The caffeine in your coffee goes into the bloodstream and travels to the liver, where it is broken down into various compounds.
It affects the brain by blocking the neurotransmitter adenosine, which otherwise makes us tired or sleepy. It also promotes the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, resulting in an alert, focussed brain after about an hour of intake.
Apart from natural sources like seeds, nuts or beans, caffeine is found in espresso, tea, energy drinks, chocolate (and chocolate milk), among other foods.
It is also a part of over-the-counter drugs for cold and pain and in weight loss supplements.
Coffee intake lowers the risk of heart disease and stroke. It tends to increase blood pressure to a small degree in some people.
People who drink coffee in large quantities have a lower risk of type-2 diabetes.
Other benefits of coffee consumption are:
Coffee is addictive and excessive intake can lead to restlessness, anxiety, irregular sleep and heart issues. It can cause headaches, high blood pressure and migraine in some people. It is also advisable to avoid coffee with certain medications.
The recommended maximum dosage of caffeine(not coffee) is 200 to 400 mg per day. It is to be noted that drinking above 500 mg of caffeine in a day can be fatal. As one teaspoon of coffee contains approximately 50 to 60 mg of caffeine, the per day maximum intake should be 7 to 8 teaspoons of coffee powder.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
