Re: Can Coffee and Orange Juice cause Constipation?
Nope, coffee doesn't constipate you...it actually does just the opposite. A withdrawal symptom from caffeine is constipation...however, if you add milk, cream, or half/half and you are lactose intolerant, that could cause bloating.
I'm not sure about orange juice. I would highly doubt it however. It does have some fiber. Most fruit juices will cause diarrhea before constipation. When a child is sick with a stomach virus, the dr. advises against fruit juices due to the fact it makes diarrhea worse and can cause dehydration...
Drinking lots of water does help constipation.
Hope this helps!
