    Can Low-Acid Coffee Help You Avoid IBS and Discoloration?

    Can Low-Acid Coffee Help You Avoid IBS and Discoloration?

    by Alex Brecher February 17, 2023

    Coffee is a nutrient-rich beverage that may have many health benefits, but is your coffee causing other troubles due to its high acid content? People with IBS may be asked to follow a low-acid diet, while highly acidic beverages can cause discoloration of teeth. Low-Acid Coffee, such as Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, may offer some relief.

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Low-Acid Coffee

    People with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, can experience symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, or constipation. People often also have heartburn or acid reflux when they consume certain foods or beverages. You may notice that high-acid foods and beverages, including coffee, can cause symptoms. 

    Choosing a lower-acid coffee can help you reduce the acid content of your diet without giving up coffee. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is gentler on the stomach. A third-party, independent lab tested Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee and numerous national brands. The result is that Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is lower in acid than the average of the other brands tested.

    Tooth Discoloration and Low-Acid Coffee

    Coffee may be linked to discolored teeth because of staining. You can get a dentist to remove stains if you visit regularly, but there is another possible cause of tooth discoloration among coffee drinkers. The high acid content of coffee may be a culprit due to something called acid erosion.

    Your teeth are coated with a protective layer called enamel. It helps prevent decay and cavities. When acid is in contact with your teeth for too long and too often, you can experience acid erosion. That means acid reacts with the enamel and wears it away. This is a permanent change, and you may notice tooth discoloration if it happens.

    A way to reduce the effects of acid erosion is to reduce the acid content in your diet. For coffee drinkers, swapping to a lower-acid brand is a surefire way to do just that. When you switch to Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee from a higher-acid brand, you can easily reduce the acid you are getting from coffee.

    Choosing the Best Low-Acid Coffee

    The best low-acid coffee can have other benefits, too. Choose an organic one, and you can be sure that you are avoiding potentially toxic compounds such as chemical fertilizers and herbicides. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is also free from mold and mycotoxins, and it is designed to fit your lifestyle. It comes in these varieties. 

    • French Roast Regular, Half Caff, and Decaf
    • Rise and Shine
    • All types come in Whole Bean, Fresh Ground, and K Cup versions.

    So, is low-acid coffee better for you? You now have some information on it, and will have to decide for yourself. When you try Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, you can be sure that your taste buds can guide you in the right direction. It does not just taste amazing, but also avoids some of the risks of regular, higher-acid coffee. Choose the varieties that are right for your lifestyle, and enjoy!
