Have you ever wondered why coffee makes you go really fast to the restroom?
What’s in it?
And then after the second coffee or the third! You will be visiting the rest room many times for sure.
It is thought that the caffeine in the coffee is responsible for the bowel movement. The American Chemical Society released a video where they say it is not yet clear how exactly does the morning coffee make people poop. Other beverages contain caffeine, but they do not have the same effect on the intestine.
It is probably an individual reaction, maybe depending on the digestive system and the properties of the coffee itself.
Coffee is an acidic drink. Therefore it triggers higher acid secretion in your stomach and this makes your stomach pour content faster in the intestine. Certain hormones that affect bowel movement are also triggered by coffee. It remains unclear though, which of the 1000 and more ingredients cause the pooping affect.
If your morning coffee makes you “GO”, then you are a part of those 3 out of 10 people that are affected. If this makes you feel unique among coffee consumers, it’s OK according to experts.
