Why shouldn't you drink coffee in the morning?

Drinking coffee early in the morning, right after waking up, is a bad idea, according to UK National Health Officer Dr. Karan Raj.

On his TikTok page, the doctor published a video in which he said that in the morning the hormone cortisol helps the human body to wake up, and caffeine disrupts the natural processes of the body.

To avoid problems, the specialist recommends waiting a couple of hours after waking up before drinking a cup of coffee.

Set aside your drink until the middle of the morning, when your cortisol levels drop. In this case, caffeine will work much more effectively, he noted.
