  1. Is it good or bad to drink coffee in the morning once you get up?

    Coffee is a caffeinated beverage made from seeds from the coffee plant. Coffee plants are typically grown in tropical climates close to the equator as they need a warm climate for growth. In recent years, coffee has been consumed all over the world as it has become a popular drink.
    Coffee contains stimulants, which are chemicals that make your brain more alert and active. The caffeine in coffee improves our performance on tasks by decreasing reaction time and increasing concentration. It also enhances mood, moderating levels of depression and anxiety.
    Coffee has become a staple in the morning routines of many Americans. Whether it is enjoyed black, with cream and sugar, or in its concentrated form in espresso drinks, coffee is brewed across the country in homes, coffee shops, and offices alike.
    With so many people drinking coffee in the morning, it begs the question: Is drinking coffee in the morning good or bad? From a purely scientific perspective, caffeine can have several negative side effects on people who drink it too much.

  2. It is absolutely not a good idea to drink coffee just after waking up in the morning. Because your body produces cortisol (stress hormone) early morning which is also the main component of your day-long hormonal cycle (circadian clock), that helps you waking up in the morning and sleep at night. Your body produces high levels of cortisol in the early morning and if you drink coffee at this time, it interferes with cortisol production. Your body depends more on caffeine instead of cortisol and develops long-term caffeine tolerances. Because caffeine replaces the boost that your body gets from cortisol instead of supplementing the same.
    Cortisol levels remain high around in the early morning, mid-day, and evening. It is better to consume coffee between 10 a.m – 12 p.m. and 2 p.m – 5 p.m. During this time, caffeine will not interfere with your body’s natural processes.

  3. Everyone sleeps minimum 6–7 hours and takes dinner before 2 hours before sleeping, so when you wake up till that time your body become dehydrated. So instead of coffee you should drink water , warm water is always advisable.
    I was addicted to tea in the morning with the snacks, 2 months back I started doing functional work out via personal trainer , so he advised me not to addict to tea/coffee as it contains caffeine which is not good for health, it is same as taking drugs.
    There are several scientific reasons for it like when we wake up our body generates some hormones and when interact with caffeine may have adverse effect on body.
    He asked me not to take tea/coffee on empty stomach due to indigestion issues. He advised me to take mid morning or early afternoon.

  4. Yes you can drink . coffee contain caffeine which stimulates your brain for activity and give good capability to work . You should take it in limited amount if you take it regularly because large amount consumption of coffee required large dose every time to boost your mind . and another notable thing is that if you are Asthmatic patient , it will worsen yours asthma so avoid coffee and tea in Asthma.
    Although you are addicted with large amount coffee consumption , you can gradually decrease it day by day means that if you are taking 2 spoons coffee in day , reduce it 1.5 spoon on first week and so on .
    thank you

  5. Drink coffee every morning:
    Drinking espresso every morning has a few medical advantages, yet a lot of can raise your danger of cardiovascular sickness. Some espresso might be exactly what you really want to get moving toward the beginning of the day. A subsequent cup is to get out the entryway, and a third (OK, even a fourth) is reasonable on the off chance that you’re particularly drained.

  6. Nope.
    Why? Because coffee is essential to waking you up and jolting your body wide awake paired with a nice breakfast if you’re lucky enough to have one of course and yea while too much coffee can be bad its not actually “bad”, it’s just a stimulant, a delicious aromatic, bean for your morning 🙂
    However here’s a tip, try switching from coffee to drinking a water bottle when you wake up early in the night or morning, it actually helps regulate your body toxins and system much better and may awaken you more than your regular cup!

  7. Drinking coffee in the morning could have some impact on esophagus.
    Caffeine stimulates more secretion of stomach acid, and on an empty stomach, this may cause stomach cramps. Caffeine also loosens the muscle that connects esophagus to stomach, heightening risk of acid reflux.

  8. Many people drink coffee first thing in the morning — but that isn’t the best time to get your caffeine fix. Drinking coffee right after you wake up may interfere with your body’s cortisol production. It’s best to wait at least an hour after waking up to drink coffee

  9. Many people enjoy coffee first thing in the morning before they’ve eaten. Despite persistent myths, little scientific evidence suggests that drinking it on an empty stomach is harmful. Rather, it likely has the same effects on your body no matter how you consume it.

  10. Yes. At 5.30am or 6.00AM, I USUALLY WAKE UP. After brushing, first of all, I drink nearly 300 ml. Water and sip 200ml coffee. After that, 150ml tea after breakfast, noon at 3.30pm a cup of tea and evening at 6.00 pm another cup. For the past 50 years this have been my schedule. Actually I’m from marketing and sales profession tea number will be increased a little bit. Out side I don’t drink water or cool drink. At 65 I’m still BP and Sugar free person.

  11. Coffee has amazing health benefits, including reduction of cancers and increased water intake, even for people who drink more than 6 cups per day. Drink up!

  12. Oh, aside from brushing your teeth with a compatible, favourable, and reliable brand of toothpaste?
    Drinking coffee on the morning helps some people feel less drowsy. It’s the caffeine in the coffee that helps with that.

  13. Is it “good”? If you mean “good” as in, “to be desired, or approved of”? I would say, “Yes! Why not?” If you mean “good” as in, “having the qualities required for a certain role”? I would again say, “Yes!” Have you not found that coffee (when brewed to your personal taste) possesses many positive qualities that make it the perfect way to start your day? It’s fragrance is gently seductive, holding the promise that you are about to land the first sweet success of the day. The cup is warming, alleviating the anxiety of having had to leave your comfy bed. The aroma is full of hope of good things to come. As you sip, you are transformed. The brew is eye-opening, and your thoughts begin to swirl as if caught in the gentle currents steaming from your cup, inspiring, encouraging you until you feel you are once again in command of the day and you silently shout to yourself, “A-ha! Yes! Of course! I can do it!!” Is it good to drink coffee in the morning? Yes, and the sooner, the better.

  14. I personally never acquired a taste for coffee or tea. So they are bad 24/7.
    But others would argue they can’t survive without their morning coffee.
    Some info I found:
    Although early studies of coffee [ ] suggested that it could lead to health problems, recent research provides strong evidence that drinking coffee actually has a variety of health benefits.
    “The overall evidence has been pretty convincing that coffee has been more healthful than harmful in terms of health outcomes,” said Frank Hu [ ], chair of the Department of Nutrition […

  15. If you like to drink coffee go for it, l.dont think is bad, most doctors recommend to drink coffee, for example, Dr. oz say it is good for you. So, if you like coffee go for it.

  16. There are a million things that are more unhealthy than that. Coffee is physically addicting, but too much of anything can be unhealthy.
    With that said, coffee is one of my only vices at the moment and i’ll do some pretty crazy things for my morning, afternoon, and night time coffee

    Is it good or bad to drink coffee in the morning once you get up?

  17. I hope not. No creature with 2 legs or 4 legs is to look at me until I have had a sip. If prone to reflux or heartburn, you might want to have something to eat with it. Please continue to enjoy.

  18. Many people drink coffee first thing in the morning — but it’s not the best time to fix a caffeine problem. Drinking coffee right after waking up may interfere with the body’s production of cortisol. It’s best to wait at least an hour after waking up before drinking coffee.

  19. Besides water, it is bad to have anything first thing in the morning.
    Think of it this way: your intestines are like the watering pipe that you rolled back into place after you’ve finished watering your garden. Let’s say there’s dirt inside your pipe; it’s like the case of your intestines when you go to bed. You wake up the next morning to water your plants, the first flush of water brings out all the dirt with it.
    So when you drink water first thing in the morning, you are bringing out all the residues, cleaning your system, boosting your metabolism, and refreshing yourslef.
    It’s a matter of habit. Start by a couple of sips every morning before you get out of bed and gradually increase them day by day to reach 1–2 cups. Day by day, you’ll feel the urge and the need to do it before you move out of bed. Keep a cup on your bed table for the morning, and when you’re up, drink it then go have a wee.

  20. You can always but you run the risk of producing acid early in the morning which may have av tell tale effect on your muscle which connects your esophagus to your stomach. This may ultimately put you into acid reflux problem.

  21. Yes.
    Caffeine helps in waking us up.
    So, it is good to drink in the morning.
    Just don’t drink it very close to sleep.
    And don’t drink 10 cups in a day.
    1–2 are fine.

  22. Perhaps, it might the most disliked answer. But as we all know that coffee contains Caffeine which is a great nervous stimulant and no wonder because most people find it difficult to wake up in the morning, hence drinking a cup of coffee early morning do the trick of not just waking them up but also puts our brain to action.
    But as we know that our body is in repair mode in the night and releases toxins. So, it is best we drink water, first thing in the morning, which’ll help not just flush the toxins out of your body but also kick starts your metabolism in a very powerful way.
    Even according to Ayurveda, drinking tea or coffee first thing in the morning drains kidney …

  23. It depends on the dose. Excessive caffeine use isn’t good for you. And if you have habituated to it, the stimulant effects become lost and it merely restores your baseline state.
    But a small amount is pretty harmless. For some people the mild stimulant effect is perceived as a positive.

  24. Not at all. In fact I (personally) recommend it. You may want to have a glass of water first though if it you’re coffee is strong. A little creamer can help with the acidity as well if you’re sensitive to such things.

  25. The answer depends on how it affects you & what your personal doctor has to say about it. Not on what strangers online say to you. Research for yourself & talk to your doctor.
    some examples :
    Caffeine can improve memory, decrease fatigue, improve your mental functioning , study after study suggests. It can improve your short-term memory and speed up your reaction times.
    Research has shown that caffeine makes the colon 60% more active than water and 23% more active than decaf coffee

  26. Yes, of course. Many people do this.
    However coffee as a drink is a dehydrator due to the caffeine in it. So i would recommend drinking a glass of water with every cup of coffee, tea and fizzy drink you have. Or drink a cup of coffee as your first drink, and then not long after drink some juice or water as well. This will make sure you’re not dehydrated as dehydration can lead to an urine infection (UTI), or other symptoms like a headache, vomiting and even hospitalisation.
    Although rare you can die from a UTI so be very careful not to get dehydrated. You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

  27. No, no its not. Your first drink of the day should be water. Every cell in your body needs it. Coffee does contain flavanoids, members of the B vitamin family, but they are available in other foods (nuts beans seeds and whole grains). You should drink 8 oz of water and then get ready for your day. Allow at least 45 minutes for the water to penetrate your system. Then you can have your coffee. This is IMHO what I think is best.


  28. While coffee might make us feel more alert, it causes havoc to our system. Our brain as well our heart gets affected. A cup of coffee won’t do serious harm to an adult immediately but it would be a good idea to replace it with a cup of warm water with lemon and honey.
    If you have slept nicely at night, fighting your sleep in the morning and refreshing your mind should not be a major task.

  29. The only issue with enjoying your coffee before eating a single bite is that coffee (even decaffeinated coffee) can increase the production of stomach acid . If your digestive system tends to be sensitive, it could damage the lining of the stomach and make your indigestion, heartburn, or IBS symptoms worse.
    Drinking coffee on an empty stomach can also heighten anxiety symptoms , causing jitters, an increased heart rate, irritability, and an inability to focus.
    Another reason not to drink coffee first thing in the morning has to do with our internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm. It’s responsible for the release of the hormone called cortisol, which is released under stress but which also effects your energy levels.
    Your body’s cortisol levels peak between 8 and 9 a.m., helping your body to wake up naturally . And while it makes sense that consuming caffeine would be the perfect companion to cortisol, scientists have found that consuming caffeine can decrease cortisol levels and greatly diminish the caffeine’s buzzy effect. What?!
    That means you’ll need to drink more and more coffee to feel that jolt, and your body will become more and more dependent on that morning cappuccino. (Are you already experiencing this?!) When it comes to cortisol, the best time to drink coffee is actually between 10 a.m. and noon .
    So the answer is, yes, drinking coffee on an empty stomach can be bad news. If you’re reading this and thinking, “I’ve been drinking my coffee on an empty stomach for years and it doesn’t bother me,” then you’re probably fine to keep doing what you’re doing.
    On the other hand, if you’re experiencing some of these digestive or anxiety symptoms, but you don’t want to give up your coffee mug first thing in the morning, try drinking a huge glass of water beforehand. Certified dietitian Leslie Langevin, MS, RD, CD, of Whole Health Nutrition , says it’s a good idea to drink your coffee with your breakfast instead of before it — try this coffee protein smoothie . If you’re concerned about your cortisol levels, but you wake up many many hours before 10 a.m., then wait at least an hour after waking to get your coffee fix.

  30. If you have a cup of coffee every day for 100 years, you’ll grow to be a very old person!
    Seriously, I have had coffee every morning for more than 50 years. And what’s happened to me? Well, I’ve lost most of my hair, and a few teeth. I have trouble staying awake in the evenings. I can’t run a mile as fast as I once could. I can’t do deep knee bends anymore. And I can’t remember stuff as well as I used to. Also I had to have cataract surgery on my eyes.
    I don’t think the coffee has had anything to do with any of these. I think it’s just age. If you drink coffee for years and years, you’ll get OLD!

  31. It is absolutely amazing to drink coffee in the morning. Coffee wakes me and makes the world bearable – perhaps indicative of my caffeine addiction. As other posters have pointed out staying hydrated is also a good thing as it keeps one energetic and also prevents over eating (the body sometimes confuses hunger and dehydration).
    Coffee is good, water is good.

  32. I think it is. I can’t handle people that well and without coffee they would be in danger of being beaten for stupidity. So, you see, coffee is very healthy.
    For the drinker? There were millions if not billions of people who lived to see the old age even if they drank coffee every morning. If you like it, enjoy it.

  33. Not to my knowledge. If you like coffee enjoy it. I often joke with a friend that the first cup is for the pain . I over heard a guy at the coffee shop saying that 5+ cups a day helps to reduce the risk of alzheimer’s
    .@ Caffeine and coffee as therapeutics against Alzheimer’s disease. … above documented on the web.

  34. Coffee increases the production of stomach acid but doesn’t appear to cause digestive issues for most people. Therefore, drinking it on an empty stomach is perfectly fine.Coffee may cause a temporary rise in the stress hormone cortisol. Nonetheless, this is unlikely to result in health problems, regardless of whether you drink it on an empty stomach or with food.

    Hey chk this if you interested

  35. Coffee is helping you feel less tired and more alert, the caffeine in coffee may improve your mood, brain function, and exercise performance. Many people enjoy drinking coffee first thing in the morning . Yet, some people assert that having it on an empty stomach may harm your health. Coffee in one of the most popular drinks in the world. We love the taste, the smell, and a boost that comes from a coffee. But did you know that there is a clear difference when it comes to drinking the coffee at 11 AM and 7 PM? But i would suggest that coffee should not be consumed after after 6 PM.

  36. Yes it is!! in my case it is a must ( or I might rip your head off.. ROFLOL…) I love my first sip of coffee in the morning,in fact I dream with it!!

  38. Why do so many quorans push an agenda by putting nonsense in the premise to a question?
    Perhaps it’s bad if you had to steal it.
    Perhaps it’s bad if you work nights.
    Perhaps it’s bad for people with an unusual sensitivity to caffeine.
    I would have been happier with a question more like “Is morning coffee bad for you, and why?” It seems more honest, less manipulative.
    But in general, since coffee drinkers live longer than those who do not drink coffee, it seems unlikely that it would be bad. Drinking as many as eight cups of coffee a day could help you live longer, study says I’m at the high end.
    And the benefits seem significant. “Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 – 15 percent less likely to die during a decade of follow-up checks.”
    But there is no proof that coffee causes the difference. Perhaps people who are likely to die younger just happen to like coffee. Or something (like digestive biscuits) associated with coffee causes the effect. I’m going to keep drinking coffee, even in the morning.

  39. Drinking Coffee First Thing
    If you’re a coffee drinker, you won’t like hearing this, but drinking coffee before 9:30 a.m. is not a good idea. Scientists have found that your body naturally produces higher amounts of the energy regulating stress hormone cortisol, between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.
    By drinking coffee before or during that time will just make you jittery and hyper-alert, and confuse your body’s natural cortisol monitoring system, leading to an afternoon crash later.
    Studies say that the best timing for your daily cup of coffee is after 10 a.m. and noon. Instead, enjoy a glass of water, anticipating the joy of pouring that perfect cup of coffee later on in the day.

  40. You have to keep going to the loo all day if you drink coffee before you eat something substantial. Possibly even after you do eat something substantial. It depends on your digestive system.

  41. It depends on the person, normally people don’t need it, but it has benefits that can help people that consume it. Some of the benefits are:
    Boost on energy levels
    Reduces the appetite
    Has antioxidants
    It’s helps in weight loss because it is a low calorie drink
    Reduces inflammation
    But it could also cause reverse effects in health, so moderation and responsible consumption is the key.

  42. Where ever you have your coffee does not matter. The only thing that really matters is being alive to enjoy the best beverage and having a good start for the day. Continue enjoying your coffee where ever you want.
    Thank you.
