Whether you have a night to work, or in the morning, and it is difficult for start-up, and a good cup of coffee, you may fatigue go away. But what does this do with coffee, your body, and how (un)healthy to do that?
“It’s true that the caffeine in coffee is a feeling of tiredness and fatigue can be out of the way. The effect is the same for all women, it is partly genetic, and how sensitive you are to caffeine,” says Ellen Kampman, professor of diet and disease at the University of Wageningen.
Caffeine has a stimulating effect on various bodily functions, such as the intestines, heart and blood vessels, kidneys, and central nervous system. That caffeine also has a direct effect on our brain, according to research conducted by, inter alia, Huib Mansvelder professor of neurophysiology at the Free University of Amsterdam, the netherlands.
Effect on the brain
His research group has discovered that a single cup of coffee, all have an effect on the communication between brain cells. “The caffeine is working in the slaapmolecuul of adenosine against it. Adenosine dampens typically the activity of our brain cells,” explains Mansvelder out. “Caffeine inhibits, in turn, adenosine, making the brain cells more active and continue to be. Therefore, you will feel more alert and less tired.”
Caffeine content by the drink: Filter coffee (125 ml)): 85 mg, Instant coffee (125 ml) with 60 mg of Espresso (50 ml): 65 mg of Black or green tea (125 ml): 30 mg energy drink (250 ml): 80 mg So, can you calculate the effect of the caffeine is out of
American scientists have developed a couple of years ago, a model in which the effect of the caffeine, you can predict the future. This was prompted by the fact that 40 per cent of the American soldiers, only five hours a night of sleep and sometimes even less.
The formula is in the study, has now been translated into a handy calculator, which shows you how to create the effect of the coffee can be better. You’ll need to enter in how long you sleep, when you get coffee, have a drink, or to go out for a drink, and you’ll get to see it when you get the alert or response is the greatest. By up to five times that of the caffeine-intake-to-play, and you can judge what time of day you are at your lowest you.
the Coffee is good as well, especially in the long term
Coffee also has a positive impact on the long-term. “Drinking four to five cups of coffee a day appears to have a beneficial effect on many chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer,” said Kampman, who is the effects of coffee on health will be explored.
A overzichtsstudie from Harvard University, and from 2017 to confirm this. It seems, however, that this effect is not due to the caffeine, but other compounds in tea, including polyphenols, have an important role to play.

Still, many people think that drinking coffee is unhealthy. Kampman wants to be rid of the negative image of the tea. “Coffee fits into a healthy diet and ensure to have beneficial effects on common chronic diseases.” Mansvelder, is to agree with her: “In the short term, make the caffeine, our attention is called, in the long term, inhibits the coffee, all kinds of diseases. Nothing wrong with that, then.”
