The effects of drinking coffee on an empty stomach


When it reaches the digestive system, caffeine stimulates acid secretion in the stomach, causing gastric irritation. Coffee also stimulates contractions of the intestine and the gall bladder, so it is very effective after lunch to ensure proper digestion. However, this drink is not recommended for people suffering from stomach ulcers. However, on an empty stomach coffee stimulates the secretion of hydrochloric acid, which is used to break down food. When the stomach is empty, this action is harmed because they ingested after the secretion of this acid.

Therefore, foods (especially proteins) will get stuck in the stomach, causing bloating, inflammation or irritation of the intestines. In addition, when drunk immediately after waking, coffee increases the level of cortisol which may disrupt your vigilance and your biological clock, while creating a sense of stress. And when this habit is repeated every day, serious disorders can manifest as colon carcinoma (malignant tumor).
