Coffee and Hydrochloric Acid
If you’re a person who enjoys his coffee early in the morning, on an empty stomach, you should know that this habit stimulates hydrochloric acid production. This is a serious problem, because HCI is produced to digest meals and if your body has to make HCI more often, because you use to drink coffee on an empty stomach, then it may have some difficulty to produce enough HCI in order to deal with a large meal. Also, this can affect protein digestion, due to a lack of hydrochloric acid and undigested protein is linked to a lot of health problems such as IBS, diverticulitis and colon cancer. Some researchers go so far, and they are saying that almost all diseases begin in the gut, so think twice when you want to drink your coffee on empty stomach.
