After effects of the caffeine hangover

A cup of slow death?

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Are you a coffee aficionado? Do you have a sweet tooth for caffeine? You might (not) want to consider life without the morning cup of espresso.

For those looking to kick the butt off the caffeine syndrome, here are a few pointers to the beginning of life without caffeine:

The first thing you will encounter is weakness. The withdrawals, as per researchers, include headaches, lethargy and hefty mood swings.

Since sodas come loaded with sugar, weight loss might also be witnessed. Ironically, some people may experience exactly the opposite; weight gain. This is due to the fact that caffeine suppresses appetite and therefore, to stop drinking the stimulant would lead to a more natural appetite.

Sleep would be deep, and according to researchers, those who don’t drink caffeine will be able to clock in more snooze time than those who do, even if a little bit.

Mental balance would soon return with the easing of blood pressure. Lesser anxiety and stress would provide more relaxation to the individual.

However, not everything is wrong with caffeine intake though. Coffee is the number one source of antioxidants, drinking five to six cups of which cuts heart disease risk by 21 percent.

Caffeine also boosts exercise performance and so reducing the intake of coffee may amount to reduction in the amount of calories burnt during an intense workout.

To drink caffeine or not is the question.

  • Want to live longer? Charge up on your cup of coffee. According to a study, caffeine consumption may prolong the lifespan of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Drinking coffee can Reduce mortality 

The findings showed a dose-dependent inverse association between caffeine and all-cause mortality.

People who had the highest intake of coffee had 24 percent lower risks of dying, while those in the second, third quartile of caffeine consumption had 12 percent and 22 percent lower risk.

“These results suggest that advising patients with CKD to drink more caffeine may reduce their mortality. This would represent a simple, clinically beneficial, and inexpensive option,” said Miguel Bigotte Vieira from Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte, in Portugal.

However, “this benefit should ideally be confirmed in a randomised clinical trial”, Vieira added.

For the study, the team examined the association of caffeine consumption with mortality among 2328 patients with CKD. The results will be presented at the ongoing ASN Kidney Week 2017 in New Orleans.

Moreover, this observational study cannot prove that drinking coffee reduces the risk of death in patients with CKD, but only suggests the possibility of such a protective effect, Vieira stressed.

Drinking coffee can also reduce diabetes risk, revealed a reported in the American Chemical Society Journal of Natural Products.(IANS)
