I found this: "Caffeine within coffee can act as a stimulant, which might induce bile production that increases bowel movements. And some artificial sweeteners, and lactose, may have a laxative effect."

A Banana and a large mug of home brewed coffee is almost guaranteed to get things going.

Now I can’t back it up with science and references. But I do have years of experience 💩
