I like to drink coffee everyday in the morning. So, which coffee is better coffee or black coffee? Please advise.
1. Black coffee for weight loss If you are looking to lose weight, then you should definitely have black coffee as it has comparatively lower calories than coffee with milk and sugar. A cup of black coffee has just 4.7 calories while a cuppa prepared with milk and sugar has 56.6 calories. 2. Coffee with milk and sugar after evening Black coffee will energize you and give you more mental clarity than normal coffee as there is no milk or cream to slow down it’s effects. So drinking it after evening might keep you wide awake until late into the night which will disrupt your circadian rhythm. Taking the extra 50 calories instead would be healthier. If you already have issues with sleep, then don’t have coffee at all after sunset. Here are some tips to sleep like a baby. Alternatively, if you have something important to do and are feeling sleepy, then you should go for a black coffee. 3. Coffee with milk and sugar if you have acidity In case you have aciditiy, you should avoid having coffee (especially black coffee) as it has a very high pH. Also, having concentrated coffee can increase the concentration of acid in your urine. So make sure you have enough water or foods like cucumber to neutralize its effect.

How Much Coffee Is Too Much For The Heart?

Coffee is the boost up drink for many people. It brings freshness and stimulant to the day. Various studies show that coffee drinkers have a useful lifespan; it results in better concentration and productivity. Drinking coffee has many health benefits. But too much of anything is harmful to health. Too much caffeine can affect your health and disturb your bowel system.

What Happens When You Drink Too Much Coffee?

Most coffee is safe for adults. But if you are a heavy coffee drinker and your daily quota pass 6 cups a day, then you can be of risk to caffeinism. The prominent symptoms are anxiety and agitation. The caffeine in the coffee disturbs your sleep pattern and leads to insomnia and nervousness.

Caffeine intake, in the long run, may result in depression, high blood sugar levels, early menopause, and many more. It is essential that you keep a check on your coffee intake and does not make it an addiction.

Coffee and Your Digestion

Coffee and Your Digestion

The quote 'Good day starts with coffee' suits a lot of people who love nothing more than a cup of coffee every morning. However, your morning tryst with a cup of coffee might not be a very healthy habit. Believe it or not, addiction to caffeine (in the form of coffee) is as harmful as addiction to any other drug. In fact, caffeine is a legal drug that slowly and gradually damages your gastrointestinal tract. Here are the negative effects of coffee on your digestive system:

  1. Increases Acidity: Coffee is known to contain different kinds of oils, acids and caffeine. These compounds have an adverse impact on the digestive system. The stomach and intestinal linings get damaged due to the over-consumption of these compounds in the form of coffee. Moreover, as you take coffee, your stomach produces more hydrochloric acid for digestion. This causes acidity and hampers the HCL levels altogether. When we take coffee regularly for years in empty stomach, our body's capacity of producing proper amounts of HCL gets hampered. Often, HCL production gets reduced as well. This leads to indigestion of other food items and effects flatulence and produces unwanted gases due to the improper breaking of proteins and fats by the body.
  2. Ulcers and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Doctors believe that coffee acts as an irritant for patients of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), gastritis, Crohn's disease, colitis and ulcers. Coffee is responsible for the irritation of the lining of stomach and intestine. It is also noticed that certain enzymes present in the coffee beans are also harmful to the gastrointestinal tract.
  3. Heartburn: Coffee is responsible for relaxing the esophageal sphincter muscle. The relaxation of this muscle hinders the process of digestion and causes acid-reflux, resulting in heartburn. It is known to have compounds that have diuretic, laxative and mineral blocking effects on the body.
  4. Laxative Effects: Coffee stimulates the process of peristalsis or movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract. The peristalsis starts immediately after food is swallowed by the individual. The intake of coffee catalyzes peristalsis and consequently leads to emptying of the stomach even before the food is digested properly. The semi-digested food is sent to the intestine too early, causing injury to the intestine and hampering the absorption of nutrients.
  5. Affects absorption of minerals: Caffeine reduces the ability of the stomach to absorb iron and also hinders the absorption of minerals like calcium, zinc and magnesium by the kidney. All these minerals help in digestion at different points and regulate the bowel movement.

Coffee is known to have benefits like reduction of constipation and sugar absorption. But, it also interferes with the smooth functioning of the digestive system. It has a tendency to increase stomach aches, disturb the fluid balance and the overall process of digestion. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

Milk Coffee Vs Black Coffee - Which Is Better?

Milk Coffee Vs Black Coffee - Which Is Better?

Coffee is loaded with beneficial nutrients and anti-oxidants that can improve your health. Despite the myriad varieties coffee is usually consumed in, black coffee and milk coffee seem to interest the largest audience. The comparison between the two can come to an end, if you know what exactly you are looking for:

  1. For weight lossIf you want to shed a few kilos, you can add black coffee to your diet plan due to its low calorie content than the milk alternative. A cup of black coffee contains 20 kilo calories while a cuppa prepared with milk and sugar has about 60 kilo calories. Caffeine also increases metabolism in the body that may help you in burning more calories.
  2. To reduce the risk of diabetesCoffee intake lowers your blood sugar level and in turn reducing your risk for diabetes. Moreover, the nutrients in coffee help your body use insulin, a hormone essential to store and use sugar that is delivered by your food. Those who drink considerable amounts of either regular or decaffeinated coffee could less likely to develop diabetes as compared to those who drink little or no coffee. This relationship between substantial coffee intake and diabetes suggests that each cup of coffee that you drink reduces your risk of developing diabetes by 7 per cent, if taken regularly.
  3. For a smarter you: The stimulant called caffeine is the world's most frequently consumed psychoactive ingredient. Caffeine is absorbed into your bloodstream and then travels into the brain where it blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter known as Adenosine. This increases the amounts of other neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine, leading to an enhanced firing of neurons. Coffee improves your brain function including memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general cognitive function.

Regular coffee with milk and sugar

Although it is not entirely healthy to take added sugar and milk (Basically, roughly three times the calorie content of black coffee), you can drink a cup of milk coffee per day. If you are a caffeine addict and want to cut down your coffee intake, you should consider drinking cafe latte rather than an Americano to decrease caffeine content and increase protein content by adding milk. Besides, drinking your coffee black, post evening keeps you wide awake also disrupting your circadian rhythm. You might want to sip on thick, milky coffee on such occasions. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Now a days green coffee is in trend to reduce weight is this possible. How to take these coffee seeds.
Hye, Thanks for your query. First of all no food will work in isolation in weight/fat loss. It's a balanced diet that is important to fat loss. Remedies like green coffee don't help weight loss. They help replace unhealthy drinks and act as a detox which definitely will help better metabolism. This will aid in your efforts to lose weight bit not in isolation. You have to eat the right foods at the right time. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed.                        Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing.     It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called singular remedies will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, have your green coffee but accompany it with good diet, exercise and sleep to see result.

There is no fixed rule to take coffee. It is good stimulant for brain but it decreases appetite so avoid taking coffee before meals. 1 cup in a day is sufficient.
