Drink Soy Sauce 1 Shot
Doc I want to ask, what are the positive and negative impacts on the body if you drink as much soy sauce as one shot?
Thank you for the question.
Until now there have been no studies that examined the positive effects of consuming soy sauce by drinking it even though only at the dose of one shot, and the practice of drinking soy sauce is not normal even from the perspective of traditional medicine.
Conversely, drinking soy sauce actually has a greater negative impact than the positive impact. Basically, soy sauce has a very high salt content, which is around 800-900 mg per one tablespoon, or around 3000-3600 mg per one shot glass. In large quantities, too high levels of salt are consumed by the body can cause hypernatremia, so the body will retain the fluid in it to maintain the body's fluid and electrolyte balance which is disturbed by high sodium concentrations in the blood due to high salt consumption.
At high quantities or on frequent consumption of drinking, soy sauce will cause an increase in blood pressure, increase kidney function, and cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, tremor or trembling in muscles, convulsions, swelling in the body, and in cases will further lead to commas. So, it is not recommended to drink soy sauce.
Hopefully this information can be useful.
