network has been circulating a saying that coke and monosodium glutamate can produce an aphrodisiac effect. It is said that “people who drink this formula will feel hot and excited.” so what is the truth?
before we know the truth, let’s take a look at the ingredient list of these two things. The main ingredients of coke are carbonic acid, sweetener, caramel and some natural flavoring agents. The main substance of monosodium glutamate is sodium glutamate, so the mixture of cola and sodium glutamate (MSG) will not produce chemical changes, nor will it produce new substances. Therefore, it is impossible to bring the “emotional” effect. However, excessive intake of sodium glutamate can cause drowsiness and tachycardia, which is similar to the performance of “emotional upsurge”, so it may be mistaken by netizens as “aphrodisiac effect”.
so those who want to rely on “cola and monosodium glutamate” to urge the mood should not try, because the two substances together will not be aphrodisiac, and may cause harm to the body. Because of the high sugar content of coke, if excessive consumption, easy to cause dental caries, obesity and abnormal blood sugar, in addition, coke also contains phosphoric acid, easy to cause calcium loss. Monosodium glutamate is sodium glutamate. A spoonful of monosodium glutamate is equivalent to a third of a teaspoon of salt. Salt will raise blood pressure and cause calcium loss. Eating both of them at the same time will cause excessive intake of sugar and salt, which will have adverse effects on the body.
