Morning Coffee May Be Harmful If Taken With An Empty Stomach
It Can Cause Gastric Issues, Headaches, And Increase Anxiety And High Blood Pressure
Morning coffee helps with a morning boost. Besides increasing alertness, improving the mood, and decreasing fatigue, it also helps with cardiovascular disease, and decreases the risk for type-2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s. However, it might have negative effects if drinking it with an empty stomach because it might increase the level of stomach acid. It can also exacerbate other gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcers, nausea, and heartburn. On the other side, studies have shown that, for some people, coffee can result in stomach issues due to caffeine sensitivity, which is unrelated to an empty or full stomach. Another negative effect is the increase of cortisol levels, a hormone that regulates blood pressure, blood sugar levels and metabolism. However, it is also related to stressful events, and, in the case of chronic stress, excessive cortisol will have negative effects on the body, such as headaches and an increase in high blood pressure.
