An alternative for those who can't drink coffee

My stomach reacts very badly to coffee. I tried all sorts from loose to sap and other mild coffee-like versions. Furaginium, which caused me a lot of harm (it completely flushed magnesium out of the body during cystitis), mobilized me to completely give up drinking coffee.
In this way I returned to grain coffee, which until now I associated only with the years of my childhood, when as a small child I was burning to drink coffee.
This return is very nice. Among several types of coffees (including the famous Inca) I chose Delecta's kujawianka. I was tempted to buy the smell coming out of the packaging, which resembles the smell of real coffee, but also an ecological packaging that impresses with its simplicity.
Cereal coffee contains fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, inulin, and is also a source of polyphenols.

Plain coffee increases blood pressure, and also raises the level of fat in the blood, acidifies the stomach. Cereal coffee does not stimulate gastric acid secretion, so after drinking it, my stomach does not hurt.

Accelerates metabolism, therefore it is recommended for people who are slimming. It can also be drunk by people with hyperacidity, gastrointestinal ulceration, as well as children and pregnant women (also nursing). Unlike normal coffee, which is not recommended for pregnant women.
For me, a huge plus is the increase in the absorption of magnesium. Maybe it will help me "rebuild" magnesium stores.
We can add cinnamon or cardamom to cereal coffee, add soy or rice milk. You can add sugar to it if you sweeten or honey.
Here are some types of grain coffee:

    I don't drink coffee at all, mainly because it started to cause me terrible digestive problems, after each coffee I had to take medicines for stomach pain. However, I found a very tasty solution, I add some cinnamon and ginger to the coffee, which is even indicated for stomach problems

    I guess since I was overdoing the amount of coffee I had been drinking, it wasn't serving me lately. My stomach started to ache, even after a small amount, both from the espresso machine and from the soluble one. I took a long break, but linseed infusion also helped me.
    I drank cooked jelly from these grains, after a few sips throughout the day.
    Now small coffee is fine, but I'm not exaggerating with quantity 🙂

      I had exactly the same! I was afraid that it could be ulcers, because I have problems with my stomach in general, but fortunately it turned out not to be the case. After all, I gave up coffee completely to cereal coffee, which I like very much 🙂 But now I'm exploring the topic of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle in general, and I came across such an interesting product as gentile coffee. I read that it is coffee designed especially for people who have a sensitive, irritated stomach (including ulcers): https://www.suppleo.pl/bristot-kawa-gentile-250-g,3,4,33 I would like to ask if any of you have heard about this coffee and drank it? It actually works as advertised? I am tempted to try ...

      I hear about this coffee for the first time, I have to see the packaging because I'm a visual person. A vegetarian diet with the elimination of milk and eggs helped me a lot with my stomach problems. Since I don't eat meat, I rarely have a stomach ache.

    I love coffee and I can't imagine giving it up. As for cereal is very fattening

      fattening ?! grain coffee supports slimming. I invite you to read the note, I mention it in it. I see that you haven't read the notes very carefully :)

    Grain coffee is also a good alternative if you don't have a coffee machine. I prefer to drink Inka than ordinary soluble 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 2 April 2013 / 18: 29

      I don't have a coffee machine: P anyway, ordinary coffee has a very bad effect on my stomach and I try to eliminate it completely. Unfortunately, there are few places where you can drink decaf coffee with milk other than cow's milk :(
