All About Caffeine

Wake up to caffeine

Caffeine is found naturally in many plants such as coffee beans, tea leaves, cocoa beans, guarana and cola nuts. People have enjoyed food and beverages containing caffeine for thousands of years. Today, caffeine is the world’s most popular drug and is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola drinks, energy drinks and guarana products. 

Caffeine is a stimulant which makes the central nervous system (CNS) speed up the messages to and from the brain. This produces a condition of wakefulness and increased mental alertness. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system by blocking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that normally cause a feeling of fatigue. This alters the uptake of other neurotransmitters such as dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin and adrenaline resulting in an increase of mental alertness.
