Does Caffeine Regulate Blood Sugar?
We've been looking at recently whether or not caffeine is addictive. Is there a bigger issues associated with possible caffeine addiction of Americans? This is the third part in my series on what caffeine does to your brain and how that can be detrimental to our overall health.
In Part One we looked at caffeine and when it comes to its effect on our brains can be just as addicting as cocaine or methamphetamine. In Part Two I addressed how physiologically caffeine raises our cortisol levels and triggers a stressful action in our body. To put it quite simply, having our body rely on any sort of stimulant in order to feel awake or energized in the morning, probably points to some bigger issues in regards to your health.
Coffee serves as a great mask or escape from our tiredness or foggy heads in the morning, and some studies even suggest that it's not actually caffeine that is making us feel alert in the morning, but it's the caffeine that is taking us out of our withdrawal mode in the morning from the previous day. So your morning coffee is actually just your next fix to help you overcome the withdrawal cycles, which can easily become a routine.
