1. Ease digestion

Scientists and doctors have found that one of the best treatments for gastric phytobezoar, a condition where a person has difficulty with food moving through their digestive tract and suffers stomach blockages, is a glass of Coca-Cola.

The high acidity in the fizzy drink acts like gastric acid and can ease severe abdominal pain, break down the blockages, and get things moving again.

2. Focus your mind

Just like your morning cup of coffee, Coca-Cola offers a good whack of the stimulant caffeine (it’s a caffeinated drink after all).

As the caffeine enters your bloodstream, it can spark increased concentration and mental focus, so if your attention levels are dipping, a mouthful or two of Coke could get you back up to speed. Overdo it though and too much caffeine can leave you feeling jittery and stressed.
