We’ve all been there at one point or another: You chug down your morning cup of coffee and the next thing you know, you’re in a full-on sprint to the bathroom. Like it or not, coffee poops are a thing, and while they’re not the hottest topic of conversation, you have to admit: You are curious about why coffee makes you poop. Coffee is just as much of a wakeup call for your gut as it is for your mind, but why exactly do you feel the urge to go number two after drinking your morning cup of joe?
What is it about coffee that makes you sprint to the bathroom in the middle of your morning? Read on and discover possible reasons why drinking coffee has you visiting the bathroom more than you’d like to. From possible causes to potential solutions, we’ve got this one covered.
While there’s no solid answer as to why coffee makes you poop, there are some theories on the coffee-poop connection.
Here are some potential solutions to your coffee-poop dilemma.
According to one study, 29% of participants experienced an increased urge to poop within 20 minutes of drinking coffee – and surprisingly, around 53% of all the women in the study were affected. Women may be more prone to this problem, as digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are more common in women than in men.
People with IBS and older adults may be more prone to this problem because their bowels are more sensitive to the effects of coffee. Further, those who are lactose intolerant may also be affected if they add cream, milk, or other dairy products to their coffee. However, while the urge to go number two after drinking a cup of coffee appears to be common, it doesn’t affect everyone.
While there’s no solid answer as to why coffee makes you poop, there are some theories on the coffee-poop connection. Some of the research points to coffee activating the colon, stimulating hormones, coffee acidity, and dairy products promoting bowel movements. While the urge to go number two after drinking a cup of coffee appears to be common, it doesn’t affect everyone.
Also, there are some potential solutions to this problem. If it’s due to the coffee’s acidity, you can just look for low acidity or acid-free coffee; or, if it’s due to the additives you stir into your brew, you can just avoid milk, cream, and other dairy products. So, whether it’s the caffeine, dairy, or the acid that’s getting to you, there are potential solutions to address the issue without having to give up on coffee altogether.
