A Caffeine Wake Up Call
Having trouble sleeping? It could be your afternoon beverage wreaking havoc on your body’s internal clock.
A recent study examined the effect caffeine consumption has on sleep. The results showed that consuming an afternoon coffee or caffeinated product could delay your natural sleep cycle by nearly two hours!
The urges we feel to consume coffee or energy drinks late in the day are commonly caused by a lack of nutrition. The human body has an incredible energy production system called the Krebs Cycle. Our cells can manufacture all the energy we need daily. Unfortunately, by not eating correctly, or a sufficient amount of the required nutrients, our Krebs Cycle sputters and energy level plummets. This causes us to reach for that pseudo fix, caffeine.
Believe it or not, caffeine is not energy. It’s actually a stimulant that creates an excitatory effect in our central nervous system. It is a useful tool to wake us up, quickly bringing our mind to full alert. However, it quickly becomes a negative to our body if we continue to consume it throughout the day.
Vitality is packed with nutrients that fuel the Krebs Cycle. All it takes is one dose of Vitality with a meal and your body will fire up its own energy production! You’ll find yourself full of energy and sleeping much better.
