Specialists from the University of Bath, in Britain, indicated that drinking coffee on an empty stomach carries with it many risks for the body.
Focus.de reported that a group of specialists at this university studied the blood test results of 29 volunteers, to look for a link between insulin levels and coffee consumption on an empty stomach.
It turns out that having a cup of coffee in the morning can lead to metabolic disorders.
After waking up, the participants were given coffee with sugar, the calorie content of which was equal to a regular breakfast. In the other stage, they would be woken for a few minutes every hour, to drink black coffee, then a sweet drink.
As a result, the researchers found that lack of sleep and coffee consumption negatively affected blood sugar levels, which increased by 50 percent.
According to scientists, this is due to the body’s inability to absorb glucose immediately upon waking.
Experts recommend not drinking coffee on an empty stomach, but rather during or after breakfast, as this will reduce health risks.
