How Low-Acid Coffee Helps with Digestive Disorders

How Low-Acid Coffee Helps with Digestive Disorders

by Alex Brecher September 07, 2022 2 min read

Digestive disorders are pretty common, and they can be inconvenient and uncomfortable. Often, you may notice that what you eat and drink affects symptoms. As an acidic beverage, coffee is a commonly reported trigger for symptoms such as heartburn or an upset stomach, but what about low-acid coffee? 

Low-acid coffee may be an option for coffee lovers who are trying to follow a lower-acid diet. Alex’s Acid Free Coffee is lower in acid, and it also comes in decaffeinated versions if you’re limiting caffeine as well. 

Common Digestive Disorders and Coffee

There are many common digestive disorders. Just a few of them are regular heartburn and acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcers, irritable bowel disease (IBD), such as colitis and Crohn’s disease. Another common condition that people experience is constipation. 

Many of these disorders become more common as we get older. Some, such as an upset stomach, constipation, and heartburn, can be prevalent during pregnancy. Something that these conditions have in common is that they may be affected by what you eat and drink. You may notice that coffee affects how you feel.

Coffee and Your Digestive System

Coffee can affect your digestive system. Many people notice that it triggers heartburn or acid reflux. That may be in part because of the acid content of coffee. Another effect of acid in coffee may be that it irritates the lining of the stomach if you have an ulcer. That can be painful! It can also make you feel different if you have IBS or IBD.

Caffeine and Digestive Disorders

How does caffeine affect your digestive system? In some cases, it can be a problem. For example, it can exacerbate heartburn and acid reflux, or intensify diarrhea if you have IBD or IBS. 

On the other hand, caffeine could stimulate your digestive system, which is definitely welcome if you have constipation! Alex’s Acid Free Coffee comes in Regular, Half Caff, and Decaf versions to meet your needs. 

If you’re looking for decaffeinated coffee, you may want to consider the decaffeination process. That’s because the conventional process usually involves chemicals. How do chemicals make you feel when you have a digestive disorder? If you’re worried about chemicals used in the decaffeination process, organic coffee may be a better option. Decaffeinated Alex’s Acid Free Coffee has the caffeine removed using a filtration process that doesn’t take any chemicals. 

The Best Low-Acid Coffee

If you are looking for a coffee with a lower acid content, you want one that is high-quality and tastes great. Alex’s Acid Free Coffee has great taste, with a blend of beans from Mexico, Nicaragua, and Honduras. It’s roasted to a medium-dark French roast, which has a lower acid content, and it is certified organic and guaranteed fresh. 

Life can be a balancing act if you have a digestive disorder. Tiny missteps may throw off your system, so it’s important to be cautious with your food and beverage choices. If you are on a low-acid diet or coffee is a trigger for you, a low-acid coffee can be a better choice for you. Alex’s Acid Free Coffee is fresh, great-tasting, and available in Regular, Half Caff, and Decaf versions.
