Everything you do not know about caffeine
This article addresses the important question of whether there is a link between caffeine and the upsurge of hemorrhoids. Here are some tips to help you manage the adverse effects of excessive caffeine intake. Other tips will help you reduce your caffeine intake.
The caffeine and hemorrhoids are two completely incompatible elements. The main side effect of caffeine is its diuretic action, i.e., the consumption of caffeine-rich beverages and foods causes dehydration of the body, which in turn generates constipation. Constipation is cited as one of the leading reasons for the development of hemorrhoids. Constipation causes hardening and drying of the stools, which irritates and scrapes hemorrhoids during intestinal movements, and can therefore also promote their recrudescence.
Moreover, the pressure that appears during intestinal movements worsens the hemorrhoids, since this pressure increases the blood flow to the already congested hemorrhoids. The second negative effect of caffeine on your hemorrhoids is therefore linked to the fact that it increases the blood pressure exerted on them which are already-already very congested.
It is advisable to consume eight glasses of water or non-caffeinated liquid to compensate for dehydration generated by caffeine. However, be careful, especially do not replace caffeine with beer or any other alcoholic beverage; Alcohol is the worst enemy of hemorrhoids.
