“International society of sports nutrition position stand: caffeine and exercise performance”
Caffeine is the world’s most widely consumed “PSYCHOACTIVE ACTIVE”,substance and naturally occurs in dozens of plant species, including coffee, tea and cocoa. Caffeine is ingested most frequently in the form of a beverage such as coffee, soft drinks and tea, although the consumption of many functional beverages, such as energy drinks, has been on a steady rise in the past two decades.
Caffeine has been shown to benefit endurance type sports such as cycling running and swimming...while shown to be MOST beneficial for endurance training,SMALL to MODERATE benefits are also seen when used for MUSCULAR STRENGTH,SPRINTING,JUMPING ,THROWING and SPORT SPECIFIC SKILLS(Very thorough breakdown on its limited effect on performance)
There’s also what’s known as “INSURMOUNTABLE TOLERANCE”with caffeine utilization?
Unfortunately, only people who aren’t used to caffeine will experience truly euphoric effects!?...Chances are, if you’re a coffee lover, you’ll mostly experience caffeine’s awakening effect, not much else💯
Drinking coffee just once a day is enough to increase your caffeine tolerance.✅
And before you reach for that second cup, remember, caffeine tolerance is an insurmountable tolerance:
At some point, taking more will just stop working.
If you want to maximize the benefits of caffeine, you may want to try weaning yourself off it, to allow your tolerance to fade✅
All play an IMPORTANT role in the optimization of caffeine for COGNITIVE,HEALTH and PERFORMANCE benefits✅
Genetic variants affect the way we absorb, metabolize, and utilize and excrete nutrients, and gene-diet interactions that affect metabolic pathways relevant to health and performance are now widely recognized These inter-individual differences appear to be partly due to variations in genes such as CYP1A2 and possibly ADORA2A, which are associated with caffeine metabolism, sensitivity and response ✅#notforeveryone💯
