Throughout history, coffee has been lauded as a miraculous beverage. Not only can it help you wake up and improve your mental alertness, but Healthline reports that it may also help prevent Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and type 2 diabetes.
Additionally, there is scientific evidence to support the assertion that coffee and other caffeinated beverages cause nausea, primarily due to acid reflux. If you have an intolerant stomach, you might want to try a cold brew or a caffeine-free variety.
However, coffee's acidity present in coffee does contribute to its overall flavor, but when consumed on an empty stomach, these acids may cause irritation of the stomach lining and have been known to cause nausea.
Opt for darker roasts that have lower acidity, and the chemicals produced during the roasting process may help to neutralize your stomach acid.
If you have a sensitive stomach on hectic mornings, you may want to avoid caffeinated beverages. According to JavaPresse, coffee is an "intense beverage." “It has a robust, bold, and complex flavor and chemical composition. If you drink coffee and skip breakfast, you're going to have problems.
Without food to buffer the acidity, coffee acids can even thin the lining of the stomach and intestines, causing reflux or gastritis.
That is why skipping breakfast is a bad idea, even more so if you are unable to start your day without a cup of coffee.
