Risk of diabetes, obesity and other health problems also increases due to excessive intake of sugary beverages or soda as per the researchers. Drinking more than 355ml sugary beverages or carbonated drink may disturb your normal balance and lead to high blood presser.
Your blood salt levels and blood vessel tone is affected by the unnecessary consumption of sugar, according to journal Hypertension study of UK and US researchers. However, non-sugar sweetened diet drink does not lead to the risk of high blood presser.
The researchers have made research on the UK and US people between the age group of 40-59. People were requested to give answer of what they had eaten or drunk in the past 24 hours. Researchers tested the urine and blood pressure report of the participants. The researchers also studied the lifestyle of all participants.
Researchers concluded that higher systolic blood pressure and diastolic can be found 1.6 and 0.8 points respectively in the participants, who consumed more sugar-sweetened beverages on daily basis. Systolic blood pressure in a reading of 120/80; means the top 120 number measures maximum pressure of heart beats and the 80 number measures minimum pressure.
Approximately 397 additional calories was founded in those people, who drunk more than one sugar-sweetened beverages per day than those who didn’t drink sugary beverages. Two factors such as overweight and less healthy diet were founded in the people, who drunk too much sugar-sweetened beverages. However, weight and height are adjustable factors and blood pressure is major factor to be considered.
Diet soda is not responsible for blood presser level but the people who consumed diet pop, experienced lower levels of physical activity and higher body mass index than those who not consume, as per latest study of Ian Brown's team of Imperial College London. You can drink water and 100% fruit juices as an alternative to sugary drinks. However, 100% juice also has high calorie and sugar therefore should be restricted to one serving per day, as per Brown.
According to American Heart Association, people should intake maximum 355ml cans of soda per week. More risk of blood presser is associated with people who intakes sugary drink as well as higher salt.
