Why Does Coffee Make You Poop?

The Oily Guru

Many people love their morning cup of joe.

Not only is this caffeine-fueled beverage a great pick-me-up, it’s also loaded with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients (1).

What’s more, some people find it can jump-start the other end of their body.

In fact, one study found that 29% of participants needed to use the bathroom within twenty minutes of drinking a cup of coffee (2).

This article helps explain why coffee can make you poop.

It was initially believed that the caffeine in coffee makes you poop.

However, studies show that decaf can also do the trick. This means there must be other factors at work (6).

Chlorogenic acids and N-alkanoyl-5-hydroxytryptamides are both compounds of interest.

Studies have found that they can stimulate the production of stomach acid. Stomach acid helps churn food and move it quickly through the gut (78).

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
