Coffee is considered one of the most popular drinks around the world, for its special taste and invigorating effect, but is it beneficial to drink coffee in the morning?

Dr. Yekaterina Kashukh, a gastroenterologist, said in an interview with the newspaper “Izvestia”: “Coffee contains caffeine, which is a natural psychological stimulant, which helps cheer up in the morning and stimulates mental and physical activity. Caffeine also prevents the formation of gallstones, strengthens blood vessels, and reduces the risk of Diabetes has also been shown to help overcome depression and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and certain types of cancer, such as skin, breast, and prostate cancer.

According to WHO recommendations, a healthy person can consume no more than 400 mg of caffeine per day (2-4 cups of coffee). We must also take into account that caffeine is found in other drinks, such as tea, cocoa, yerba mate, and others.

According to her, it must be taken into account that caffeine sensitivity varies from person to person. Some people may suffer from headaches, nausea, and rapid heartbeat, even after drinking just one cup of coffee. Therefore, each person can determine the amount of caffeine he can consume experimentally, without forgetting the recommendations of the World Health Organization.

She says: “Many people prefer to drink coffee on an empty stomach. But this drink cannot replace a full breakfast. If a person suffers from digestive problems, drinking coffee in the morning on an empty stomach can increase the annoying symptoms - heartburn.” "So to avoid discomfort, it is best to drink coffee after eating."

The doctor indicates that drinking coffee with milk or low-fat cream is better for the stomach. But we must take into account that milk and cream are a source of cholesterol. Therefore, a small amount of it should be added to coffee. As for coffee with sugar and sweets, it is best to avoid them because they negatively affect fitness and dental health.
