, by Frances Ashcroft) [Time 8:23AM, 24/08/2016, counter @ 2088 3098]

Aya Soliman had a most unusual start in life, being born by Caesarean section two days after her mother Jayne was declared brain death.
Jayne, a champion ice skater, had a fatal brain haemorrhage when she was twenty-five weeks pregnant. She was flown by air ambulance to hospital in Oxford, but died shortly after arrival .
Although Jayne's brain was dead, doctors decided to keep her body alive to provide vital time for her daughter's lungs to mature.

Within the womb, the fetus floats in a cushioning sac of water. Its developing lungs are filled with fluid and it does not breath air, but obtains all the oxygen it needs via the umbilical cord that links it to the placenta. At birth, the water withing the lungs must be rapidly removed as the newborn child switches over to breathing air.This is achieved with the help of specialized epithelial sodium channels (ENaC channels) that are present in the cells that line the lung.
At birth the ENaC channels open, allowing sodium ions in the lung fluid to flow down their concentration gradient into the lung cells. because sodium ions  drag water with them, the lungs quickly dry out and so long as ENaC channels are present and functional, the lungs are rapidly cleared of fluid. Without ENaC, however, babies are at risk of drowning in their own fluid at birth, and may suffer from 'wet' lung.

During normal development ,  a rise in  steroid hormones switches on ENaC production a few weeks prior to birth, ensuring the lungs are fully mature when the baby  is delivered.
At twenty-five weeks of pregnancy, however, lung development is incomplete and the number of ENaC channels in the cells lining the lung is still very small. A chemical called surfactant that reduces the surface tension of the tiny air sacs in the lungs and so prevents their collapse is also low. Thus if a baby must be delivered early, and conditions permit, steroids are administered to the mother before birth. These cross over the placenta and help her premature baby's lungs mature. As a mother's womb is the optimal incubator for a baby, Jayne's body was kept alive (but brain death) on a life-support machine while steroids were given to provide her daughter with the best possible chance of life.

There is a further twist to this story. It turns out that at birth ENaC channels are stimulated to open more completely by stress hormone adrenaline, which rises dramatically in the mother's blood during the trauma of labour. This may explain why babies born by Cesarean section, where this stimulus is lacking, may have more difficulty clearing their lungs than those born naturally, and why they experience a higher incidence of respiratory complications in the postnatal period.

The Definition For Cancer Should Be : (*)

The real power which has the ability to initiate the manifestation of cancer in human body is the power of our psyche. If we could only understand this power, cancer treatment could take an entirely different approach in the future. We would NOT be chasing and killing the cancer cells to the very end , with normal cells often being murdered and killed in the process. We would find the distorted power within the psyche and accurately know how it works. This knowledge would enable us to enter the energy dimension and adjust the distortion, and would allow the sick mutated cells a chance to reverse the process.

To review (*)
1. Cancer is a physical manifestation of the result of a psychic energy blockage and distortion. For this reason, treatment has to start with the heart, not with the body, regardless of the names given, such as lung cancer, pancreas cancer, stomach cancer, brain cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, ovary cancer, prostate cancer, etc, all these merely tell the location of cancer, that's all. At this point, very few people clearly recognize the interconnected relationship between the human psyche and the healthy body.

2.Cancer is a signal of the desire for improvement in the quality of life and is an impetus for real change for the best. The growth in the number of cancer cases reflects that the lifestyles of a growing of people do NOT match their inner desires. Currently, improvement in modern life quality focuses primarily in the material area. The energy of the human psyche is often distorted. In certain terms, humanity has reached a dead end.

3. Cancer is a Turning Point in Life. cancer patients need to learn how to bring forth suppressed emotional energy and redirect this energy to transform and improve their quality of life. 

The Secret To Healing Cancer Through Psychological And Spiritual Growth

A human being is more than just a physical body but consists of body, mind, social and spiritual dimensions. They must all be considered if one seriously seeks to heal the body.the modern medicine had many areas that needed to be expanded upon and improved and learn more about the effects of the human spirit and psyche on the physical body.

Cancer is much more than just a physical illness. Therefore relying on drug improvements and the current methods and philosophy of medical science to develop cancer treatment techniques is like climbing a tree to catch a fish.

When you red on there may be a resonant feeling of truth or you may wake up or enlightened  with a clear insight into your life. it does not matter whether it is you who has cancer or a friend, or a family member, or if you are an oncologist. I hope that this entirely new cancer treatment method derived from a very different understanding of cancer will lead you to a different thought paradigm. If you agree and are interested in promoting these concepts to fight cancer from mind and heart, you are welcome to join me and work with me and others like-minded .

Cancer is an illness that brings people face to face with mortality.

A new definition of Cancer - A Turning Point For A New Life. Cancer or any illness for that matter is a reflection of your life condition through your body. Cancer is not a cause, it is a result.
(Counter reads 20868461 @ 10:44AM, on 23/08/2016) The real causes of cancer are not what modern medicine thinks, such as carcinogenic food, chemical pollution, or free radicals, as some medical specialists have stated.

Take diet for example. Over emphasizing the belief that " eating carcinogenic food will cause cancer" only create fear in people and the stress from that fear will cause more harm to the body than the carcinogenic food itself. Thought, emotion and attitude towards life are much more deeply related to the body than the food we eat daily. Please remember : YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK, NOT WHAT YOU EAT.

Cancer is indeed a pathological change in genes. No doubt. However, what is the reason for this pathological change in genes? The biggest problem of present modern medical science is the fact that it is solely a material medical science. It is therefore not a true and complete medical science. The real cause of cancer cannot be found in the physical realm.

The real cause of cancer started in the realm of the human psyche. To put it another way, if the real cause in the realm of the psyche is not understood, not detected and not faced, any treatment that considers only the  body, the "physical matter" treatment, or so-called "generic technique treatment" only treat the symptoms, not the real cause.

This is why modern medical sciences so often reaches a state of "we cannot do anything more" with respect to curing cancer patients. When development of medical science not only takes our physical not only take our physical body into account, but also considers the role that the human psyche plays in physical health, it will then become a truly wholesome medical science.

Cancer should be seen as A Turning Point For A New Life in LIFE. This turning point is NOT about teaching you how to eat healthier food, or how to find more ways to defend yourself against cancer. This Turning Point is about teaching you HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BEST. It obliges you to honestly re-examine your self your attitude towards LIFE, to make you question yourself and ask what do you live for and to realize what kind of lifestyle you have. Through this kind of awareness, one can harness the power of cancer-causing change in genes and redirect it towards healing and the creation of a desirable lifestyle.

Majority of people including majority of medical professionals do NOT see this point. The whole medical-education establishment is geared towards physical medical science.  Cancer is the result of the effect of psychic causes, manifested in the physical body. The real power, which has the ability to initiate this manifestation process, is the power of our psyche.

BLACK CUMIN SEEDS , A Cure For All Things

 Only one that can stake a claim as a super food and that is Black cumin or ‘Habbat ul Sawda’ as it is known in Arabic. According to hadith, the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) is believed to have said: “In the black seed is healing for every disease except death.” (Sahih Bukhari). 

This Ancient Remedy 

“Cures All Diseases” 

HIV, AIDS, Diabetes, 

Cancer, Stroke, STDs,

 Arthritis & More …

"Cures All Diseases" HIV, AIDS, Diabetes, Cancer, Stroke,
STDs, Arthritis & Etcs; More ...


Indigenous to the Mediterranean region, the black seed plant (Nigella Sativa) has been used medicinally by people for hundreds of years. In fact the earliest written reference to the black cumin is in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament where Isaiah talks of the harvesting of the black seed. It was also mentioned in the Bible as the curative ‘black seed’ and has been used by Asian herbalists and the Romans for culinary purposes. However it never really held any place of importance until the rise of Islam.

A Cure For All Things
Within Arabo-Islamic culture, the black seed has been prescribed for various ailments including fever, asthma, chronic headaches, diabetes, digestion, back pain, infections and rheumatism. In fact, since its rise in popularity in the Seventh century the black seed has remained a staple of family medicine within the Muslim world. The black seed is believed to have 100 components and is a significant sources of fatty acids, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
Studies have confirmed numerous pharmacological benefits. Black cumin seeds are also called Nigella sativa seeds. These seeds have anti-diabetic and anti-cancer properties. They can be used to regulate the immune system, reduce pain, kill microorganisms, reduce inflammation, inhibit spasmodic activity, and open the tiny air passages in the lungs. Black seed oil protects the liver, the kidneys, and the stomach/ digestive system. It is a powerful antioxidant. [1]
This article will review some of the recent studies that show how black cumin seed oil can benefit your health.
I will be reporting on several recent black cumin seed studies covering other important health topics. I will review studies that investigated the use of black cumin seed oil for helping with obesity, balancing blood chemistry, reducing inflammation, supporting healthy immune system functioning, and alleviating nasal dryness and discomfort.

BLACK CUMIN SEEDS ARE HIGHLY 

RANKED AS A POWERFUL HERBAL 

MEDICINE

Researchers from Saudi Arabia recently reviewed scientific research on the benefits of using black seeds as an herbal medicine. They discussed the miraculous healing power of Nigella sativa and its prominent position among herbal medicines. Its high ranking is based on scientific evidence. Most of the therapeutic properties of this plant are linked to thymoquinone which is the major bioactive component of the essential oil contained in the seeds and in black cumin seed oil. [2]

BLACK SEEDS ARE USEFUL AS AN 

ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY 

TREATMENT

Black seeds have been employed for thousands of years as a spice and food preservative.
Black seed oil and seed constituents have shown potential medicinal properties in traditional medicine.
Scientific research provides clear evidence that both the oil and its active ingredients, such as thymoquinone, possess antioxidant effects. This is accomplished by enhancing the oxidant scavenger system, which has a detoxifying effect.
The oil and thymoquinone have potent anti-inflammatory effects on several experimental models of inflammation. These include: encephalomyelitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord after infection) colitis (inflammation of the colon), peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane which lines the inside of the abdomen and all of the internal organs), edema (the swelling of soft tissues as a result of excess fluid accumulation), and arthritis. [3]
Black seed oil and certain of its active ingredients showed a beneficial ability to regulate the immune system. It supported T-cell and natural killer cell-mediated immune activity. Most importantly, both black seed oil and its active ingredients expressed antimicrobial and anti-tumor properties toward different microbes and cancers. [4]
Many diseases involve inflammation, for example, cystic fibrosis, allergies and cancer.
The free radicals produced during inflammation can induce gene mutations and modifications of cancer related proteins.
The seeds and the oil have many pharmacological effects including antibacterial, antifungal, anti-tumor, analgesic and antipyretic activity.
This study investigated the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity of black seeds used with acute inflammation. An animal model was used. They induced a strong inflammatory response and then measured the different effects for the group that were treated with black seed oil and those who were not treated. They concluded that black seeds had therapeutic and antioxidant effects. [5]

BLACK SEEDS ARE USEFUL FOR TREATING 

OBESITY

Obesity is closely associated with an increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, insulin resistance, and immune dysfunction.
Thus obesity-mitigation strategies should take into account these secondary pathologies in addition to promoting weight loss. Recent studies indicate that black cumin (Nigella sativa) has cardio-protective, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, antioxidant, and immune-modulatory properties.
Given the growing interest in and the use of functional foods and nutraceuticals, as well as the increase in obesity and chronic diseases worldwide, further research into the therapeutic/preventive effects of black cumin will be beneficial. [6]
Researchers identified obesity as being the most prevalent health problem affecting all age groups. It leads to chronic heart disease, diabetes mellitus type 2, and stroke. Researchers reviewed the abstracts for 33 scientific articles related to obesity, herbal medicine, and traditional medicine. They found that black seeds, green tea, and black Chinese tea had anti-obesity effects. [7]
A study conducted by Iranian researchers examined the effects of long-term Nigella sativa supplementation and the use of aerobic training on the lipid profile and oxygen consumption of sedentary overweight women.
This was a randomized double-blind controlled trial. Twenty sedentary overweight females were divided into two groups and assigned to black seed supplementation or a placebo for the 8 weeks of the study. Both groups participated in aerobic training 3 times per week. Blood lipids and VO2 max were determined before the experiment began and at the end of 8 weeks. VO2 max is a measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen that a person can use when exercising. Higher levels of oxygen consumption are associated with higher levels of physical fitness. The women who took the placebo and who did aerobic training experienced reductions in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, and increased VO2 max. The women who used Nigella sativa supplementation and aerobic training experienced reductions in total cholesterol, triglyceride, low-density lipoprotein, and body mass index (ratio of fat to muscle). The women lost body fat and gained muscle. Black seed supplementation also increased high density lipoprotein and VO2 max. The researchers concluded that the combination of 8-weeks of aerobic training and Nigella sativa supplementation had a synergistic effect, and the combination of black seed consumption and aerobic training produced the greatest health benefit. [8]

BLACK SEEDS ARE USEFUL FOR NASAL 

DRYNESS AND NASAL DISCOMFORT

Turkish researchers worked with geriatric patients who had nasal dryness and related nasal symptoms.
They compared the effects of using black seed oil in the nasal passages of the nose to the use of a salt water solution.
Researchers found that nasal dryness, obstruction and crusting improved significantly with the use of black seed oil compared to salt water treatment. They noted that there was no significant difference between the effect of black cumin seed oil and salt water on nasal burning and itching. Researchers concluded that black seed oil is a better alternative for treating nasal mucosal symptoms due to aging. [11]
Black cumin seeds have been used in the Middle East for thousands of years, and it is easy to see why the seeds and oil are gaining popularity today in Western countries as well.

How Coca-Cola affects your body when you drink it ...

One can (330ml)of Coke will set your body lack (dehydrating) of another 32 cans(330 x 32 = 10560 ml) of water in your body. 

Are you still drinking coca-cola? welcome >> http://theinnozablog.blogspot.sg/search?q=coke



Sugary drinks are considered a major contributor to health conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and tooth decay. But have you ever wondered exactly what these beverages do to your body after consumption? One researcher has created an infographic that explains what happens to the body within an hour of drinking a can of Coca-Cola.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around half of the US population drink sugary beverages on any given day, with consumption of these drinks highest among teenagers and young adults.
There are approximately 10 teaspoons of added sugar in a single can of cola. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommend consuming no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar daily, meaning drinking just one serving of cola a day could take us well above these guidelines.
As such, it is no surprise that sugary drink consumption is associated with an array of health conditions. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, people who drink 1-2 cans of sugary beverages daily are 26% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, and last month, Medical News Today reported on a study claiming 184,000 global deaths each year are down to sugary drink consumption.
Now, an infographic created by British pharmacist Niraj Naik - based on research by health writer Wade Meredith - shows the damage a 330 ml can of Coca-Cola can do to the body within 1 hour of consumption.

Coca-Cola 'comparable to heroin' in how it stimulates the brain's reward and pleasure centers

According to Naik, the intense sweetness of Coca-Cola as a result of its high sugar content should make us vomit as soon as it enters the body. However, the phosphoric acid in the beverage dulls the sweetness, enabling us to keep the drink down.
Blood sugar levels increase dramatically within 20 minutes of drinking the Cola, explains Naik, causing a burst of insulin. The liver then turns the high amounts of sugar circulating our body into fat.
Within 40 minutes, the body has absorbed all of the caffeine from the Cola, causing a dilation of pupils and an increase in blood pressure. By this point, the adenosine receptors in the brain have been blocked, preventing fatigue.
Five minutes later, production of dopamine has increased - a neurotransmitter that helps control the pleasure and reward centers of the brain. According to the infographic, the way Coca-Cola stimulates these centers is comparable to the effects of heroin, making us want another can.
An infographic showing what Coca-Cola does to the body
This infographic reveals what Coca-Cola does to the body within 1 hour of consumption.
Image credit: Niraj Naik/Wade Meredith
1. FIRST 10 MINUTES: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended sugar daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit  from the overwhelming sweetness  because phosphoric acid cuts the flavour allowing  you to keep it down.

2. AFTER 20 MINUTES: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.)

3. AFTER 40 MINUTES : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your eyes pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

4. AFTER 45 MINUTES : You body ups your dopamine productions stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

5. AFTER 60 MINUTES : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc, in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

6.MORE THAN 60 MINUTES : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that   you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium , electrolyte and water.

7.BEYOND 60 MINUTES EFFECTS : As the rave inside of you dies down  you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You will also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke . But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body cold have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.


An hour after drinking the beverage, a sugar crash will begin, causing irritability and drowsiness. In addition, the water from the Cola will have been cleared from the body via urination, along with nutrients that are important for our health.
According to Naik, the infographic is not only applicable to Coca-Cola, but to all caffeinated fizzy drinks.
"Coke is not just high in high fructose corn syrup, but it is also packed with refined salts and caffeine," writes Naik on his blogThe Renegade Pharmacist. "Regular consumption of these ingredients in the high quantities you find in Coke and other processed foods and drinks, can lead to higher blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and obesity."

It will take around 5-6 hours for the body to achieve a 50% reduction in the amount of caffeine in the bloodstream - known as the "half-life" - and it is likely to take double this amount of time for women on birth control pills. It takes an average of 12 hours for the body to completely remove the caffeine from the bloodstream, though this does depend on individual factors.
"Pregnancy, liver damage and other drugs can also slow the rate at which caffeine is eliminated from the body," Dr. Farrimond told The Daily Mail. "Importantly, children and teenagers have a significantly longer half-life, meaning caffeine will remain in their bloodstream for longer and at higher levels than for adults. This is why caffeinated drinks can cause behavioral problems and anxiety issues in children."

Caffeine withdrawal may occur 12-24 hours after consumption

The infographic claims that individuals who consume energy drinks regularly may experience caffeine withdrawal in the 12-24 hours after consumption, which includes symptoms such as headache, irritability and constipation.
Dr. Farrimond explained that withdrawal symptoms can last up to 9 days and the severity depends on the amount of caffeine consumed.
For regular energy drink consumers, it takes around 7-12 days for the body to adapt to a regular intake of caffeine, according to the infographic. An individual is unlikely to experience a boost from the beverages once their body gets used to them.
While the information provided in this infographic is not new, it does help shed light on why so many studies have cited the health implications of energy drinks.
Still, energy drink consumption is rising, In the US, sales of the beverages increased by 60% between 2008 and 2012.

Energy drinks are particularly popular with children and adolescents. Last year, Medical News Today reported on a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which found that 73% of children consume caffeine on a daily basis - much of which is coming from energy drinks and coffee.
