Why should I reduce my caffeine intake and how can I do it safely?
Caffeine is a contributor and sometimes the cause of many issues people face such as, insomnia and anxiety. It is the most widely used drug in the world with coffee and tea being the leading way to consume. Caffeine causes us to have a short burst of energy by changing the chemical reactions in our brains; producing more dopamine which makes us more alert and supressing melatonin which helps to regulate our sleep and wake cycle.
Unfortunately, the body builds up a tolerance of caffeine and so to feel any affects from it we have to increase our intake. The problem with this is that the body thinks it needs this intake of caffeine and so reducing it, if not done safely, can create side affects such as headaches.
So why should you reduce your caffeine intake?
Caffeine essentially is a drug. It messes with the brain and prevents it from doing its normal job- surely that is enough for anyone to reduce their intake?
Caffeine can cause symptoms of anxiety if large amounts are consumed, such as a racing heart. This can then cause the anxiety to escalate. So, if you are struggling with anxiety, reducing your caffeine could help.
Caffeine can cause other issues such as difficulty losing weight, irritability, headaches, insomnia and increased heart rate.
