Coffee When And How Much

By Tina Hudgins

Coffee is drink of necessity among adults, and surprisingly even teenagers around the world. It is served in wide number of different styles including french, dark, double, light, medium. Coffee contains the substance known as caffeine has the properties of a stimulant and can increase feelings of well-being, and alertness. As a result of this, much like other stimulants, coffee is habituating and is a kind of drug, in that it is psychoactive.

If one is to concede that caffeine is legitimately a drug, however, they indeed must also concede that it's a relatively safe one. Though it is benign, it isn't without its host of effects. Many of these effects are more desirable and even useful while others less so. It's noteworthy that white, black, and green tea contain caffeine as well, though at a lower concentration. The question that haunts individuals consciousness is: how much gourmet coffee is too much, and when is the best time to consume it?

Caffeine has a relatively long half-life, and is known for its ability to disrupt the natural sleep-wake cycle even many hours after it has been consumed. For this reason it is critical that you drink it a reasonable length of time before going to bed, and frequently this will be much greater in length than a person will expect. For most people this implies you probably shouldn't consume caffeine any later than noon if you want to prevent it from impacting your nap time.

Because of the obvious fact that caffeine is a drug like any other, once tolerance increases a number of people soon enough find themselves creeping up on an ever higher dose. In lieu of imbibing one cup of gourmet coffee they may end up drinking four, or five. The honest truth is, the greater amount of coffee that you imbibe the greater the probability you will have an amount of it still in your bloodstream by the time you go to bed. This can stop you from ever getting that extremely deep level of sleep.

Coffee isn't all gloom and doom, though. Gourmet coffee does have some real benefits as well. One such benefit is the notable effect it has on the lifting of weights and aerobic endurance. Caffeine is somehow able to cause a physical boost, which is the reason many weightlifters consume some before a fitness session. It's also been shown to decrease the risk of stroke in females. Watch out, though! Caffeine has also been correlated with atrial fibrillation.
