The first thing most people do when they wake up is drink a cup of coffee. Even if you drink it, your mind will not feel calm. Experts say that drinking coffee early in the morning has some benefits as well as some disadvantages. Research has been going on for decades. Research is being done on the effects of caffeine and chlorogenic acid on the body. According to an article published in the journal Planta Medica in 2017, moderate consumption of 3 to 4 cups of coffee per day does not pose any health risks. But those who have some problems are warned that they will have to face problems if they take coffee in the morning.
How does coffee affect digestion?
All types of coffee are not the same. Its effects vary depending on the type of coffee. Consider instant, decaffeinated, half-caffeinated, etc. Also, how you take coffee, what you use with milk, cream, and sugar should also be taken into account to see how it is digested. It may not harm some people. But in some people, stomach acid production causes problems like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and heartburn. Research is inconclusive on the effects of coffee on GERD sufferers. However, according to a study published in 2020, GERD symptoms were further aggravated by consumption of coffee, tea, and soda. If you experience heartburn/ GERD symptoms after drinking coffee early in the morning, experts suggest trying to reduce them. If you have such problems, it is better to stay away from coffee.
Caffeine takes effect 30 minutes after it enters the body. According to a Planta Medica review, caffeine is absorbed through the stomach and small intestine in about 45 minutes. It should be observed how the situation will be immediately after drinking coffee. Some people immediately feel upset in their stomach and go to the bathroom. Some people feel energetic after drinking coffee. Drinking coffee on an empty stomach may not cause any harm in healthy people. If you feel troubled, experts suggest that there will be no problems if you have a snack before coffee and then choose coffee. Do not take more than 4 cups of coffee per day.
