Drinking coffee on an empty stomach is a bad idea

Why drinking coffee on an empty stomach is a really bad idea

Do you sometimes experience acid reflux after drinking coffee? We have an explanation!

For many people, the day starts with a cup of coffee straight after getting up. However, this would be a bad habit! In fact, when consumed on an empty stomach, coffee stimulates the secretion of hydrochloric acid, a substance that helps digest food. Therefore, this acidic substance can cause gastric disorders, such as bloating, heartburn and can also have laxative effects…

In short, so many inconveniences that we would prefer not to experience! This is why it is advisable to drink your first cup of coffee after eating something. Toasts, dried fruits or even pastries if you treat yourself. On the other hand, try to avoid consuming milk, since, as surprising as it may be, the association with coffee is not particularly recommended. In fact, the tannins in coffee coagulate casein, a protein present in cow’s, goat’s and sheep’s milk. Clots could form and slow down digestion…

In short, it is better to eat before drinking your first cup of coffee and opt for plant-based milk to avoid any inconvenience. In addition to these few recommendations, remember that coffee is rich in antioxidants, as well as other compounds and minerals such as magnesium which are excellent for your health!
