What Is Caffeine Exactly?
Caffeine is the worldwide most popular psychotropic drug and is widely known for its ability to relieve fatigue. It is a compound naturally found in tea leaves, coffee beans, and some lesser-known plants.
Studies have shown that an appropriate dose of caffeine can improve concentration, memory, reaction time, motor coordination, and wakefulness.
In addition, moderate caffeine consumption has been shown to have many benefits on health, as follows:
- Related to the lower risk of type 2 diabetes;
- Decrease the cortisol response;
- Stimulate the metabolic response;
- Related to reducing the risk of dementia.
Over-Consumption Of Caffeine?
Although caffeine has many health benefits, excessive intake can cause problems, such as irritation of the digestive tract, causing anxiety, sleep disruption, and increased blood pressure.
If you experience the following signs, they show that you have over-consumed caffeine. All you need to do is to stop continuing to consume it immediately. The symptoms are as follows:
- Discomfort stomach (excessive stimulation of the stomach);
- Sleep interruption;
- Feel anxious, irritable;
- Feeling over-excited and fast heartbeat.
Keep in mind that the amount of caffeine required to produce these effects varies from person to person, depending on body size, health status, and tolerance level. If you are sensitive to caffeine and easily become over-excited, you may need to stay away from coffee.
