Hello socialites!!!

Let us start by questioning today. Are you the kind of person whose kitchen shelves are stocked up with beer and sodas? And the one who is an extreme panache of beverages???

If yes, I can sense that your breakfast, lunch, dinner or any other craving moment starts with at least one of the beverages. But know what, you should actually say no to beer, ice tea, coke or 7up on an empty stomach. This article will provide you with all the reasons for which people should not consume sodas or alcohol on an empty stomach. You will also come to know what happens when you consume beer and other beverages on an empty stomach. So gear up babies! It is time to explore.

How is beer, ice tea, coke or 7up similar to each other? 

When we think of beer, ice tea, coke or 7up, we tend to imagine contrastingly different situations for each one of them regarding when we will prefer consuming them or with the person you prefer to consume them. Beer implies friends and party, ice tea is somewhat formal, coke for family and 7ups for the denarians. Agree? 

Thinking about this you might hanker about how beer, ice tea, coke or 7up are similar to each other. 

The base on which all the four can be categorized on the same platform is the chemical nature of each of them. All the four are acidic in nature and to be better knowledged you can also check the pH values of the four. 

Some other combining factors are, all of them are carbonated beverages, they contain alcohol (although in different ratios), they contain sweeteners and natural or artificial flavoring elements.

With all the above, I hope your issue of ‘How is beer, ice tea, coke or 7up similar to each other?’ is very much clarified.

Reasons for which people should not consume sodas or alcohol on an empty stomach

If you are a beverage freak, this is going to be really tough for you but after going through the reasons for which people should not consume sodas or alcohol in an empty stomach you will be happy to say no to beer, ice tea, coke or 7up in an empty stomach.

Do you know what happens when you consume beer and other beverages on an empty stomach? One word retaliation is you get ‘sabotaged’.

The prime reason why it is advised not to consume alcohol and other beverages such as cold drinks or ice tea in an empty stomach is to remain healthy. You can approach any health advisor, they will tell you to have natural juices but not a cold drink. 

Drinking ice tea in an empty stomach is not advisable because of the chances of forming acidity. With this, you may also trigger your immune to slow down the process of your digestive system.  

One more weighted reason is, no cold-drink provides you any health benefits.

When you consume any carbonated drink without any food in your stomach, they gain the capacity to destroy the mucus membranes which in turn reduces the blood supply to your stomach.

Why is an empty stomach beer a disaster?

The severity of alcohol is determined by various factors that are unique to each one of us. When your body absorbs alcohol, you get drunk and are in the position of getting the worst affected. The small intestines absorb alcohol very quickly, and when consumed on an empty stomach, alcohol passes directly to the small intestines, where most of it gets absorbed by the bloodstreams. You can interpret it like, the longer your stomach holds alcohol, the slower is the absorption and its effects. 

To do this, the only way is to eat food before you drink. The intensity of the effects is minimized by the food that lowers the passage of alcohol to the small intestines. When you consume beer on an empty stomach, your hangover lasts longer and you get more affected. These are the reasons why the combination of an empty stomach and beer is a disaster. 

With all the above I am hopeful to have been able to make you understand and say no to beer, ice tea, coke or 7up on an empty stomach.
