When i drink coffee?!

Question: When i drink coffee!?
i need to know why anytime i drink coffee it makes me run to the bathroom to poop!.!.!.its like a laxitiveWww@FoodAQ@Com

"Caffeine relaxes the internal anal sphincter muscles and thus should be avoided by those with fecal incontinence!." - Wikipedia

also I'd like to note that my psychology professor said caffeine acts as a minor laxatative as well!. For me, I would usually eat some sort of bread or pastry with my coffee and it helped ease my stomach!. Now after a couple years of drinking it every day (yikes!) it doesn't do much to me if I drink it plain!. Hope that helps!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well that is a crappy thing to have happen to you!.


I cannot say about #2 but #1 I would be able to tell you!. First of all the water is seperated from the drinks we have first and used right away!. Caffeine takes more water to process than a caffeinated beverage contains!. So it actually dehydrates us!. The water used to process the caffeine will leave our system rather quickly!. Therefore you will need to do #1 much sooner after having a caffeinated drink than you would a non caffeinated one!.

As far as your issue goes maybe one of the ingredients in coffee does not agree with you!. We are all different and react differently!. Just because certain ingredients normally have specific uses and affects on most people does not mean it will be the same for all people!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The caffeine in coffee acts as a bowel stimulant, especially when it's hot!. You'll most likely feel its effects if you drink coffee on an empty stomach, as many of us do in the morning!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Coffee is a natural mild laxative and diuretic!. It has greater affects on some people than others!.!.try a weaker coffee or decaffeinated:-)Www@FoodAQ@Com
