THE 3 MAIN EFFECTS OF CAFFEINE ON YOUR BODY (a snapshot)
Caffeine is best in moderation, but why?
1. BLOCKS “TIREDNESS” RECEPTORS IN YOUR BRAIN, this causes your nervous system to be more stimulated and increases adrenaline in your body (fight or flight mode). So even though your tired, you don’t feel it and your body gets ramped up making digestion and other rest and repair functions wait in line.
2. DIURETIC, makes you urinate more causing dehydration.
3. IS ADDICTIVE, or ‘habit forming’
However its not all bad news, chai has ¼ to 1/3 the amount of caffeine compared to coffee. We also blend two caffeine free chais made on rooibos herbal tea (our ‘Caffeine Free Chai ’and our ‘Golden Turmeric Chai). Limiting caffeine or having a break from it every now and then is good for your adrenal system (fight or flight mode).
