Many people are completely addicted to substance. Caffeine. Some can’t wake up without it. You might be surprised at some of the other things it does to you.
- Increases the rate of calorie burn for a few hours after consumption
- In high amounts, can adversely affect fertility
- It leeches calcium out of your bones (makes them weaker)
- Increases endurance and speed
Like most things you put into your body – moderation is key. Caffeine has mixed effects: some good, some bad. There are a few groups who shouldn’t partake of the Javajuice at all – namely small children and pregnant women will be given a variety of advice. Some doctors will tell you to limit your intake to less than 100mg/day (about 2 cups of tea) or skip it all together.
Enjoy your jolt in moderation. Try a new way to wake up. Maybe move your exercise to a brisk walk immediately after you wake. Maybe try some tea, which has half the caffeine, instead of coffee. Mix it up!
