“Caffeine’s addictiveness, in fact, may be one reason why six of the seven most popular soft drinks contain caffeine,” reports the center for science in the Public Interest. It’s easy to become hooked if you’re exposed to caffeinated beverages early on.
With the addition of soft dink machines in elementary and junior high schools, and coffee shops on every corner, we are creating a nation of people that are physiologically dependent on this addictive toxin.
Drinking caffeinated beverages can dehydrate the body and interfere with digestion. Caffeine also interferes with the absorption of magnesium, which is critical in maintaining regular, healthy bowel movements.
Coffee over-stimulates the digestive system and can induce a temporary laxative effect, causing the bowels to expel waste before it’s had the chance to process and utilize vital water and nutrients. This frequently leads to a constant state of dehydration and malnourishment among coffee drinkers.
This effect is not only due to the caffeine in coffee- the same effects are seen in people who regularly dink decaffeinated varieties.
Coffee is also highly acidic and can lead to an overproduction of stomach acid that can severely irritate the intestines. Unbelievably, decaffeinated coffee has been shown to trigger even more acid production than regular coffee.
This over-production (when combined with coffee’s laxative effects) can cause too much stomach acid to move into the intestines. All this acid can potentially cause irreversible damage to the intestinal lining.
Slowly eliminating caffeine from your diet may actually relieve the following conditions: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid Reflux, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, high blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, anxiety and Ulcerative Colitis.
