The effect of drinking coffee is more than just making a literate eye. We know that caffeine in coffee is a mild diuretic. That is, drinking coffee makes the body release more fluid than usual (read: back and forth urinating).
Well, for some people - more precisely about 30 percent of humans on earth - drinking coffee always makes them feel dying of defecation. It might seem implausible that the effect of drinking coffee, which is considered a diuretic (or dehydrating) drink, can result in bowel movements. And besides, dehydration is a common cause of constipation.
If you are one of those people who go back and forth to CHAPTER as the effect of drinking coffee, you might be wondering what is the reason behind this one universe secret.
Effect of drinking coffee on the digestive system
According to scientists, chemical compounds in coffee can stimulate the distal intestine. Chemical compounds in coffee stimulate muscle contractions in the large intestine that are similar to the stomach contractions you experience after eating - to help push waste out of your body faster. But it is still unclear which chemical compounds (from hundreds of active chemicals in coffee) are responsible for this stimulation.
Coffee can also trigger the release of gastrin, a hormone produced in the stomach and is known to increase motor activity in the large intestine, which will accelerate bowel movements. Because the area of this large intestine is closest to the rectum, researchers concluded that increased activity there was responsible for the laxative effect of coffee.
In addition, the acidic nature of coffee causes an increase in stomach acid production and bile acids in the body. The liver makes bile and stores it in the gallbladder, and coffee can make the gallbladder release bile into the intestine, causing diarrhea. It could be, an increase in acidity in the body as a whole makes the stomach throw the waste out faster than usual.
Even more surprising, the effect of drinking decaf (decaffeinated coffee) also shows a dull defecation reaction. This led the researchers to conclude that the cause of defecation after drinking coffee did not come from caffeine, but there were other substances in coffee that were responsible for the reputation of this bitter black drink as a laxative.
Want to defecate after drinking coffee? Maybe it's because of the sugar and creamer
A 2003 study published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, reported by Live Science found that the body's strong resistance to coffee diuretic properties often appears in individuals who regularly consume coffee. But, regardless of the coffee itself, if you add sweeteners, milk products, or other non-dairy toppings to your coffee cup, this can put additional pressure on the body's digestive system.
Artificial sweeteners in coffee mixtures can cause bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Dairy products such as milk, whip cream, and /or creams contain sugars called lactose. Lactose can trigger diarrhea and other digestive complaints for people who have lactose intolerance. Even among those who do not have this condition, the ability to digest lactose tends to decrease with age - which makes them more susceptible to back and forth as an effect of drinking coffee.
