How to Get Rid of Stomach Discomfort

Coffee Can Aid Digestion

If you drink alcohol while eating, it is not necessarily good, because that can slow down the digestion process. In small quantities, the consumption of alcohol – for example as an aperitif – improves the digestion process, but only sometimes.

Alcohol has a muscle-relaxing effect and thus increases the stomach’s food absorption capacity. In addition, it stimulates the formation of acid and gastric protective layers. This applies, however, only for very small quantities, for example, a glass of beer or wine. Other spirits, on the other hand, are not very helpful. The popular espresso after a rich meal can also be helpful – coffee stimulates the blood circulation and the gastrointestinal tract, and that, in turn, makes you feel fitter after eating.
