Does Cold Drink Help Digestion?
The use of cold drinks has become an essential part of any feast. Majority of people believe that it helps in digestion of food. This is the reason why people organize these drinks on Bakra Eid.
Let’s examine how much truth there is in this.
Cold drinks usually contain water, lots of sugar, soda, carbon dioxide gas, artificial colors, preservatives and caffeine. It does not contain any digestive enzymes. None of these ingredients are known to speed up digestion. Yes, it has many disadvantages, such as the hard coating of the tooth (tooth enamel) is susceptible to breakage, the pain of the heartburn patient can increase. Excess sugar can be a major cause of obesity. It can lead to bone weakness. Due to the high caffeine content in some cold drinks, people can become addicted to it.
One thing that people probably think of it as a digestive aid is the carbon dioxide gas it contains. It is a liquid when mixed into drinks, but at body temperature it becomes a gas, causing the drinker to belch and think that he has digested food. . Although this is just a myth, the reality is the opposite. Instead of digestion, it causes problems for the stomach.
If you use these cold drinks in food to make food palatable, then it is a different matter, but you must take into account their harmful effects, but if you take them to help digestion, then you must think before using them.
