Coffee Doesn't Wake You up

Coffee Doesn't Wake You upThe most recent study conducted by researchers found that Coffee doesn’t really wake you up. So why do we have such feeling? According to researchers it is just an illusion triggered by public opinion, as coffee has been widely correlated with wake up process.

We often hear from many that their brain doesn’t start working properly in the morning until they drink a cup of coffee. But the stimulating effect for which caffeine is famous may be an illusion, say researchers.

Those who drink a lot of coffee may feel more alert after their first cup of the day. But this is probably because it reverses the fatiguing effects of overnight caffeine withdrawal, say the researchers.

Their study suggests coffee drinkers may actually be better off without their habitual morning mug as it raises the risk of anxiety and high blood pressure.
