A methylxanthine naturally occurring in some beverages and also used as a pharmacological agent. Caffeine's most notable pharmacological effect is as a central nervous system stimulant, increasing alertness and producing agitation. It also relaxes SMOOTH MUSCLE, stimulates CARDIAC MUSCLE, stimulates DIURESIS, and appears to be useful in the treatment of some types of headache. Several cellular actions of caffeine have been observed, but it is not entirely clear how each contributes to its pharmacological profile. Among the most important are inhibition of cyclic nucleotide PHOSPHODIESTERASES, antagonism of ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, and modulation of intracellular calcium handling.
A loosely defined group of drugs that tend to increase behavioral alertness, agitation, or excitation. They work by a variety of mechanisms, but usually not by direct excitation of neurons. The many drugs that have such actions as side effects to their main therapeutic use are not included here.

Ca-releasing action of beta, gamma-methylene adenosine triphosphate on fragmented sarcoplasmic reticulum. (1/3667)

beta,gamma-Methylene adenosine triphosphate (AMPOPCP) has two effects on fragmented sarcoplasmic reticulum (FSR), i.e., inhibition of the rate of Ca uptake and the induction of Ca release from FSR filled with Ca. The Ca release brought about by AMPOPCP has many features in common with the mechanism of Ca-induced Ca release: i) it is inhibited by 10 mM procaine; ii) the amount of Ca release increases with increase in the extent of saturation of FSR with Ca; iii) increase of the Ca concentration in the extent of saturation of FSR with Ca; iii) increase of the Ca concentration in the medium facilitates the release of Ca. However, no facilitation of Ca release upon decrease of Mg concentration in the medium is observable. AMPOPCP and caffeine potentiate each other remarkably in their Ca-releasing action, irrespective of the kind of substrate. From the mode of action of AMPOPCP on the rate of Ca uptake, the amount of phosphorylated intermediate (EP), and the effect on Sr release, it is suggested that the state of the FSR-ATP complex is crucial for Ca-induced Ca release.  (+info)

Drug-protein binding and blood-brain barrier permeability. (2/3667)

The permeability surface area (PS) product, an index of permeability of the blood-brain barrier (BBB), was measured by using the in situ perfusion method. In the cerebral circulation, the fraction of drug that permeates into the brain through the BBB is not only the unbound fraction but also the fraction dissociated from the protein in the perfusate. The sum of these two fractions, the apparent exchangeable fraction, was estimated by fitting the parameters of the BBB permeability under the condition of varying BSA concentrations in the perfusate. The unbound fraction of drugs in a buffer containing 0.5 mM BSA was measured by using the ultrafiltration method in vitro, and the apparent exchangeable fraction was measured in vivo by using the intracarotid artery injection method. The apparent exchange fraction was 100% for S-8510, 96.5% for diazepam, 90.9% for caffeine, 38.3% for S-312-d, 33.1% for propranolol, and 6.68% for (+)-S-145 Na, and each of these was higher than the corresponding unbound fraction in vitro in all drugs. The apparent exchangeable fractions, for example, were 8 times higher for diazepam and 38 times for S-312-d than the unbound fractions in vitro. The apparent exchangeable fraction of drugs was also estimated from the parameters obtained with the perfusion method. Because drugs can be infused for an arbitrary length of time in the perfusion method, substances with low permeability can be measured. The apparent exchangeable fractions obtained with this method were almost the same as those obtained with the intracarotid artery injection method.  (+info)

Acquisition of nicotine discrimination and discriminative stimulus effects of nicotine in rats chronically exposed to caffeine. (3/3667)

Caffeine and nicotine are the main psychoactive ingredients of coffee and tobacco, with a high frequency of concurrent use in humans. This study examined the effects of chronic caffeine exposure on 1) rates of acquisition of a nicotine discrimination (0.1 or 0.4 mg/kg, s.c., training doses) and 2) the pharmacological characteristics of the established nicotine discrimination in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Once rats learned to lever-press reliably under a fixed ratio of 10 schedule for food pellets, they were randomly divided into two groups; 12 animals were maintained continuously on caffeine added to the drinking water (3 mg/ml) and another 12 control rats continued to drink tap water. In each group of water- and caffeine-drinking rats, there were six rats trained to discriminate 0.1 mg/kg of nicotine from saline and six rats trained to discriminate 0.4 mg/kg of nicotine from saline. Regardless of the training dose of nicotine, both water- and caffeine-drinking groups required a comparable number of training sessions to attain reliable stimulus control, although there was a trend for a slower acquisition in the caffeine-drinking group trained with 0.1 mg/kg of nicotine. Tests for generalization to different doses of nicotine revealed no significant differences in potency of nicotine between water- and caffeine-drinking groups. The nicotinic-receptor antagonist mecamylamine blocked the discriminative effects of 0.1 and 0.4 mg/kg nicotine with comparable potency and efficacy in water- and caffeine-drinking groups. There was a dose-related generalization to both the 0.1 and 0.4 mg/kg nicotine cue (maximum average of 51-83%) in water-drinking rats after i.p. treatment with d-amphetamine, cocaine, the selective dopamine uptake inhibitor GBR-12909, apomorphine, and the selective dopamine D1 receptor agonist SKF-82958, but not in caffeine-drinking rats (0-22%). There was no generalization to the nicotine cues after i.p. treatment with caffeine or the selective D2 (NPA) and D3 (PD 128,907) dopamine-receptor agonists in water- and caffeine-drinking rats. The dopamine-release inhibitor CGS 10746B reduced the discriminative effects of 0.4 mg/kg nicotine in water-drinking rats, but not in caffeine-drinking rats. There was no evidence of development of tolerance or sensitization to nicotine's effects throughout the study. In conclusion, chronic caffeine exposure (average, 135 mg/kg/day) did not affect the rate of acquisition of the nicotine discrimination, but it did reduce the dopaminergic component of the nicotine-discriminative cue. The reduction of the dopaminergic component of the nicotine cue was permanent, as this effect was still evident after the caffeine solution was replaced with water in caffeine-drinking rats. That nicotine could reliably serve as a discriminative stimulus in the absence of the dopaminergic component of its discriminative cue may differentiate nicotine from "classical dopaminergic" drugs of abuse such as cocaine and amphetamine.  (+info)

Caffeine can override the S-M checkpoint in fission yeast. (4/3667)

The replication checkpoint (or 'S-M checkpoint') control prevents progression into mitosis when DNA replication is incomplete. Caffeine has been known for some time to have the capacity to override the S-M checkpoint in animal cells. We show here that caffeine also disrupts the S-M checkpoint in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. By contrast, no comparable effects of caffeine on the S. pombe DNA damage checkpoint were seen. S. pombe cells arrested in early S phase and then exposed to caffeine lost viability rapidly as they attempted to enter mitosis, which was accompanied by tyrosine dephosphorylation of Cdc2. Despite this, the caffeine-induced loss of viability was not blocked in a temperature-sensitive cdc2 mutant incubated at the restrictive temperature, although catastrophic mitosis was prevented under these conditions. This suggests that, in addition to S-M checkpoint control, a caffeine-sensitive function may be important for maintenance of cell viability during S phase arrest. The lethality of a combination of caffeine with the DNA replication inhibitor hydroxyurea was suppressed by overexpression of Cds1 or Chk1, protein kinases previously implicated in S-M checkpoint control and recovery from S phase arrest. In addition, the same combination of drugs was specifically tolerated in cells overexpressing either of two novel S. pombe genes isolated in a cDNA library screen. These findings should allow further molecular investigation of the regulation of S phase arrest, and may provide a useful system with which to identify novel drugs that specifically abrogate the checkpoint control.  (+info)

Mutation screening of the RYR1 gene and identification of two novel mutations in Italian malignant hyperthermia families. (5/3667)

Point mutations in the ryanodine receptor (RYR1) gene are associated with malignant hyperthermia, an autosomal dominant disorder triggered in susceptible people (MHS) by volatile anaesthetics and depolarising skeletal muscle relaxants. To date, 17 missense point mutations have been identified in the human RYR1 gene by screening of the cDNA obtained from muscle biopsies. Here we report single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) screening for nine of the most frequent RYR1 mutations using genomic DNA isolated from MHS patients. In addition, the Argl63Cys mutation was analysed by restriction enzyme digestion. We analysed 57 unrelated patients and detected seven of the known RYR1 point mutations. Furthermore, we found a new mutation, Arg2454His, segregating with the MHS phenotype in a large pedigree and a novel amino acid substitution at position 2436 in another patient, indicating a 15.8% frequency of these mutations in Italian patients. A new polymorphic site in intron 16 that causes the substitution of a G at position -7 with a C residue was identified.  (+info)

Infrared dichroism of the DNA-caffeine complex. A new method for determination of the ligand orientation. (6/3667)

Infrared linear dichroism (LD) measurements on films of the DNA-caffeine complex in terms of the relative humidity (r.h.) show two main effects. Firstly, there is an insertion of caffeine molecules into the DNA double helix (B form), as evidenced by a very strong parallel LD behaviour of the 745 cm-1 band due to the C-H out-of-plane deformation vibration of caffeine. Furthermore, a high r.h. values a modified B form occurs in the complex similar to the B form recently reported by BRAHMS and coworkers for DNA-polypeptide complexes. The reversible B-A transition of the DNA in dependence of the r.h. is not affected in general in the presence of caffeine.  (+info)

The sarcoplasmic reticulum and the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger both contribute to the Ca2+ transient of failing human ventricular myocytes. (7/3667)

Our objective was to determine the respective roles of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) and the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in the small, slowly decaying Ca2+ transients of failing human ventricular myocytes. Left ventricular myocytes were isolated from explanted hearts of patients with severe heart failure (n=18). Cytosolic Ca2+, contraction, and action potentials were measured by using indo-1, edge detection, and patch pipettes, respectively. Selective inhibitors of SR Ca2+ transport (thapsigargin) and reverse-mode Na+/Ca2+ exchange activity (No. 7943, Kanebo Ltd) were used to define the respective contribution of these processes to the Ca2+ transient. Ca2+ transients and contractions induced by action potentials (AP transients) at 0.5 Hz exhibited phasic and tonic components. The duration of the tonic component was determined by the action potential duration. Ca2+ transients induced by caffeine (Caf transients) exhibited only a phasic component with a rapid rate of decay that was dependent on extracellular Na+. The SR Ca2+-ATPase inhibitor thapsigargin abolished the phasic component of the AP Ca2+ transient and of the Caf transient but had no significant effect on the tonic component of the AP transient. The Na+/Ca2+ exchange inhibitor No. 7943 eliminated the tonic component of the AP transient and reduced the magnitude of the phasic component. In failing human myocytes, Ca2+ transients and contractions exhibit an SR-related, phasic component and a slow, reverse-mode Na+/Ca2+ exchange-related tonic component. These findings suggest that Ca2+ influx via reverse-mode Na+/Ca2+ exchange during the action potential may contribute to the slow decay of the Ca2+ transient in failing human myocytes.  (+info)

Effects of impaired Ca2+ homeostasis on contraction in postinfarction myocytes. (8/3667)

The significance of altered Ca2+ influx and efflux pathways on contractile abnormalities of myocytes isolated from rat hearts 3 wk after myocardial infarction (MI) was investigated by varying extracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]o, 0.6-5.0 mM) and pacing frequency (0.1-5.0 Hz). Myocytes isolated from 3-wk MI hearts were significantly longer than those from sham-treated (Sham) hearts (125 +/- 1 vs. 114 +/- 1 micrometer, P < 0.0001). At high [Ca2+]o and low pacing frequency, conditions that preferentially favored Ca2+ influx over efflux, Sham myocytes shortened to a greater extent than 3-wk MI myocytes. Conversely, under conditions that favored Ca2+ efflux (low [Ca2+]o and high pacing frequency), MI myocytes shortened more than Sham myocytes. At intermediate [Ca2+]o and pacing frequencies, differences in steady-state contraction amplitudes between Sham and MI myocytes were no longer significant. Collectively, the interpretation of these data was that Ca2+ influx and efflux pathways were subnormal in MI myocytes and that they contributed to abnormal cellular contractile behavior. Because Na+/Ca2+ exchange activity, but not whole cell Ca2+ current, was depressed in 3-wk MI rat myocytes, our results on steady-state contraction are consistent with, but not proof of, the hypothesis that depressed Na+/Ca2+ exchange accounted for abnormal contractility in MI myocytes. The effects of depressed Na+/Ca2+ exchange on MI myocyte mechanical activity were further evaluated in relaxation from caffeine-induced contractures. Because Ca2+ uptake by sarcoplasmic reticulum was inhibited by caffeine and with the assumption that intracellular Na+ and membrane potential were similar between Sham and MI myocytes, myocyte relaxation from caffeine-induced contracture can be taken as an estimate of Ca2+ extrusion by Na+/Ca2+ exchange. In MI myocytes, in which Na+/Ca2+ exchange activity was depressed, the half time of relaxation (1.54 +/- 0.14 s) was significantly (P < 0.02) prolonged compared with that measured in Sham myocytes (1.10 +/- 0.10 s).  (+info)

Positive effects of caffeine on long-term memory have been shown in a study analyzing habitual caffeine intake of coffee or tea in addition to consuming other substances. Their effect on cognitive processes was observed by performing numerous cognitive tasks. Words were presented and delayed recall was measured. Increased delayed recall was demonstrated by individuals with moderate to high habitual caffeine intake (mean 710 mg/week) as more words were successfully recalled compared to those with low habitual caffeine intake (mean 178 mg/week).[5] Therefore, improved performance in long-term memory was shown with increased habitual caffeine intake due to better storage or retrieval.[5] A similar study assessing effects of caffeine on cognition and mood resulted in improved delayed recall with caffeine intake. A dose-response relationship was seen as individuals were able to recall more words after a period of time with increased caffeine.[6] Improvement of long-term memory with caffeine intake ...

THURSDAY, April 15, 2021 (HealthDay News) - Even moderate daily caffeine intake during pregnancy may lead to smaller birth size, according to a study published online March 25 in JAMA Network Open.. Jessica L. Gleason, Ph.D., from the U.S. National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, and colleagues evaluated the association between maternal caffeine intake and neonatal anthropometry by fast or slow caffeine metabolism genotype. The study was a secondary analysis of data for 2,055 nonsmoking women (mean age, 28.3 years) at low risk for fetal growth abnormalities, who had complete information on caffeine consumption, from 12 U.S. clinical sites for a cohort study that assessed fetal growth (2009 to 2013).. The researchers found that compared with the first quartile of plasma caffeine level (≤28 ng/mL), neonates of women in the fourth quartile (,659 ng/mL) had lower birth weight (β = −84.3 g) and length (β = −0.44 cm), as well as smaller head (β = −0.28 cm), arm (β = −0.25 ...

Caffeine can be habit-forming, but it is not addictive. The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse reports that caffeine is considered to be a mild stimulant, but it does not have the qualities of addictive stimulants like cocaine and amphetamines.. However, sudden abstinence from caffeine can produce mild withdrawal symptoms, such as headache, restlessness and irritability, so its a good idea to slowly wean off caffeine over a week or two. The need to eliminate caffeine from your diet is not supported in the literature. In fact, studies show that moderate caffeine use can actually enhance your mood and improve focus and alertness. The American Dietetic Association suggests limiting caffeine intake to 200 to 300 mg (about two to three cups of coffee) per day. Lets take a look at some other myths about caffeine.. ■ Caffeine causes dehydration.. While caffeine is a diuretic, its effects are very mild. Like all diuretics, though, it will cause you to urinate more often and, therefore, lose ...
At the right levels, caffeine can improve your training and races. There are three proven advantages that caffeine has:. -Improving focus & mental performance. -Increasing physical endurance. -Reducing rate of perceived exertion. But there have also been studies done that show caffeine can help you recover. I will get into that later on.. To have these effects on your body the caffeine levels must be correct and taken at the right time. The right amount of caffeine is different for every person. However, studies have shown that 2-3mg per kilogram of body weight is optimal for sports performance. Having too little caffeine wont impact your training at all, but most of us are familiar with the side effects of having too much. For this reason it is important to track the amount of caffeine you are taking in.. I personally like to use caffeine pills before a race because I know the exact level. I will be trying a new kind of coffee called TrueStart coffee that gives you the caffeine levels in your ...
The present study had two main aims. The first was to examine associations between psychosocial factors, health-related behaviours, regular level of caffeine consumption, time of day and levels of caffeine in saliva following acute caffeine challenges. The second aim was to determine whether individual differences in changes in performance following ingestion of caffeine were related to levels of caffeine in saliva. One hundred and forty-four young adults participated in the study. Questionnaires were administered prior to the study to measure psychosocial characteristics, health-related behaviours and habitual levels of caffeine consumption. Two double-blind acute caffeine challenges were then carried out 1 week apart. Volunteers were given either placebo or 1.5 or 3 mg/kg of caffeine on each occasion. The challenges were carried out at 8 : 00, 11 : 00, 14 : 00 or 18 : 00 h so that the impact of time of day could be assessed. In the week between the two challenges the volunteers consumed either ...
Caffeine headaches are old indications of the caffeine withdrawal; they are a set of symptoms which can strike these people who reduce or stop permanently their supply of caffeine. These individuals who drink quite a lot of coffee on regular basis can build up caffeine headaches.. Caffeine blocks the action of adenosine which is a mixed element which usually expands blood liners. When people drink caffeine, their bloodlines squeeze, for a long time, and after that, the body will create sensitivity to adenosine in reaction to the steady blocking caused by caffeine. If a person stops drinking caffeine or they change their amount of drinking, the blood liners enlarge so much, so the sensitive increased on the body will allow the adenosine to work and so on the caffeine headache develops.. Someone with a caffeine headache can experience a soft headache which increases into a throbbing, regular pain. For the reason that people cannot understand how much caffeine can influence the body, they cannot ...
Caffeine is rapidly absorbed and crosses the placenta freely. After ingestion of 200 mg caffeine, intervillous blood flow in the placentahas been found to be reduced by 25%. Cytochrome P450 1A2, the principal enzyme involved in caffeine metabolism, is absent in the placenta and the foetus. The amount of caffeine and metabolites available to the foetoplacental unit therefore depends on the maternal caffeine metabolism, which shows marked variation between individuals, Varia¬tions in caffeine metabolic activity have been found to be more closely associated with foetal growth restriction than have blood caffeine concentrations ...
The mechanism by which caffeine may influence IOP and thereby alter the risk of glaucoma is not clear, particularly because of caffeines varied pharmacologic effects on cellular processes. For adverse effects, there is evidence that caffeine could elevate IOP by increasing aqueous humor formation. 31 Caffeine inhibits phosphodiesterase, which would result in maintaining high intracellular levels of cAMP of the ciliary body and possibly greater production of aqueous humor. 32 In animals exposed to caffeine, ultrastructural changes in the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium were observed which may increase aqueous transport. 33 In addition, acute caffeine increases blood pressure before causing elevations in IOP 10 12 ; increased blood pressure would increase the hydrostatic pressure for aqueous formation from plasma in the ciliary process capillary network. 34 The effect of caffeine in the aqueous outflow in not clear 31 35 36 ; one investigator hypothesized that caffeine may reduce outflow by ...
This study showed that the cardiovascular effects of caffeine differ as a function of gender, with the gender differences emerging after puberty. We also found differences as a function of menstrual cycle phase in postpubertal girls, with caffeine administration resulting in more pronounced effects on heart rate during the luteal phase but more pronounced effects on blood pressure during the follicular. These data suggest that there are gender differences in cardiovascular responses to caffeine and that these gender differences are related to pubertal development. More work needs to be done to understand the mechanisms underlying this association.. It is well established that acute caffeine administration increases blood pressure and decreases heart rate. Our findings confirm this in both pre- and postpubertal boys and girls. There have been few studies conducted in children that examined correlations between dietary caffeine intake and blood pressure. 14 , 15 Our previous study in 12- to ...
According to previous meta-analyses, coffee consumption reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, the underlying mechanism remains unknown. Whether caffeine, the key ingredient in coffee, has a beneficial effect on the glycemic homeostasis and the anti-diabetic effect is particularly controversial. The aim of this study was to summarize the effect of acute caffeine ingestion on insulin sensitivity in healthy men. A comprehensive literature search for papers published before April 2016 was conducted in EMBASE, PubMed, and Cochrane Library databases. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that investigated the effect of caffeine on insulin sensitivity in healthy humans without diabetes were included. A random effects meta-analysis was conducted using Review Manager 5.3. The search yielded 7 RCTs in which caffeine intake was the single variant. Compared with placebo, caffeine intake significantly decreased the insulin sensitivity index, with a standardized mean difference of −2.06 (95%

Okay, I know this article wont be popular. Most of us are so addicted to Caffeine that we dont want to know about it. I am writing this because when Caffeine Blues by Stephen Cherniske M.S.came out I just knew I had to read it. Several years ago I began to realize that coffee was much worse than we had been told, because I noticed that I got an arthritic pain in my wrist within ten to twenty minutes of a cappuccino!. This book didnt just tell me how bad coffee was - it told me how GOOD I would feel once I was totally caffeine free for two months. Somehow, this book sold me on giving it a try. And it was right! For example, I no longer have the drained feeling that I ...
Caffeine has been shown to reverse some of the performance-impairing effects of ethanol. However, it is not known whether this antagonistic effect of caffeine is mediated by a reduction in sleepiness. The present study assessed physiological alertness/sleepiness, memory, and psychomotor performance following the administration of placebo, ethanol, and caffeine+ethanol combinations. A total of 13 healthy individuals (21-35 years old) underwent four conditions presented in a Latin Square Design: placebo-placebo, ethanol (0.5 g/kg)-placebo, ethanol (0.5 g/kg)-caffeine 150 mg, and ethanol (0.5 g/kg)-caffeine 300-mg. The Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT), psychomotor performance battery, memory test, and mood/sleepiness questionnaires were administered following each condition. The peak breadth ethanol concentration (BrEC) was 0.043±0.0197% and did not differ among the three caffeine treatments. As expected, ethanol reduced mean latency on the MSLT. The lowest caffeine dose reversed this effect and the
Purpose: Inconsistent results among studies examining the effects of caffeine on exercise performance are potentially due to interindividual variability in biological responses to caffeine ingestion. The aims, therefore, of the present study were to identify high and low caffeine responders and compare the influence of caffeine on exercise performance and biological responses between groups during a simulated soccer-game protocol on treadmill. Methods: Well-trained soccer players were distinguished as high (n = 11) and low (n = 9) caffeine responders based on resting blood pressure, plasma glycerol, nonesterified fatty acid, and epinephrine responses to caffeine. Participants underwent 2 simulated soccer-game protocols on a treadmill after caffeine (6 mg·kg−1) or placebo ingestion. Exercise performance and several biological responses were evaluated. Results: Exercise performance did not differ between the high and low responders to caffeine (P , .05). However, time to fatigue (high, ...
Caffeine decreases exercise-induced hyperemic MBF, resulting in a significant decrease in physiologic MFR. This is significantly more pronounced at high-altitude exposure, where resting flow significantly increases and hyperemic flow response is blunted significantly more by caffeine than at normoxia. Although the long-term effect of caffeine consumption on human health is the subject of an ongoing controversy (27,28), we have studied the acute impact of caffeine consumption on MBF and found no significant increase in resting MBF by caffeine during normoxia, in agreement with Bottcher et al. (13). By contrast, at hypoxia-with which resting MBF was higher than at normoxia, in line with our previous results (21)-we found an increase in resting MBF after caffeine. This may in part be explained by the fact that caffeine might stimulate local and systemic catecholamine release (7), adding to the hypoxia-induced sympathetic activation, which contributes importantly to the regulation of MBF ...
The identification of the adenosine-A2AR pathway as an important physiological down-regulatory mechanism of inflammatory responses (12, 15) prompted us to examine naturally abundant compounds that can be antagonists of A2AR. Among this class of compounds, caffeine is the most widely consumed compound principally from beverages. We found that the injection of caffeine significantly increased liver damage in T cell-dependent hepatitis models (Figs. 1⇑ and 2⇑). The same dose of caffeine could also enhance liver damage when administered orally (data not shown). The increase of liver damage by caffeine could be explained by uninhibited proinflammatory responses. By acting as an A2AR antagonist, caffeine might have disabled the adenosine-mediated anti-inflammatory mechanism (1, 12). In agreement with this mechanism of action, there was the enhanced expression of proinflammatory cytokines in mice coinjected with caffeine (Fig. 1⇑, C and D).. These effects of caffeine are similar to the ...
So you can safely enjoy the boost and benefits of caffeine, you should limit your intake to no more than 400mg daily. The daily limit should factor in all the caffeine sources you drink and eat. This includes coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, energy drinks, caffeine pills, and any other caffeine sources you may consume regularly.. What does 400mg of caffeine equivalent to? Depending on how the beans were roasted and how the coffee was brewed, 400mg of caffeine is approximately four cups of brewed coffee.. That amount of caffeine is also present in around eight cups of brewed black tea and 13 cups of brewed green tea. Youll have to drink five 20oz servings of Diet Coke to get that much caffeine, as well as five 8oz bottles of Red Bull energy drink.. If you want to know more about the caffeine content of a lot of the food and drinks we consume on a daily basis, you can find more information on how much caffeine popular caffeinated foods and drinks have in this caffeine chart.. How do you get started ...
Keywords: Caffeine; heart rate variability; healthy volunteers. Introduction. The caffeine is one of the most widely used pharmacologically active substances. It has many different physiological effects on the cardiovascular function. Also the cardiac autonomic control could be altered by caffeine consumption. However, findings regarding the effect of caffeine consumption on cardiac autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity are controversial. The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of caffeine on cardiac ANS in young healthy subjects. Methods and Materials. In sixteen healthy volunteers (7 women), age 24-35, the electrocardiogram (ECG) was recorded continuously at rest before as well as 30 min and 60 min after caffeine ingestion (200 mg of caffeine in 50 ml of water). Before each the beginning of ECG registration the arterial blood pressure was measured. As assessment of cardiac ANS activity the power spectral analysis (autoregressive spectra) and the Poincaré plot analysis of the ...

Caffeine has long been suspect of causing mal-formations in fetus, and that it may reduce fertility rates.. These reports have proved controversial. What is known is that caffeine does causes malformations in rats, when ingested at rates comparable to 70 cups a day for humans. Many other species respond equally to such large amounts of caffeine.. Data is scant, as experimentation on humans is not feasible. In any case moderation in caffeine ingestion seems to be a prudent course for pregnant women. Recent references are Pastore and Savitz, Case-control study of caffeinated beverages and preterm delivery. American Journal of Epidemiology, Jan 1995.. A recent study found a weak link between Sudden-Infant-Death-Syndrome (SIDS) and caffeine consumption by the mother, which reinforces the recommendation for moderation -possibly even abstinence- above.. On men, it has been shown that caffeine reduces rates of sperm motility which may account for some findings of reduced fertility.. ...
Caffeines ability to help people stay awake is one of its most prized qualities.. On the other hand, too much caffeine can make it difficult to get enough restorative sleep.. Studies have found that higher caffeine intake appears to increase the amount of time it takes to fall asleep. It may also decrease total sleeping time, especially in the elderly (13Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source).. By contrast, low or moderate amounts of caffeine dont seem to affect sleep very much in people considered good sleepers, or even those with self-reported insomnia (15Trusted Source).. You may not realize that too much caffeine is interfering with your sleep if you underestimate the amount of caffeine youre taking in.. Although coffee and tea are the most concentrated sources of caffeine, it is also found in soda, cocoa, energy drinks and several types of medication.. For example, an energy shot may contain up to 350 mg of caffeine, while some energy drinks provide as much as a whopping 500 mg per can ...
Caffeinated foods and beverages can be consumed by the general healthy population. Caffeine is found in various foods and beverages that can be consumed as part of an overall healthful diet, along with regular physical activity. Knowing how much caffeine you are consuming each day from all sources will help ensure you are consuming moderate amounts.. While caffeine is not an essential nutrient, moderate caffeine consumption has been associated with reduced risk of some non-communicable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and Alzheimers disease.. Whether its a latte, soda, or energy drink, when enjoying a caffeinated beverage, keep the amount of caffeine per serving in mind. Despite common misperception, an 8-ounce energy drink contains about the same amount of caffeine as an 8-ounce cup of home-brewed coffee* - about 100 milligrams (Remember, moderate daily consumption is 300-400 mg for the average healthy adult).. Some people may need to avoid or limit caffeine consumption due to ...

Recently, caffeinated energy products have been coming under increased political and regulatory scrutiny because of the potential health risks associated with consuming large amounts of caffeine.. The results of our clinical study of PURENERGY™ validate its suitability as an alternative to ordinary caffeine in energy drinks and other energy products, said Frank Jaksch, ChromaDexs co-founder and CEO. PURENERGY™ balances the consumers desire to feel the effects of caffeine with the pressure consumer product companies are under to reduce caffeine levels in finished products.. In conjunction with the clinical evaluation, ChromaDex commissioned Ipsos to conduct a national consumer survey of the caffeine consumption habits and attitudes of the American public. The survey reveals that although most Americans are committed to their daily caffeine habit, they would be interested in a product with less caffeine that delivers a sustained energy boost, but without the negative side effects ...
In addition to use as a stimulant and flavoring agent, caffeine is included in many over-the-counter headache remedies. Plants produce caffeine to deter pests and to prevent nearby seeds from germinating. Just as with other addictive substances, caffeine may become physically addictive. The molecule was first isolated by the German chemist Friedrich Ferdinand Runge in 1819. Caffeine also limits germination of seeds near the plant that could grow to compete for resources. In the last issue we briefly discussed the role of quinic, caffeic, and citric acid and its role in coffees flavor. Caffeine occurs in tea, coffee, guarana, maté, kola nuts, and cacao. In humans, it stimulates the. caffeine -> 1,3,7-trimethylurate PlantCyc 1-3-7-TRIMETHYLXANTHINE: caffeine + a demethylated methyl donor -> theophylline + a methylated methyl donor PlantCyc 1-3-7-TRIMETHYLXANTHINE: Central nervous system stimulant.

The objective of this investigation is to explore the interaction of water and caffeine on voice performance through (a) acoustic measures of voice, and (b) aerodynamic measurements (minimum lung pressure required to initiate phonation. The acoustic and aerodynamic measurements were selected for this study in an effort to demonstrate the effects of four levels of hydration and caffeine status on voice quality: 1) caffeine and water1 (i.e.., Experimental Group 1 - ingestion of 200 mg of caffeine in conjunction with 500 ml of water), 2) caffeine and water2 (i.e., Experimental Group 2 - ingestion of 200 mg of caffeine in conjunction with 1.0 liter of water), 3)caffeine only (i.e., Experimental Group 3: ingestion of 200 mg of caffeine and no water), and 4) control (i.e. no ingestion of caffeine or water). The research question involves whether systemic hydration may reduce degradation on voice performance caused by caffeine ingestion. It is hypothesized that the hydration conditions will result in a ...
Natural News) There is good news for people on a diet who want to cut down on their consumption of caffeine. A recent Australian study suggested that caffeine withdrawals can be overcome by the power of the mind.. Researchers from the University of Sydney conducted an experiment involving 48 people who consumed large amounts of caffeine. Each participant drank at least 270 milligrams of caffeine each day, the equivalent of three cups of coffee.. The Australian investigators wished to determine if caffeine withdrawal is real or imaginary. They told each participant about the dose reductions and measured how that affected the persons own opinion on the severity of his withdrawal.. The researchers assigned the participants into two groups at random. Both groups went through the same caffeine reduction plan for five days.. During the first day, the participants received one cup of coffee in the morning and a second cup during the afternoon. Their caffeine intake totaled 300 mg.. They continued to ...
Caffeine may help patients wake up more quickly after general anesthesia, an animal study suggests.. Adult rats were given a 3 percent concentration of a general anesthetic for one hour to simulate effects of a brief surgical procedure. During the last 10 minutes of anesthetic exposure, they received either an injection of either caffeine or a salt solution.. The experiment was repeated three times with increasingly higher amounts of caffeine. Each time, rats in the caffeine group woke faster than the others. At the highest dose, the rats in the caffeine group woke up 55 percent sooner than the control group.. Read more ...
The reasons that caffeine can harm a fetus have been suspected for some time. Caffeine crosses through the placenta to the fetus, but can be difficult for the fetus to metabolize because of the under-developed metabolic system. Caffeine also may influence cell development and decrease placental blood flow, which may lead to an adverse effect on fetal development.. Women in the study were asked about their intake of caffeinated beverages as well as the type of their drinks, timing of initial drink, the frequency and amount of intake, and whether they changed consumption patterns since becoming pregnant. Sources of caffeine included coffee, tea, caffeinated soda and hot chocolate.. Researchers estimated the amount of caffeine intake in various types of beverages using the following conversion: For every 150 milliliters of beverage, 100 milligrams for caffeinated coffee, 2 milligrams for decaffeinated coffee, 39 milligrams for caffeinated tea, 15 milligrams for caffeinated soda, and 2 milligrams ...
The study involved 35 subjects between the ages of 18 and 50, half men and half women, who attended eight laboratory sessions, 60 to 75 minutes in length, over the course of two weeks. All were asked to abstain from caffeine for 24 hours before each session and asked to refrain from engaging in physical activities on the day of their visits.. At each session, half the participants were given caffeine (3 mg/kg) and half a placebo in a sports drink. At the sessions, participants completed treadmill walking at 60 percent to 70 percent of their maximal heart rate at baseline and for six of the seven subsequent visits. To investigate the potential synergistic effects of acute and chronic caffeine on self-determined exercise duration, participants were re-randomized to either the same or different condition for the last (or eighth) visit, creating four chronic/acute treatment groups (placebo/placebo, placebo/caffeine, caffeine/placebo, caffeine/caffeine). That is, they received placebo all along, then ...
Caffeine is a wonderful, wonderful thing, but its only wonderful in moderation. Given the proliferation of caffeinated products, like caffeine marshmallows and caffeine-laced alcohol, its no wonder that people are becoming immune to the dangers that caffeine may pose in megadoses. Were not just talking dangerous to others via caffeine psychosis, were talking dangerous to yourself: in April, 23-year-old Michael Bedford died as a result of consuming spoonfuls of caffeine powder with the strength of 70 Red Bulls.. Apparently, you can just buy bags of powdered, concentrated caffeine online, and thats what Bedford did. He then took the caffeine to a party, ate a few spoonfuls of it, then immediately had an adverse reaction. At the reading of the inquest last week, coroner Dr. Nigel Chapman intoned, This should serve as a warning that caffeine is so freely available on the Internet but so lethal if the wrong dosage is taken.. In laymans terms, dont eat powdered caffeine because you might die ...
Contrary to long-standing concerns about the stimulant effect of caffeine sparking atrial fibrillation, a new analysis concludes that it s unlikely habitual caffeine intake from coffee and other dietary sources increases risk. In fact, the pooled analysis found that atrial fibrillation risk fell with increasing caffeine intake.
If youre like myself or like nearly 80 percent of the adult population, your day doesnt start until youre able to get a little caffeine in your system. Whether you get it from coffee, soda, or tea you probably look to caffeine to jump start your morning and help you become alert, energized, and focused. But the truth is too much caffeine can be bad for your health.. For almost all of us, we dont think of our coffee or other forms of caffeine as a bad thing. I mean, come on, most of us look at a large iced vanilla coffee from Starbucks as our savior each morning. Lets just put out there, this blog is not to shame your coffee drinking. At least not until a cup of coffee a day turns into 3 cups of coffee and 2 sodas and maybe a cup or 2 of tea. Suddenly the recommended 200mg of caffeine is out the window and were now consuming somewhere between the 600-800mg area.. Here are a few ways why too much caffeine can be bad for your health and how to tell if youre consuming more than your body can ...
While caffeine levels can vary tremendously between different brands of coffee, an 8-ounce cup of brewed coffee generally contains anywhere from 80-135 mg of caffeine, while the caffeine content of an 8-ounce cup of drip coffee is between 115-175 mg. Each serving of Espresso Hammer Gel contains 50 mg of caffeine. Each serving of Tropical Hammer Gel contains 25 mg of caffeine. ...
With a reasonable amount of consumption of caffeine (approximately 250 mg) individuals will notice that they feel less sleepy and are more alert. It is important to note that if used in moderation, caffeine will rarely show any negative side effects. Caffeine itself is a byproduct of plants that is generally found in coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate, and cocoa powder. There are also many over-the-counter and prescription drugs that use caffeine to help boost the bodys immune system. Considering that a reasonable dose of caffeine can be beneficial, it is commonly added to a variety of different things that you could find in your local supermarket.. The most popular way to ingest caffeine is through coffee which is a beverage that is brewed with an extraordinarily strong flavor. It is derived from a variety of roasted seeds that are generally found in Latin America, although there are over 70 countries that grow coffee plants. As the number one agricultural commodity around the world, many ...
A new study finds that people with early Parkinsons disease have significantly lower levels of caffeine in their blood compared to those without the disease, even if they consume the same amount of caffeine. The findings, published in the journal Neurology, suggest that testing the blood for caffeine levels may

The brand names are pulsing with power: Surge, Zapped, Full Speed, Outburst. And Josta is laced with both caffeine and the pick-me-up herb guarana, which is hyped as raw, primal power. Is it any wonder caffeine consumption is on the rise among kids? By Helen Cordes ANYONE REMEMBER when caffeine was off-limits for children? (Itll stunt your growth!) These days constraints on caffeine consumption for kids and young teens are nonexistent. Kids are having caffeine early and often--high-octane Mountain Dew is the preferred soda of the under-6 set--and in much bigger doses than before. Caffeine Inc. is raking it in, often targeting teens and younger kids, and while Coca-Colas polar bears get the attention, studies showing the negative consequences of child caffeination are virtually ignored. Look at fast-food joints, convenience stores, and restaurants, where many kids get up to 40 percent of their meals. Its common to see young children and teens downing big gulp-size caffeinated sodas or ...
Caffeine (say: KA-feen) is a natural chemical found in tea leaves, coffee beans, cacao (the stuff used to make chocolate), and kola nuts (the plant that gives cola soda its flavor). Caffeine has been in foods that humans eat and drink for hundreds of years. Today, caffeine is found in many common foods and drinks, such as coffee, tea, energy drinks, hot cocoa, soda, chocolate, and some medicines.. Caffeine is a stimulant (say: STIM-yuh-lunt). Stimulants make us feel more awake and alert. Many people have drinks with caffeine because they think it helps them to wake up and feel sharper. But no one needs caffeinated (say: KA-fuh-nay-ted) drinks, especially kids. The best drinks for kids are water and milk, which dont contain caffeine.. People who drink caffeine every day may start to depend on it. If regular caffeine users dont get their daily dose, look out! People who are used to caffeine and dont get it can have headaches or trouble focusing, and feel tired or grumpy all day long.. ...

Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. Thats roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two energy shot drinks. Although caffeine use may be safe for adults, its not a good idea for children. And adolescents should limit themselves to no more than 100 mg of caffeine a day. Even among adults, heavy caffeine use can cause unpleasant side effects. And caffeine may not be a good choice for people who are highly sensitive to its effects or who take certain medications. Read on to see if you may need to limit or even end your caffeine routine. ...

Think you live on caffeine? Youre still no match for a newly described bitty bacteria called Pseudomonas putida CBB5. These little guys can feast on pure caffeine all day--and presumably all night--long. And researchers have now located just how they accomplish this arguably admirable feat.. Celebrated and cursed, caffeine is actually an alluring blend of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen, and the clever bacterium uses specialized enzymes as it breaks caffeine down into carbon dioxide and ammonia, Ryan Summers, a doctoral researcher in chemical and biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa, said in a prepared statement.. [More] ...
Extensive research has shown that moderate caffeine consumption is not a health risk, and that there is no scientific link between moderate caffeine consumption and the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease or osteoporosis. For an adult, a moderate daily caffeine intake is generally understood to be about 300 mg a day, which is approximately 6 cups of brewed, hot tea or 3 cups of coffee a day.. No decaffeinated tea or coffee is completely caffeine free. Decaffeinated tea, like decaffeinated coffee, typically has about 4mg of caffeine per cup.. ...
By Amy Norton. NEW YORK -- Energy drinks that promise to boost performance and rev up metabolism can contain three to four times as much caffeine as a typical soda, a new study shows.. The concern, researchers say, is that consumers who are vulnerable to the ill effects of caffeine -- including children, pregnant women and people with cardiovascular disease -- may unknowingly ingest large amounts.. Energy drinks like Red Bull, Red Devil and Sobe No Fear typically contain a mix of carbohydrates, B vitamins, amino acids and caffeine. Manufacturers claim the beverages boost physical performance, concentration, metabolism and a blue mood.. So its not surprising that energy drinks would contain large amounts of caffeine, said study co-author Dr. Bruce A. Goldberger of the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville.. But the actual caffeine dose might surprise some consumers, he told Reuters Health.. Given the danger of high caffeine intake to some people, energy drinks should be ...

Consumers may be unaware of the caffeine content of their energy drink because the labels on these beverages do not always list their caffeine content; furthermore, when the caffeine content is listed, it may be inaccurate. This finding was released on October 25 in Consumer Reports magazine. The Consumer Reports study noted that 11 of the 27 top-selling energy drinks in the US do not specify the amount of caffeine in their beverages. Furthermore, of the 16 drinks that did list a specific caffeine amount, five had more caffeine per serving than was listed and the average amount of caffeine excess was greater than 20%.. Some consumers may not even be aware that energy drinks usually contain caffeine and other may lack concern for the caffeine content of the beverage. However, inaccuracy in the labeling of caffeine content can be detrimental to ones health. For example individuals with certain heart conditions or glaucoma can be adversely impacted by caffeine. Currently, US health regulators are ...
Research reports on pulmonary function measurements often mention caffeine abstinence as a condition for testing subjects. Yet, the effects of caffeine on respiration are not well documented. This study was intended to investigate the physiological effects of caffeine on respiratory resistance measurements and the necessity of caffeine avoidance in such testing. Thirty-one subjects were administered caffeine in pill form for dosages in the range of 3 - 4.5 mg/kg body weight. Respiratory resistance was measured with the Airflow Perturbation Device every 15 minutes after caffeine ingestion until a full hour of elapsed time. No changes were noted in inhalation, exhalation, and average respiratory resistances during the times of measurements. The conclusion is that for low dosages of caffeine, respiratory resistance measurements are not affected by caffeine ingestion prior to testing.
I am going to start the new year out right and try to eliminate caffeine. I do love chocolate, and I know it contains caffeine, so I am wondering how much caffeine is in chocolate compared to coffee, tea and colas? Where do herbal teas fit in as far as caffeine levels?. Great news for you and all of those chocolate lovers out there who are also limiting their caffeine. Chocolate contains less caffeine than tea, coffee, colas and energy drinks. Based on average servings, according to the Mayo Clinic a 1-ounce bar of milk chocolate contains 6 milligrams of caffeine (white chocolate contains no caffeine, and dark chocolate contains 7 milligrams) as compared to an 8-ounce cup of coffee that contains more than 94 milligrams of caffeine. An 8-ounce serving of green tea contains approximately 40 milligrams. For an 8-ounce serving of black tea or a diet soda, each contains 47 milligrams of caffeine. Oh, and for your information, an average 8-ounce energy drink contains approximately 77 milligrams of ...
Caffeine, used in many pain medications as an adjuvant analgesic, is an adenosine A1 and A2A receptor antagonist. Here we examined the effects of acute or chronic caffeine administration in rats after partial sciatic nerve injury. The hindpaw response to mechanical or cold stimulation was assessed following photochemically induced sciatic nerve injury which leads to hypersensitivity to these stimuli. Caffeine was administered i.p. acutely or in the drinking water chronically. The mechanical and cold hypersensitivity of sciatic nerve-injured rats was dose-dependently alleviated by acute systemic administration of caffeine (10-80 mg/kg). The effect of caffeine was, however, associated with side effects including locomotor stimulation or depression. Chronic oral administration (average daily doses 27.5 mg/kg/day or 61.5 mg/kg/day for 2 weeks) of caffeine starting at the time of nerve injury did not significantly affect the development of pain-like behaviors. Thus, acute, but not long term, caffeine ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronic caffeine exposure in rats blocks a subsequent nicotine-conditioned taste avoidance in a one-bottle, but not a two-bottle test. AU - Palmatier, Matthew I.. AU - Bevins, Rick A. PY - 2001/11/21. Y1 - 2001/11/21. N2 - Two experiments were conducted in order to investigate nicotine-conditioned taste avoidance (CTA) following chronic preexposure to caffeine. Rats were given daily intraperitoneal injections of caffeine anhydrous (0, 10, or 30 mg/kg) for 10 or 30 days. Training of the nicotine-CTA began after the last day of caffeine preexposure. On five separate occasions access to a saccharin solution was followed immediately by an injection of 1.2 mg/kg nicotine hydrogen tartrate salt or saline. Nicotine-CTA readily developed in saline-preexposed controls. That is, paired rats drank less saccharin solution than unpaired rats after repeated saccharin-nicotine pairings. A similar pattern of nicotine-CTA was found for rats preexposed to 30 mg/kg caffeine for 10 days. Following ...
One multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial compared caffeine citrate to placebo in eighty-five (85) preterm infants (gestational age 28 to ,33 weeks) with apnea of prematurity. Apnea of prematurity was defined as having at least 6 apnea episodes of greater than 20 seconds duration in a 24-hour period with no other identifiable cause of apnea. A 1 mL/kg (20 mg/kg caffeine citrate providing 10 mg/kg as caffeine base) loading dose of caffeine citrate was administered intravenously, followed by a 0.25 mL/kg (5 mg/kg caffeine citrate providing 2.5 mg/kg of caffeine base) daily maintenance dose administered either intravenously or orally (generally through a feeding tube). The duration of treatment in this study was limited to 10 to 12 days. The protocol allowed infants to be rescued with open-label caffeine citrate treatment if their apnea remained uncontrolled during the double-blind phase of the trial.. The percentage of patients without apnea on day 2 of treatment (24-48 hours after the ...
Natural News) Researchers have found another supplement ideal for athletes: caffeine. A systematic review published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition has determined that caffeine supplements can improve strength, power, and endurance in combat sports athletes.. For the review, researchers from Spain and the U.S. looked at nine studies published since 2010 that evaluated the effect of caffeine on the performance of athletes in combat sports. The studies examined 109 participants in total: 42 were Brazilian jiu-jitsu athletes, 33 were taekwondo athletes, and 34 were judo athletes. The studies examined caffeine at doses of 3 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg), 4 mg/kg, 5 mg/kg, and 6 mg/kg at different times before exercise testing.. Six of these studies presented a positive correlation between caffeine, physical performance, stamina, and recovery. The researchers found that caffeine doses of 3 to 6 mg/kg have been linked to increased glycolytic activity or breakdown of ...
It was recently reported that caffeine may reduce the clinical symptoms of asthma and may prevent the clinical manifestations of this disease. The effect of caffeine on histamine responsiveness is unknown. The effect of caffeine (5 mg/kg) and placebo on histamine responsiveness (the provocation concentration causing a 20% fall in FEV1, PC20) was studied in 10 subjects with mild asthma (prechallenge FEV1 84% of predicted value). The PC20 for histamine bronchoprovocation after caffeine ingestion was 2.65 (95% confidence limits 0.99, 7.10) mg/ml. After placebo the PC20 was 1.89 (0.96, 3.71) mg/ml. It is concluded that caffeine in a dose equivalent to about three cups of coffee has a very small effect, if any, on histamine bronchoprovocation in those with mild asthma. Specific instructions about not having drinks containing caffeine before histamine challenge are therefore not necessary.. ...

Caffeine amounts now appear on many soft drinks. Its part of a voluntary, industry-wide action by the American Beverage Association. The ABA is a trade group whose members include Coke, Pepsi and manufacturers of non-alcoholic beverages, including energy drinks and tea.. By volunteering to list caffeine amounts, the beverage industry creates a win-win situation. With this information, people looking to limit caffeine consumption can choose their products, as can people seeking to increase their caffeine consumption. At the same time, beverage companies have successfully prevented mandatory government regulation.. So, the amount of caffeine in energy drinks remains unlimited, and existing regulations on cola drinks are also unchanged. The only difference is that North American consumers can now see in real numbers the amount of caffeine per serving. (The ABA move applies mainly to beverages in the U.S. and Canada, and not necessarily to other nations.) But the decision to list caffeine on a soft ...

But even if coffee doesnt make you expend more calories in the long term, there is still a possibility that it blunts appetite and helps you eat less.. In one study, caffeine had an appetite-reducing effect in men, but not in women, making them eat less at a meal following caffeine consumption. Namun, another study showed no effect on men.. Whether coffee or caffeine can help you lose weight in the long term may depend on the individual. Pada saat ini, there is no evidence of such long-term effects.. People may build up a tolerance to the effects of caffeine. Untuk alasan ini, drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages may be an ineffective weight-loss strategy in the long term.. Even though caffeine can boost your metabolism in the short term, this effect is diminished in long-term coffee drinkers due to tolerance..

Caffeine is a commonplace central nervous system stimulant drug which occurs in nature as part of the coffee, tea, yerba mate and other plants. It is also an additive in many consumer products, most notably beverages advertised as energy drinks. Caffeine is also added to sodas such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, where, on the ingredients listing, it is designated as a flavoring agent, due to pure caffeine powder having a bitter flavour. Caffeines mechanism of action is somewhat different from that of cocaine and the substituted amphetamines; caffeine blocks adenosine receptors A and A2A. Adenosine is a by-product of cellular activity, and stimulation of adenosine receptors produces feelings of tiredness and the need to sleep. Caffeines ability to block these receptors means the levels of the bodys natural stimulants, dopamine and norepinephrine, continue at higher levels. Mild physical dependence can result from excessive caffeine intake. Caffeine addiction, or a pathological and compulsive form of ...
STUDY QUESTION: Is caffeine and caffeinated beverage consumption associated with the risk of spontaneous abortion (SAB)? SUMMARY ANSWER: While preconceptional caffeine consumption was not materially associated with an increased risk of SAB, consumption during early pregnancy was associated with a small increased risk of SAB, although the relation was not linear. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Caffeine has been hypothesized as a risk factor for SAB since the 1980s; however, results from previous studies have been conflicting.

THURSDAY, Oct. 20, 2016 (HealthDay News) - Eating a Mediterranean diet and consuming caffeine may lower your chances of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness, according to a new study.. Previous research has shown that a Mediterranean diet-high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, healthy fats and fish-benefits the heart and lowers cancer risk. But there has been little research on whether it helps protect against eye diseases such as AMD, the researchers noted.. Using questionnaires, the researchers assessed the diets of 883 people, aged 55 and older, in Portugal. Of those, 449 had early stage AMD and 434 did not have the eye disease.. Closely following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a 35 percent lower risk of AMD, and eating lots of fruit was especially beneficial.. The researchers also found that people who consumed high levels of caffeine seemed to have a lower risk of AMD. Among those who consumed high levels of caffeine (about 78 ...
The actions of caffeine as an antagonist of adenosine receptors have been extensively studied, and there is no doubt that both daily and sporadic dietary consumption of caffeine has substantial biological effects on the nervous system. The current opinion is that caffeine both can cure and trigger headaches. Caffeine is a component of many combination drugs marketed for the relief of headaches, but on the other hand it is strongly incriminated as a risk factor for developing chronic headache. Withdrawal may cause symptom constellations similar to the migraine syndrome. Further, caffeine consumption may affect sleep and alertness, possibly influencing the risk of migraine attacks ...

In this prospective study in diabetic men, higher habitual coffee consumption was not associated with a higher risk of CVD or all-cause mortality. We did not find significant associations for decaffeinated coffee or total caffeine intake either.. Coffee is a major source of caffeine. Several studies showed that caffeine acutely impaired postprandial glucose metabolism in diabetic patients (8,9). In addition, concerns have been raised in short-term trials that caffeine increases blood pressure (10) and homocysteine levels (11). However, findings from short-term caffeine intervention studies cannot be extrapolated to the effects of chronic coffee consumption on risk of CVD. First, physiological effects of coffee can be different from those of caffeine. It has been shown that caffeine results in a larger increase in epinephrine concentrations than intake of the same amount of caffeine in coffee (12). Moreover, coffee contains various substances such as antioxidants (i.e., chlorogenic acid) that may ...
Caffeine (10 mM) stimulated the outputs of prostaglandin (PG) F2α, PGE2 and PGI2 (measured as 6-keto-PGF1α) from the day 7 and day 15 guinea-pig uterus superfused in vitro. Caffeine-induced PG production was unaffected by the removal of extracellular calcium, ryanodine (RY) and ruthenium red (inhibitors of calcium release from ryanodine receptor (RYR) channel, and calmodulin inhibitors (W-7 and trifluoperazine (TFP)). In fact, W-7 greatly potentiated the caffeine effect on PGF2α output. TMB-8, an intracellular calcium antagonist, inhibited the increase in PGF2α output produced by caffeine without preventing the increases in outputs of PGE2 and 6-keto-PGF1α. Caffeine (1 mM but not 0.1 mM) and theophylline (Theo.; 10 mM) also stimulated PG outputs from the day 7 guinea-pig uterus superfused in vitro. Caffeine and RY both stimulated prostaglandin production by the perfused mesenteric vascular bed of the rat. Caffeine (10 mM) stimulated the output of PGF2α after 8 h, and the output of ...
Tea and coffee are the most commonly used beverages throughout the world. Both decoctions are rich in small organic molecules such as phenolics/polyphenolics, purine alkaloids, many methylxanthines, substituted benzoic and cinnamic acids. Many of these molecules are physiologically chemopreventive and chemoprotective agents against many severe conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinsonism, inflammation, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disorders, bradycardia, fatigue, muscular relaxation, and oxidative stress. Caffeine, a purine alkaloid, is a common metabolite of both tea and coffee aqueous decoctions and its concentration in tea/coffee depends on the fermentation process, preparation of the water extract and quality of tea leaves/coffee beans. A 250 ml of a coffee cup contains 100-150 mg caffeine while the same volume of strong tea contains 25-40 mg caffeine.  The present paper presents the potential of caffeine as a potent chemopreventive agent that can be used for numerous physiological

AU - Gean, Po Wu. PY - 1999/12/31. Y1 - 1999/12/31. N2 - Caffeine which is present in soft drinks has been shown to increase alertness and allays drowsiness and fatigue. The aim of this study is to investigate whether caffeine could produce a long-term effect on the synaptic transmission using extracellular recording technique in the hippocampal slices. Bath application of caffeine (100 μM) reversibly increased the slope of field excitatory postsynaptic potential (fEPSP) Forskolin (25 μM) by its own did not affect the fEPSP significantly. However, in the presence of caffeine, forskolin induced a long-term potentiation (LTP) of fEPSP. Enprofylline which has been shown to exhibit some actions like caffeine but with a low adenosine antagonistic potency did not affect the normal synaptic transmission or the effect of ...

While caffeine is one of the most ancient and well-known drugs with a strong effect on body, not many people know that there is a brand and generic medication, based on this active substance. Caffeine medication is sold under the brand name Cafergot, and is often used to treat and prevent migraine headaches. Its much more effective than just coffee, because of the reasonably high concentration of caffeine and the combination of it with ergotamine, another important substance in the drugs compound.. So, why would someone want to purchase Cafergot (Caffeine/Ergotamine)? The answer is simple: there is no more effective solution to soothe headaches, fight migraines and improve the overall health status of patients with hypotension and associated problems. The combination of two vasoconstrictors (caffeine and ergotamine, both of which act by narrowing the clearance of blood vessels) is extremely effective; at the same time, both substances have natural origin and cause few side effects, combining ...
Most commercial products for snail and slug control contain either metaldehyde or methiocarb as the active ingredient, the residues of which are not permitted in food crops in the United States. We have discovered that solutions of caffeine are effective in killing or repelling slugs and snails when applied to foliage or the growing medium of plants. Because caffeine is a natural product and is classified by the US Food and Drug Administration as a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) compound, it has potential as an environmentally acceptable alternative toxicant for the control of slugs and snails on food crops. While field-testing caffeine as a toxicant against an introduced frog pest that infests potted plants in Hawaii, we discovered that large slugs were killed by spray applications containing 1-2% caffeine. To test whether caffeine solutions could be used to remove or kill large slugs that attack potted plants, we allowed Veronicella cubensis (Pfeiffer) to bury themselves in the soil in the
Influence of caffeine and hyaluronic acid on collagen biosynthesis in human skin fibroblasts Magdalena Donejko,1 Andrzej Przylipiak,1 Edyta Rysiak,2 Katarzyna Gluszuk,2 Arkadiusz Surazynski2 1Department of Esthetic Medicine, 2Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Medical University of Bialystok, Bialystok, Poland Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of caffeine on collagen biosynthesis in human skin fibroblasts and the influence of hyaluronic acid (HA) on this process. Materials and methods: Collagen, [3H]-thymidine incorporation, and prolidase activity were measured in confluent human skin fibroblast cultures that had been treated with 1, 2, and 5 mM caffeine and with caffeine and 500 µg/mL HA. Western immunoblot analysis was performed to evaluate expression of ß1-integrin receptor, insulin-like growth factor receptor phospho-Akt protein and mitogen-activated protein kinase (phospho-extracellular signal-regulated kinase). Results: Caffeine inhibited collagen
Caffeine - There are many conflicting studies about caffeine and pregnancy and some believe that caffeine is not as harmful as it was once thought to be. Nevertheless, the FDA warns against caffeine consumption during pregnancy and suggests quitting or reducing consumption at the very least. Caffeine has been shown to affect fetal heart rates and awake time (fetuses grow when sleeping). Decaffeinated coffee can also be harmful since producers often add additional chemicals to remove the caffeine. Caffeine can also increase risk of stretch marks. Suddenly quitting coffee intake can cause headaches; so most experts recommend gradually reducing the amount consumed ...

DARIEN, IL - A new study found that after restricting sleep to 5 hours per night, caffeine use no longer improved alertness or performance after three nights. Results show that relative to placebo, caffeine significantly improved Psychomotor Vigilance Task (PVT) performance during the first 2 days, but not the last 3 days of sleep restriction. We were particularly surprised that the performance advantage conferred by two daily 200 mg doses of caffeine was lost after three nights of sleep restriction, said lead author Tracy Jill Doty, PhD, research scientist at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. These results are important, because caffeine is a stimulant widely used to counteract performance decline following periods of restricted sleep. The data from this study suggests that the same effective daily dose of caffeine is not sufficient to prevent performance decline over multiple days of restricted sleep.. The research abstract was published recently in an online supplement of the ...
Caffeine is the major drug additive in todays food supply, and it is fast becoming a major concern for the Food and Drug Administration. As a food additive, caffeine is used to give you that zest for life, or the zing, as the advertisements so aptly put it. It is a strong stimulant to the central nervous system and is closely related to chemicals that become part of DNA, the genetic material of our cells. In the last several years, many studies have been done on the results of large caffeine intake, and interesting information is available to the public. Caffeine has been linked to birth defects, insomnia, anxiety and hypertension and fibrocystic breast disease with an increased risk of heart attack and cancer. And add to that children born with birth defects, and you have plenty of reasons to drop your caffeine habit.. Pregnant women do not live in laboratory-type conditions, so it is difficult to test them completely free of outside environment. But the FDA has tested laboratory animals and ...

By Devin Saucier. Expecting mothers beware: Drinking caffeinated beverages may increase the risk of having a low birth weight baby, new research indicates.. For years, doctors have warned pregnant women to limit their caffeine intake, but in a study of more than 59,000 healthy women, researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that even conservative intake may be problematic.. The women, whose pregnancies were uncomplicated through delivery, reported their daily caffeine intake at gestation weeks 17, 22, and 30. Coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks, and chocolate consumption were all recorded.. The results showed women who drank more daily caffeine were more likely to deliver a baby small for gestational age (SGA)..
