Is it Harmful to Drink Coffee in the Morning – A Doctor’s Answer


For example, medical doctor Dr. Karan Raj recommended that people wait a couple of hours immediately after waking up before drinking a cup of coffee.

Karan Raj, MD, an employee of the National Health Service of Great Britain, has revealed the dangers of morning coffee consumption for people. This is reported by journalists of the British edition of The Sun.

According to Raj, you should not drink coffee on an empty stomach and immediately after sleep. He also explained that in the morning, the hormone cortisol helps the human body wake up, and caffeine, in turn, disrupts the body’s natural processes.

For example, the expert recommended waiting a couple of hours immediately after waking up before drinking a cup of coffee.

“Postpone your drink until mid-morning, when your cortisol levels are lower. In this case, the caffeine will work much more effectively,” Raj explained.

Netizens expressed indignation in response to the doctor’s recommendations in the comments under the post.

“I can’t do that. I need to drink coffee every morning, otherwise, I won’t be able to live,” “Can I drink coffee in the morning and two hours after waking up as a compromise,” “I must have a cortisol deficiency because it takes me at least half an hour to force myself to wake up,” they said.
