Coffee

But we love a morning capuccino!

Sorry people, but if you love starting your day with a morning coffee to wake you up you're wrong.

Don't blame us - blame science.

According to a scientist in America who goes by the name of Steven Miller, drinking coffee in the morning doesn't give you any kind of boost!

Like you, we thought he was just pranking us too, but it turns out he's backed it up with some scientific stats.

And who can argue with those right?

 

According to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences student, it's all about the circadian clock (or body clock to most of us).

Now for the really sciency part...

The hormone Cortisol, which makes us feel awake and alert, is released by the body at three points during the day - 8am/9am, midday/1pm and 5.30pm/6.30pm.

If you drink coffee during those periods, the effectiveness of that caffeine boost you thought you were getting is reduced because the Cortisol is already having that effect on us.

Plus, if you drink coffee during those periods regualrly, it can actually increase your tolerence of caffeine in the long run and make it less impactful on your body in future.

 

So if you're going to drink coffee to give yourself a nice energy boost, do it any other time apart from the ones mentioned earlier and you'll really feel the full effects.

Remember people, we don't make the rules - it's science.
