NEVER EVER DO THESE THINGS ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

1. Coffee

Any coffee, decaffeinated or not, can stimulate the secretion of the hormone "Gastrin" responsible for
the secretion of gastric acid. If coffee is consumed on an empty stomach it can promote GRED or
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

2. Oral anti-inflammatory drugs

Never take Aspirin, Ibuprofen and other Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), including
Paracetamol on an empty stomach, because they are known for the side effects who can increase your
gastrointestinal risks such as ulceration, bleeding, and perforation of the stomach or intestine, who are
fatal. The advice of FDA is to take these NSAIDS with food, which can provide a cushioning effect to
your stomach lining.

Tip: You don't need to take a full course meal while you take the medicine, just go for smaller things
such as a biscuit.

3. Alcohol

Think twice before you start drinking alcohol on an empty stomach. When you do that your body
absorbs the alcohol faster. The rate of absorption becomes twice the average rate and it is roughly
equivalent to injecting alcohol into your body.

Here is a tip for when you are in a social obligation to drink. Your option should be a non-carbonated
drink because it will not get absorbed efficiently. And a great idea would be to eat a sandwich with the
drink, especially one with butter.

4. Chewing gum
