Caffeine

What is Caffeine and What are the Benefits?

Caffeine has many health benefits that Tru intends to take advantage of in their products. Not only does caffeine increase energy, but it can also increase both short and long term cognitive performance. Caffeine can help with many different areas of life, including exercise, focus, and long term health. A study at Johns Hopkins showed that taking a 200mg caffeine pill boosted memory consolidation. [1] It has also been concluded that caffeine improves reaction time and logical reasoning. In terms of exercise, caffeine has many benefits. It helps replace muscle glycogen concentrations after exercise when combined with carbs. This is important because glycogen stores energy in muscles for their next use. Caffeine has also been shown to reduce muscle pain by up to 48% post-workout. [2] It can also increase stamina levels during exercise as well as chronic inflammation. There are also numerous health benefits unrelated to exercise. Caffeine has the incredible ability to help prevent Parkinson’s [3] and ward off Alzheimer’s disease. [4] Caffeine has also been shown to reduce fatty liver in non-alcoholic related cases. [5] Studies have also shown that caffeine helps reduce the risk of kidney stones. Finally, a daily intake of 200-400 mg of caffeine a day can increase metabolic rates and stimulate brown fat cells causing them to burn more calories.

What are Some Side Effects:

Mayo Clinic recommends not taking more than 400 mg of caffeine in a day for healthy adults, and not more than 200 mg in a single dose, and less for younger people. Some popular energy drinks contain 300 mg of caffeine or more, as well as 40 g of sugar, which can be very dangerous for the body. Some of the following side effects are possible when caffeine is consumed more than what your body is used to or can handle. Because caffeine is proven to increase alertness and attentiveness, an excess can also create varying levels of anxiety based on your tolerance. Caffeine blocks adenosine, which is a neurological chemical that helps you feel tired and releases adrenaline into your body, which makes you more alert. This can be troublesome if your adrenaline levels are too high, as it can create a feeling of nervousness. Caffeine can also be dangerous if it is used to remain awake for an unhealthy amount of time. Insomnia is a possibility if the product inhibits your ability to sleep, which is extremely important for effective body functionality. There are also possibilities of increase heart rates and digestive issues with this ingredient. However, it is critical to understand that these side effects are due to an excess intake of caffeine and do not apply to a standard dosage each day. Mayo Clinic recommends not taking more than 400 mg of caffeine in a day for healthy adults, and not more than 200 mg in a single dose, and less for younger people. Some popular energy drinks contain 300 mg of caffeine or more, as well as 40 g of sugar, which can be very dangerous for the body.
