There are two sides of the caffeine debate, those who never consume it, or those that love it and cannot get enough. Whichever side you are on, there are some facts about caffeine that are undeniable. In this article we will be discussing caffeine’s downsides and upsides, along with how sleep changes when consuming caffeine.
The obvious upside is that it wakes you up effectively. This can be great in many situations, not just waking up in the morning, but also if you travel at night or if your routine has changed. There is even scientific evidence that caffeine, consumed in safe amounts across a long period of time, can improve memory and alertness.
Some downsides are the ability to get addicted to it quickly, with some experiencing withdrawal symptoms like a headache, muscle pain or even a migraine. The downside that many know about is its ability to suppress melatonin, causing a disruption in sleep. It can change your sleep schedule quickly, leaving you tired the next day. Always consume safe amounts of caffeine and stop consuming it 6 hours before you sleep. Be careful when consuming it since everyone has their own sensitivity level.
