Coca-Cola: A healthy version? Coca-Cola adds fiber to its classic soft drink

Coca-Cola is a big global brand. Many people love to drink this beverage because its high sugar content is extremely addictive. Coca-Cola has created a “healthier” version of the drink, called Coca-Cola Plus. It is currently only available in Japan. It is a zero-calorie Coke with added fiber, aimed at health-conscious consumers. Because it has added fiber, which aids digestion, many think the drink is healthy.

People believe that adding fiber to junk food will automatically make it healthy, but what people don’t know is that fiber is added to artificial sweeteners, which can wreak havoc on the body. People need 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day, and most people are not getting their daily dose. There are many other healthier options for fiber, such as lentils, broccoli, pears and quinoa. Our daily fiber intake does not need to come from Coca-Cola.

In Costa Rica, psyllium can be found in powder, granule or wafer form and its method of use is orally, either in capsules or added to bread or baked goods. It is often used in the treatment of diarrhea or chronic or habitual constipation in children over six years of age or adults and, for example, when you want to facilitate bowel movements after anal or rectal surgery, hemorrhoids or anal fissures.

Diets rich in fiber have been shown to reduce the risk of colon or rectal cancer. Try to increase the amount of fiber in your diet in a healthy way
