Even though Sprite has none of the negative effects of other sodas on the body and has significantly fewer components, it is still best to drink it in moderation. carbonated water, maize syrup, citric acid, natural flavors, sodium citrate, and sodium benzoate are the ingredients in Sprite. It is crucial to be aware of the reasons why a few of these components might be harmful to your health.
Sprite contains high fructose corn syrup, a processed sugar that has been linked to a variety of health problems when consumed in large quantities, including diabetes, obesity, gout, and colon cancer. When tested on laboratory animals, tumors developed. Sprite’s signature sour flavor comes from citric acid, a flavor enhancer. A root canal may be necessary if you regularly consume citric acid in large quantities.
The preservative sodium benzoate, which is derived from petroleum, is also a major cause for alarm. In addition to causing hives and oral discomfort, the preservative has been linked to DNA damage in animal studies. Furthermore, several neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, have been related to DNA damage. Keep in mind that this only becomes a problem if you regularly consume large quantities of Sprite.
One of the advantages of Sprite is that it contains carbonated water. It is soothing to the stomach and hydrates you at the same time. Perhaps this is why your parents gave you a carbonated drink whenever you felt nauseous.
