Is it caffeine or chlorogenic acid the ingredients of coffee stimulating the stomach?

If it's chlorogenic acid, do you have coffee without chlorogenic acid? Or how to choose coffee with less chlorogenic acid?

In short, love the taste of coffee, but wouldn't the reaction on the body, that is, no diarrhea, frequent urination nor excitement.


I have read that actually decafs have caffeine but way less than regulars. So there could be no reactions at all. Espresso decaffeinated is a very good solution since it has a nice taste & better quality effects on body than instant ones for example. Whether drinking regular coffee or not, make sure you drink enough water, it helps.

    Please elaborate on your argument. You make quite a few claims, but they lack backing up. Adding some references from well-established sources goes a long way. – JJJ Sep 7 at 18:38

I personally couldn't taste any difference between decaf and regular coffee but depends on the brand. According to some resources is decaf the biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet and it has positive impact on health if you drink 2-3 cups per day. From my personal experience, you can drink probably as much decaf as you want since it doesn't have any negative side effects, regarding regular coffee you might get breath problems and high blood pressure if you drink too much. There are lot of good brands of decaf where you don't taste any difference between it and regular coffee.






Decaf coffee may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. It may also reduce the risk of premature death.Decaf coffee may protect against age-related mental decline. It may also reduce the risk of diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.Decaf coffee causes significantly less acid re flux than regular coffee. Drinking more than two cups a day may also reduce the risk of rectal cancer.
