My dears, this topic was really difficult for me to open, you will probably hate me because this topic is sensitive here in Macedonia. We do not start the day without coffee, some regularly drink 3, 4, and 5 coffees a day. Life can not move in the right direction if you do not sit in a cafe, restaurant with friends, colleagues, relatives, business contacts, etc. It is simply part of our daily lives. I do not want to say that you should not drink coffee, but I want to share with you interesting information and the latest research that is, at the same time everything has been proven to me in medicine. the moment of enjoying drinking coffee, without any consequences in your body.
Caffeine found in coffee, carbonated beverages, black and green tea, chocolate, cocoa, and soft drinks is addictive for those who consume them. Caffeine intake enters the bloodstream almost immediately, after half an hour our body completely takes over. And what next?
Here is the script:
There is an adenosine compound in the brain, caffeine blocks it. What is adenosine? A compound that has a calming effect (slows down brain cells, and does not lead to sleep) and thus caffeine keeps the body awake because it blocks adenosine. You do not sleep. You are already creating a habit, and you are normally looking for a second dose. In a few hours - a large amount of caffeine poisons your body (about 15 grams)
1 cup of coffee has about 100 mg of caffeine, a cup of black tea has about 50 mg.
For some, after several cups of coffee, anxiety, palpitations and the like occur. In people addicted to caffeine, after they stop drinking coffee they enter an abstinence crisis (they feel bad, headaches, they are sleepy, their blood pressure decreases, they lose concentration…)
But once they drink caffeine again, the symptoms return to normal. Well, now more scientific research shows that mental- (brain) and physical activity can be increased when caffeine is taken, because energy is withdrawn from all the depots of the body, so that in other parts of the body there is a lack of vital energy. But if we do not take caffeine, I mean if someone has never taken a caffeinated drink, these abilities would not be reduced, but normal because in our body there are substances that give us energy even without caffeine.
