Summary of “Does Drinking Coffee Affect Your Gut Health? Here’s What The Research Shows”

If you have a leaky gut, perhaps you’ve wondered if coffee affects your gut health.
“Because of coffee’s acidity, it can adversely affect the lining of your stomach and intestines. If you drink a lot of coffee over an extended period, it will worsen any existing conditions you may have. In addition, it can lead to gastritis and ulcers,” New York City-based Gastroenterologist Dr. Shawn Khodadadian said on the Manhattan Gastroenterology website.
Basically, if you already have gut problems, coffee isn’t doing you any favors.
A 2016 study found that people who regularly drink wine and coffee have more diverse gut microbiome, which is a good thing, Medical Daily reported.
So is coffee good or bad? It actually depends on your individual gut health.
While an all-coffee diet is definitely bad, if your gut is healthy and coffee is part of a diverse array of food and drink you’re putting in your body, your coffee habit is probably totally fine.
If coffee makes your gut feel bad, it’s probably best to stop drinking it.
If you’re not sure whether or not coffee is causing your gut distress, conduct a little experiment to see if you feel better going java free.
