Is coffee a laxative?


Answer by  carol (1241)

Coffee is not classified as a laxative but some people do find that it has that effect on them. If you drink a couple of cups of coffee in the morning you may find yourself heading to the bathroom around noon. While other people do not experience this same effect.


Answer by  dollgirl (636)

Yes, because coffee contains a substance called "caffeol" which has a laxative quality due to its believed effect on peristalsis stimulation.

Some people who drink coffee in the morning tend to use the bathroom at that time. I for one is that type of person, but it only happens in the morning and I drink coffee all day. Coffee make you anxious, chittery, and jumpy. It also gives you energy, but in a bad way.
