    Default So is coffee a diuretic?

    So is coffee a diuretic? I have heard that recently the fda has reversed its classification from a diuretic to no longer being considered one. I have yet to find anything significantly confirming on either end at the FDA's website. So can you guys help me out, what is the official consideration?

    LoaF, FDA - FEDERAL (that says it all - right) Drug Administration. Pay no attention to these findings. Enjoy your cuppa joe. Be aware that most "scientific" findings today usually are tied political agendas. When agendas change or shift so do the facts. Some people's only joy is to piss in the punch bowl. "Scientific" facts about food, barbecue grills, Co2 emmissions, overpopulation, weather and global warming - no! I mean CLIMATE CHANGE!!! is in a constant state of flux. As a result nobody knows nothing about nothing. Keep to moderate coffee drinking. I read that drinking 4-5 cups before noon on thursdays enhances male sexual performance - but more than 6 cups can make you gay....hehe!!!!!...Dennis

    Hi Lifeofa,

    I call the FDA the Fraud and Deception Agency. They approved aspartame after all. And are pro GMO. They have a revolving door for executives from the FDA and Monsanto.

    Anyway back to your question: I found a site that goes through the different findings re coffee:http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/559762_2

    Hope this helps,

    ha!ha!...I brain farted when I referred to the FDA as "FEDERAL". The correct title is "U.S. FOOD and Drug Administration. But my intent stands as is. They are all still govt functionaries intent on doling out hope and change to the unwashed masses trudging ever onward to a new shining tomorrow ..hehe!!!....Dennis

    Why do you care so much if it's a diuretic?

    I am editing a new ebook that includes nutrition advice and meal plans, and I want to make sure I cover all my bases with how I implement coffee, and caffeine in general.

    On a few other forums I posted on they most common reference was Caffeine ingestion and fluid balance: a review. - PubMed - NCBI

    I can say for a fact it is a very effective laxative. It only takes one shot of espresso to feel the effects.

    Coffee does these things to me...
    • Makes me poo
    • Doesn't really make me pee.
    • Suppresses my appetite.
    • Focuses my mind on a single task.


    I always have it black with cinnamon. 1-2 cups a day and never first thing in the morning. Usually a few hours after waking up.

    The confusion sometimes stems from the diuretic effects which can occur with people who start drinking coffee, but there seems to be sufficient evidence that the body adjusts over time (I don't have the study handy that supports this, but have seen this idea referenced in many places). Personally, I'm a coffee freak, but also drink a ton of water during any given day... as I would anyway.

    Most concerns would be for those who may already be overstimulated, or who have overstimulated their adrenals
