If you know people who swear that they cannot ‘’go’’ without their morning cup of coffee, there is some truth in that. Caffeine can stimulate the digestive tract, causing it to empty. However, caffeine is also dehydrating, which means that it only works when you are well hydrated. This method will not work, if you are only drinking coffee and barely any water.
Good quality cacao has a similar effect on the bowel, however it affects blood sugar balance less than caffeine would do, making it a more stable and balanced alternative. Swap your morning coffee for cacao tonic for best results.
