DO YOU KNOW WHY COFFEE EMPTIES OUR STOMACH?
Coffee has properties to accelerate the secretion of urine and acts as a laxative i.e. it accelerates stool. Do you know why?
Coffee’s laxative properties are due to caffeine, which stimulates contractions of the muscles in the bowel. Such contractions are similar to those that occur in the gut after eating.
One cup of coffee contains 80-175 milligrams of caffeine, while the same amount of Coca Cola has only 34 milligrams of the stimulant.
This explains why carbonated drinks do not have the same laxatives properties as coffee.
As a result of the artificial sweeteners in coffee gas, bloating and diarrhea may occur.
Dairy products such as milk, sour cream and spreading cream contain lactose – the sugar that can cause diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems in people who do not have lactose tolerance and those who are not as sensitive to milk sugar.
Drink 2 cups of coffee a day if you want to maintain healthy digestion process.
