It is better absorbed only when these are kept The tablet should be taken first thing in the morning when you get up, and at least half an hour before you take your first meal, beverage, or other medication of the day. To reduce the risk of irritating the throat or esophagus, take the tablet with a full glass (250 mL) of plain water only. If your normal drinking water is classified as "hard water," it may decrease the absorption of this medication and you should consider taking it with distilled water. After swallowing, do not lie down until 30 minutes have passed and you have eaten your first meal of the day. Do not take this medication at bedtime or before getting up in the morning. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not chew or suck on the tablets.

Hello, ideally the urine pregnancy test should be done after 8 days post missed periods to get a confirmatory result. Till then symptoms may be nausea, vomiting, headache, mil lower abdominal ache and mood swings but these can overlap with the premenstrual symptoms as well so best is to get a urine pregnancy test for confirmation of pregnancy.

There might not be any particular reason for your bleeding. It can also be your usual menstrual cycle. Many times, cycle changes after the girl becomes sexually active. The changes can either lead to earlier menstruation or delayed menstruation. There is nothing to be worried about it.

Hello, the irregularity is also because you must be breast feeding your child which causes increased prolactin levels and hence irregularity. However if pregnancy has been ruled out then you may opt for progesterone only pills for contraception from day 2 of next cycle.

Coffee from ground beans contains 95 to 180 milligrams of caffeine in a tall regular cup while a cup of green tea provides about 44 milligrams caffeine. Coffee has following benefits:

Antioxidant: Coffee is a high source of Antioxidant. Coffee provides 70% of total amount of important antioxidant in diet. Antioxidants in coffee are Polyphenols, chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, Cafestol and Kahweol.

 

Antioxidant in coffee plays following role:

  • Neuro degenerative disease: Coffee works as natural anti aging beverage. Antioxidants protects against Parkinson’s disease, dementia. Coffee acts as natural Alzheimer’s disease treatment and also has protective qualities against Depression in some people.

  • Coffee is effective at “Fighting free radical damage”: Because it increases antioxidant in the blood (Plasma antioxidant capacity).

  • Cancer protection and as an anti inflammatory food: Inflammation which is the root of most diseases is reduced. Coffee lowers oxidative stress because of its ability to induce mRNA and protein expression. Caffeine found in coffee also has an impact on metabolites and lipid fraction that act as a safeguard against some malignant cells by modulating certain detoxifying enzymes.

  • Coffee prevents Cardiovascular disease and improves heart health. Antioxidant cafestol and kahweol are diterpene compounds which have cholesterol –balancing effects of coffee. Coffee intake is associated with lower risks of heart failure and stroke and also reduces the heart arrhythmia.

  • Help to prevent Diabetes: Antioxidant chlorogenic acid reduce the absorption of glucose from sugary or high carbohydrate foods. This could slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream after a meal and be beneficial for preventing insulin resistance, thus help to prevent diabetes.

Disadvantage of Coffee:

  • Effect on Hydrochloric acid: Regular consumption of Coffee effects the availability of HCL in the stomach especially protein based food which passes into the small intestine before being properly broken down . undigested protein results variety of health problem like Bloating and gas, IBS, Diverticulitis and even colon cancer.

  • Ulcers, IBS and Acidity: Regular consumption of Coffee( Caffeine and various acids present in Coffee) irritate the stomach & lining of small intestine which is necessary for H. pylori to take hold initially , due to that Helicobacter pylori bacteria causes Ulcers, gastritis, IBS and Crohn’s disease. It also irritate the lining of small intestine which leads to Abdominal spasm, cramps, and elimination problem due to that diarrhea and constipation occurs.

  • Heart burn problems: Caffeine in Coffee relax the Esophageal sphincter due to that stomach content come back in stomach and burn the delicate lining of esophagus by HCL thus contribute the Acid reflux and Heartburn

  • Coffee as a laxative: coffee stimulates peristalsis thus promote the gastric emptying , whereby the stomach’s contents are quickly passed into the small intestines , before digesting food which makes it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed from your food. It also increases the chances of irritation and inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Effects the Mineral Absorption: In heavy drinkers of coffee Iron absorption in stomach is effected and particularly effects the ability of kidney to retain calcium, magnesium and othe important minerals which plays vital role for good health

  • Acrylamide in coffee: Coffee contains the Acrylamide which is carcinogenic substance (cancer causing)

  • Stress and tension: Excessive consumption of caffeine in coffee release the stress hormones ”Cartisol, Epinephrine an Nor epinephrine” which increases the heart’s rate, blod pressure and tension levels. Stress hormones with a cup of coffee also interferes with the digestive process, caffeine in coffee also interfere with GABA metabolism. Gamma-amino butyric acid is a neurotransmitter involved in regulating mood and stress levels, it also affect the GIT.

“Mood and digestive system are interrelated, thus when you drink a lot of coffee the high levels of caffeine in it negatively affect both of them”.

 

How much coffee is safe to drink:

  • For healthy adult 500 mg. of caffeine /day (approximately 5 cups).

  • For pregnant women 200 mg. /day.

  • Ideally 1-2 cup of coffee /day has no associated negative effect but beneficial for people.

  • If associated with problem of stress a, tension, digestive problem it should be avoided.

 

What is the best time of consumption of coffee :

  • Morning 10 am to noon

  • Evening 2pm to 5pm

  • Early morning stress hormone “Cartisol” level in our body is very high and consuming caffeine when cortisol level are high creates two problems:

  • Caffeine interferes with the body’s production of cortisol which is released in response to stress and low glucose. The body ends up producing less cortisol and depends more on the caffeine to compensate.

  • It increases the person’s tolerance to caffeine because it replaces the natural cortisol – induced boost instead of adding to it.

Thus early morning is the worst time for coffee.
