Do you ever get a bad feeling in your stomach after drinking too much coffee? We think we have the solution that will ease your tummy woes and get you back to feeling normal again.
Coffee contains many different acids, in particular chlorogenic and quinic acids which are important in creating the astringency flavours and can contain antioxidants, but can have a negative effect on how your gut can feel. At worst these acids can even irritate your stomach lining, particularly on an empty stomach. Added into this is the effect caffeine has on your body, which is to stimulate your nervous system leading to your body producing excess stomach acid, contributing to that sour feeling deep in your abdomen. Anyone who has consumed a lot of coffee all in one sitting will know exactly the sensation I am describing.
We here at R-tea think we have found the answer to this sour feeling. If we have ever over done it on the coffee, then having a cup of our Cool Mint tea immediately after makes us feel significantly better:
