  1. If you are having food every day, should you stop driving a car?
    Don’t mix things that make no sense. Do what you want. Coffee is at least tasty, probiotics are mostly a waste of money.

  2. It depends on why you are taking probiotics in the first place.
    The natural way to improve your gut flora with good bacteria would be to eat a diet that is very heavily biased to vegetables especially the green leafy variety. You may want to do this because you are suffering from leaky gut or you have taken a recent course of antibiotics.
    Coffee is not necessarily bad but it is acidic. The aim of most diets that are recommended for healing the gut have the intention of making the body more alkaline so you might want to avoid coffee or limit your intake.
    Limiting sugar, artificial sweeteners and processed foods would probably be a better option.

  3. I don’t see any reason to, but do make sure you’re providing ample fiber for your gut microbiome (for which fiber is food): How probiotics and prebiotics team up in your gut .

    Heat will kill most types of probiotic bacteria . That means drinking your coffee with your probiotics is not a good idea. Take them with water before drinking your coffee.
    Research suggests that coffee can have a beneficial impact on your gut bacteria by increasing the diversity of microbes in your gut , so you can keep drinking your two coffees each day.
    Many health problems appear to be associated with the gut microbiota composition including :
    inflammatory bowel disease
    non-alcoholic liver steatosis (fatty liver (steatosis) – one of the most common causes of liver disease in the United States
    cardiovascular disease
    Researchers have reported that coffee has beneficial effects on these diseases. However, more research is needed to determine how coffee consumption affects gut microbiota composition and health .

  5. Yes. The probiotics will be more effective that way. Apart from the various effects of drinking coffee regularly, it being acidic can kill bacteria which includes the good bacteria and also stimulates the intestine like a laxative and can cause it to be empty. Drinking coffee should be a recreation rather than a habit for health reasons.

  6. I wouldn’t take them at the same time, since probiotics are sensitive to acid. Take them with a meal to increase the absorption. But coffee an hour or more away from the probiotics should be fine.
