Why Caffeine Shouldn’t Be Part of Your “Good Morning Tea”!

It’s embedded in our culture, and we see it all the time in ads, movies and on TV: someone groggily getting up out of bed and slumbering towards a hot cup of caffeine-loaded tea or coffee. In fact, back in the 1980s, Pepsi even tried to getting on ritual by launching “Pepsi AM” (this was rapidly abandoned after it became clear that most people, no matter how stimulated they care to be in the morning, don’t want a beverage with 12 spoons of sugar to start their day!)

Caffeine Facts

However, despite how normal and ordinary it may seem to drink good morning tea or coffee filled with caffeine, researchers have made it abundantly clear that caffeine shouldn’t be part of your “good morning tea” or any other beverage for that matter. On the contrary, according to research by Steven Miller, a Ph.D. candidate at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, it’s actually damaging to your health. Here is why:

Typically, the peak time that your body naturally produces cortisol is between 8 am and 9 am. This means that during this time, you don’t need to add caffeine to your system, because your body is actually “caffeinating” itself! And that’s only part of the story.

Caffeine Body Effects

Consuming caffeine while your body is at its peak cortisol level actually reduces the caffeine’s impact and effectiveness – which essentially means that you need to consume more and more caffeine, yet you’ll feel it less and less.

Over time, this causes your body to increase its tolerance for caffeine, which can lead to unnaturally high levels of cortisol – and trigger an array of health problems, including (but not limited to):

  • The destruction of muscle and bone
  • Diminished healing and cell regeneration
  • Impaired digestion, metabolism, and mental functioning
  • A weakened immune system
  • An unhealthy endocrine function
