Coffee in the morning wakes us up and gets our metabolism going! This also applies to our digestive system. There can be several reasons for this.
For example, coffee increases the release of the digestive hormone cholecystokinin. Cholecystokinin ensures that bile is produced and other important digestive hormones are released.
Another effect is that we have to go to the toilet more often. This is because the caffeine it contains briefly inhibits the reabsorption of water from the urine into the kidneys.
However, the assumption that coffee withdraws liquid from our body is now considered to be disproved for “normal” consumption of 3-4 cups per day.
Other effects of coffee in our body:
Coffee increases stomach acid production! This is due to the hormone gastrin. After food enters the stomach, it is digested and causes muscle contractions in the stomach wall. Caffeine stimulates the release of gastrin, causing food to break down faster in the stomach.
Makes you more focused! Because caffeine in it causes our brain to circulate more quickly, this not only improves our concentration but also improves our reaction time and receptiveness.
Defends our cells! It contains antioxidants, including polyphenols such as chlorogenic acid and flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventive properties. Melanoidin is produced during the roasting process of coffee and is said to have antioxidant properties.
Coffee has individual effect:
By the way, everyone reacts differently: for some, one cup of coffee, or even a small espresso, is sufficient, and the sprint to the restroom is programmed. Others consume several cups of coffee throughout the day with no ill effects on their digestion.
A habituation effect often occurs over time, which can delay or weaken the effect of coffee. The human psyche can also have an impact.
- If you don’t drink coffee, it’s best to start slowly to see how your body reacts.
- Too much of any one thing can have an adverse effect on your digestion. This is true with food, so being aware of how much you eat at any given time will have a positive impact on your digestive system.
Are coffee poops healthy?
Coffee has been shown to increase stomach acid production, resulting in the production of gas in the stomach and intestines. If not well-digested food enters the large intestine, this can lead to painful gas.
Why does coffee upset my stomach?
