Those suffering from stomach blockages may not have to look any further than their local grocery store for a cure, as Coca-Cola has been discovered to be a great cure for stomach blockages.

A new study claims that, due to its bubbles and acidity, Coca-Cola is a great way to alleviate stomach blockages.

Researchers at the Medical School of Athens University studied already published academic papers that analyzed 46 patients with the condition known as gastric phytobezoar.

The patients were treated with Coca-Cola in hospitals over the past 10 years.

A phytobezoar is a stomach blockage, which, unless it is removed or destroyed, can lead to a bowel obstruction.

This will provide an alternative treatment for those who don’t want to opt for the surgery or the non-surgical laser procedure currently used to treat it.

The success rate is so great for Coca-Cola — 90 percent — that doctors now routinely administer the soda as treatment.

Coca-cola has an acidity rating of 2.6 on the pH scale because it contains both carbonic and phosphoric acid.

Because of its acidity, its chemistry is similar to gastric acid, which digests fibers, while the bubbles accelerate the process, say researchers.

Out of the 46 patients given Coca-Cola, 50 experienced a complete curing of their stomach blockage, 19 needed non-invasive treatments, and 4 needed full surgery. Those results translate as a 91.3 percent success rating.

“Coca-Cola administration is a cheap, easy-to-perform and safe procedure that can be accomplished at any endoscopy unit,” researchers told the journal Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics. “It resembles gastric acid, which is thought to be important for fiber digestion. In addition the bubbles enhance the dissolving mechanism.”
