Many people around the world drink coffee early in the morning – immediately after waking up. Well, I know that I do! Yes, I drink coffee every day! Coffee is good for the human body! But, the experts warn that you shouldn’t drink it on empty stomach, especially in the morning. Take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
The experts WARN – if you drink a cup of black coffee early in the morning, on an empty stomach, it will increase the amount of hydrochloric acid inside your digestive tract. Well, ladies and gentlemen, this means that if you suffer from gastritis, then you’ve probably felt this. This hydrochloric acid is actually bad for the food in your stomach.
When you eat something heavy, this acid can cause some digestive problems, because it would cause a difficult digestion of proteins. And when protein isn’t fully decomposed and absorbed, it can lead to other digestive issues, such as: bloating, inflammation of the bowel, irritation and might cause a colon cancer.
Coffee will increase the levels of cortisol and the body needs a long time to balance them to its normal state. Cortisol is a hormone that controls our biological clock and the ability to stay awake. You should also know that the consumption on an empty stomach will increase the levels of acid in the stomach – which causes vomiting and bloating.
As we mentioned before, drinking coffee on empty stomach, immediately after waking up can be really bad for you. This means that you should have a breakfast before drinking your morning coffee. But, if you can’t eat breakfast and you can’t start your day without a cup of coffee – then you should add some milk or butter in your coffee. It will reduce its harmful effects.
