Coffee works differently for each individual. It can increase bowel movements in some to the point of causing diarrhea. On the other hand, it can worsen constipation in those who are already dehydrated. The rule applies to other caffeinated foods as well like colas, black tea, soft drinks, chocolates, etc. Therefore, keep in mind that while multiple cups of coffee can trigger excretion, if you’re constipated already, you should avoid the second cup.
