Caffeine is the major ingredient in coffee which stimulates our brain and it is responsible for more activeness in our body. Drinking coffee daily like brushing teeth on waking up really helps a lot the whole day. About 90% of Americans consume caffeine daily(mostly in the form of coffee) and this figure should give an idea as how much effect the coffee has on people. Although America is still not the No.1 in Coffee consumption.
Effects of Coffee on Brain
Getting back to the topic now. Do you guys know about How sleep works and why we feel sleepy? There is a chemical called Adenosine in our brain which binds to Adenosine Receptors causing drowsiness. As a result, the nerve cell activities slows down and we feel like to sleep. Coffee contains Caffeine which when taken binds itself with the Adenosine Receptors and hence it doesn’t slows down the activities of nerve cells instead it speeds them up. It doesn’t let the cells sense the Adenosine chemical as the space is taken up with caffeine. The pituitary gland watches the activity and takes it as some sort of emergency; as a result it ejects some hormones indicating the adrenal glands to produce adrenaline which has a number of effects on our body. Few of them are: Making the heart beat faster (When Blood Pressure slows down, doctors recommend to drink coffee); sugar is released by liver for extra energy; muscles get tighten up and the pupils dilate. These are the main effects of Coffee on our brain and that is why it is consumed in so much quantity in many countries.
Drinking a Cup of Coffee Everyday in Morning
Like we brush daily after waking up, drink a coffee cup everyday to boost our morning. This keeps our whole day active throughout as once we our in motion, the body adapts to continuity. While, if we start dull, the whole day stays like that. Students, workers in night shifts consume coffee at night so that they don’t feel drowsy and can concentrate on work.
