Using Caffeine Wisely

Have you ever felt that sudden burst of energy or overwhelming alertness after drinking a cup of coffee? What about the disappearance of your headache after a steaming mug of green tea? Since most of the world seems to think so, it’s likely you think caffeine is bad for you. However, are you aware of the many benefits of caffeine?
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of caffeine is the stimulation it produces. Not that we should expect to live on two hours of sleep each night and coffee alone, but caffeine certainly does have an effect on our ability to function. Caffeine stimulates brain activity, creativity, focus, and motivation.

When you have no ideas flowing through your mind, no energy to get outside, or no desire to work on a big project, caffeine supplements or caffeinated drinks can change everything. Within moments of caffeine consumption, you’ll feel more energized, alert, and excited.

Aside from the outward improvements, caffeine also stimulates the cardiovascular and digestive systems to be at the top of their game. Caffeine works as a great total-cleansing agent as it keeps everything in the digestive track moving. It also gets the heart rate going and your blood flowing for something akin to an adrenaline rush that lasts a while.

Caffeine is used in many medications as a pain reducer. It has been widely proven that a small amount of caffeine can help calm headaches and relieve pain (including lower back pain and cramps associated with pre-menstrual syndrome). Caffeine is even used for premature infants as a way to stimulate the activity of their lungs.

The fact of the matter is that, like with anything else, caffeine should be used wisely. “Everything in modern” is the key. Caffeine is not the cure for all of your problems, but it can be used in many beneficial ways. It’ll help curb headaches, increase motivation and uplifting emotions, decrease mild pains, and even help as a weight loss solution.

The most important thing to remember about using caffeine wisely is that it does dehydrate the body. Therefore, those who consume caffeine, whether in coffee, tea, soda, supplements, or food, should ensure they are also hydrating themselves with plenty of water (and essential nutrients) in order to keep the entire body functioning at its peak performance!

Enjoy your caffeine in whatever form you consume it! The benefits and results are above and beyond anything negative you’ve ever heard about this stimulant
