It is indisputable that coffee is an important source of antioxidants with proven efficacy in the prevention of some malignant diseases, such as cancer of the colon.
The antioxidant properties of the coffee are a result of the chlorine genic acid, which is also located in fruits.
Experts agree on these properties, but the impact of coffee can be very negative especially coffee drink on an empty stomach.
Namely, one cup of pure black coffee on an empty stomach stimulates the secretion of the hydrochloric acid in the digestive tract, which often people that are prone to gastritis quickly feel it.
Not even those with completely healthy stomach are spared because hydrochloric acid is used for the decomposition of the food, and the digestive disturbances show up in the heavy meals especially difficult decomposition of proteins.
Proteins that remain incompletely broken down in the body can cause numerous health problems, such as bloating, irritation or inflammation of the intestines, and in the worst case even cancer of the intestines.
According a number of attached researches it is concluded that coffee should be consumed one hour after waking up, after we ate at least one piece of bread.
Coffee should not be consumed immediately after waking up because that way, the level of the cortisol in the body is rapidly increasing, so it takes time for the level to be stabilized.
Cortisol is responsible for control of the biological clock and promoting wakefulness. So, a cup of coffee on an empty stomach can cause increased acid, bloating, and even vomiting.
If your habits do not allow you to eat breakfast in the morning after waking up, and you can’t start your day without a morning coffee, at least put a little milk or butter to alleviate.
