You’re Not Supposed to Drink Coffee First Thing in the Morning
There I said it. I'm not necessarily believing this statement but this is what I read and I'm repeating it so don't shoot the messenger.
Coffee...For most of us it's that first thing we put into our bodies and we feel that it does us good, or at least it keeps us from saying things we shouldn't say first thing in the morning. (If you know what I mean!)
I decided to look into this statement a little further and find out what validity it may or may not have.
In a story from newatlas.com, the headline reads as follows:
New study recommends drinking coffee after breakfast, and not before
Now if you're a coffee drinker this would make you stand swinging and cussing! As you start to settle down and your blood pressure lowers a bit, here's the reasoning behind their statement.
The study behind this story states that a cup of coffee first thing in the morning can impair your body's glucose response. So if you're one that has health conditions that warrant you monitoring your glucose levels, this could be very important. For those of us that don't have to worry so much about our glucose levels, you probably don't have so much to worry about.
The experts say maybe the best thing to do is to have something to eat before we consume the first cup of coffee.
You know your body better than anyone so if the first cup of the morning Joe hasn't presented any problems then you can probably go on with your routine. Now, I'm no doctor but if you feel you experience some problems first thing in the a.m. after that initial cup of coffee, you may want to dig a little deeper to find out why this is happening.
Now, you'll have to excuse me as I trot not only to the bathroom but also to the coffee maker for another cup!
