Many people could not imagine a morning without a cup of delicious coffee. A lot of them say that coffee awakens them for the next day and provides energy. However, what if you find that up to now you were not drinking coffee the way you should?
All people have a circadian rhythm, which controls the release of stress hormone cortisol. This hormone also provides vigilance for entire day. The highest peak if cortisol is about 8-9 in the morning, but here it is the whole secret. Usually at this time, a lot of people are enjoying their coffee, thinking that it’s a great way to wake up faster and feel cheerful.
Unfortunately, many studies suggest that drinking a cup of coffee at 8-9 a.m., the effect of caffeine significantly reduces. Basically it means that you will need more cups of coffee to have the same effect.
So, you should only drink coffee after 9 in the morning. You should also avoid coffee at 12-1 p.m. and 5.30-6.30 p.m., which are also considered to be a time of cortisol peak. For those who love to sleep longer, it is recommended to drink a cup of coffee at least an hour after awakening.
