Coca-Cola was originally one of hundreds of coca-based medicines that claimed benefits to health; in Coca-Cola's case it claimed to alleviate headaches and to be a "brain and nerve tonic". Coca leaves were used in its preparation, and the small amounts of cocaine provided a buzz to drinkers. In 1903 Coca-Cola removed cocaine from the formula, started using caffeine as the buzz-giving element, and started dropping all the medicinal claims.
