Drinking coffee is a healthy thing. However, on the other hand drinking coffee can be harmful for patients with mag sickness. Why is that? Let’s look at the explanation here.
You often sick mag? If so, start to think twice before consuming coffee. Impact of coffee for patients with mag can be full of stomach, twisted, nauseous, and weak.
Mag generally occurs due to the process of gastric infection by Helicobacter pylori bacteria. It may also be due to excessive stomach acid production, which can be affected by several factors-including drinks such as coffee.
Then, how the coffee mechanism can worsen the stomach condition of patients with mag?
- Caffeine can increase the stress hormone (cortisol). Caffeine content in coffee can cause increased levels of stress hormones in the body. As a result the immune system can decrease.
When this happens, Helicobacter pylori bacteria can easily attack the gastric mucosal lining, and can form ulcers or wounds that aggravate the condition of the mag.
- Caffeine will raise the hormone adrenaline. Caffeine contained in coffee raises the hormone epinephrine (known as adrenaline) and norepinephrine. This hormone increases blood pressure and heart rate frequency.
When this happens, the flow of blood leading to the digestive system can be reduced, thus inhibiting the digestive process of food which also causes the gastric mucosa exposed longer with stomach acid. Ultimately, the gastric mucosal health of the mag sufferers are worse.
- Coffee contains high levels of acidic substances. Coffee has a very high content of acidic substances that can stimulate the production of stomach acid in excess. This can worsen the stomach conditions of patients with mag.
After knowing the effect of consuming coffee on stomach health, do you still want to drink coffee? For patients with mag, you should avoid drinking coffee.
If you really want to drink coffee, make sure not to cram it on an empty stomach. Limit also the consumption, about 100-200 mg of caffeine in a day is the right amount. It is hoped that your mag will not relapse if you follow those rules.
