We all know that the coffee includes a lot of health benefits; however, that is not a case if we drink coffee early in the morning on an empty stomach.
So, that means that the timing is important because its consummation, even if it is decaf, on an empty stomach affects our digestive tract, however, the effects go even deeper.
In our stomach, we have hydrochloric acid which is digesting our food. However, drinking coffee on an empty stomach makes the acid production go into overdrive. If this is happening often, our body may lose interest to produce this acid on its own, thus making the digestion slower.
