Do you start your day with a cup of tea or coffee as soon as you get up in the morning? I daily need that kick of tea or coffee to get set and go. Morning caffeine feels somewhat cleansing too. A few minutes after having a cup of tea, I always need a biological break. Who won’t like to begin a new day feeling light and clean?
A cup of tea in a beautiful morning seems like a bliss always. I felt my tea gave me an instant shot of energy and I feel like the winner of this world. Frankly speaking, we Indians especially of our generation can’t handle constipation.
While I was almost addicted to my morning cuppa, I realized that after a few hours, I begin to feel all my energy levels going down and finally vanished. I could not understand what was happening. Then, I decided to try something so I left my morning tea and had half a liter of water instead. I made it a habit to enjoy looking at the clear sky munching on almonds. Lo and behold, I felt a difference! My energy levels were suddenly stabilized. It did not change or go down. No prizes for guessing, that it was because of no tea in the morning. 😀
That made me research how coffee or tea affects an empty stomach. That made this post possible here today…
Is Coffee Or Tea, Your First Thing In The Morning…
Coffee gives an instant shot of energy. In fact, Coffee stimulates adrenals and creates an illusion of energy. You might feel hyperactive until some time. When the illusion of energy vanishes, you tend to collapse or feel weak. Coffee contains caffeine and volatile oils which can harm your stomach and intestines. Our stomach produces hydrochloric acid in huge amounts when you drink it. The production of this acid increases if you drink coffee on an empty stomach.
Tea contains less caffeine than coffee but since I don’t drink coffee, the caffeine in tea is enough for me to realize the effects of caffeine on empty stomach. Caffeine affects an empty stomach a lot more than a nourished stomach. So if Is Coffee Or Tea, Your First Thing In The Morning
Hence, the morning is the worst time for drinking tea or coffee. When you wake up, drink 2 glasses of water. Have almonds and walnuts soaked overnight? After breakfast, enjoy your cup of tea or coffee :)!
