What Will Happen to the Body if You Completely Give up Coffee – A Nutritionist’s Answer

Nutritionist Svetlana Panchenko recommended giving up coffee for at least two weeks (as an experiment). But the main thing is to strictly observe the deadline.

Daily consumption of large amounts of coffee negatively affects the liver and thyroid gland. This was stated by nutritionist Svetlana Panchenko.

“I recommend everyone to give up coffee for at least two weeks (as an experiment). It can significantly disrupt gastric secretion, which means that proteins and iron from food will be absorbed worse, and the pathogenic microflora in the intestines, on the contrary, will begin to grow,” the expert says.

Panchenko noted that in some people, caffeine causes bile to be released. And this phenomenon can be both good and bad. On the one hand, it works as a mild laxative, and in the case of constipation, the effect will be positive. On the other hand, too fast evacuation of a food lump does not allow the intestines to absorb all the nutrients from it.

Coffee also stimulates the central nervous system and increases blood pressure.

“For hypotensive people, this is a favorable effect, but for people with normal blood pressure, coffee abuse increases the risk of cardiovascular disease,” Panchenko summarized.
