Can coffee cause heartburn?

Foods and drinks with caffeine, like coffee, may trigger heartburn. However, the science isn’t clear. Some say heartburn symptoms from coffee may be a result of other components of coffee other than caffeine.

Healthy individuals need not worry that their daily cup of coffee or caffeinated beverage is harming their health.

If you are worried about heartburn or effects of caffeine on the body, please see your doctor.

How much caffeine is too much?

1* cup = 8oz
