What Does Caffeine do to Your Brain?

Caffeine Does WHAT To Your Brain??

Although caffeine can lead to temporary increased alertness, excessive consumption does more harm than good. It constricts blood flow to your brain, slows nerve cell activity, puts you in “fight or flight” mode, and that’s just the beginning.

Long-term Addictive Use of Caffeine: Bad for Your Brain?

Excessive caffeine use is associated with chronic dehydration (which can harm your body in numerous ways), added stress on your heart, high blood pressure, jitteriness and headaches, says Daniel Amen, M.D.

Truth is, depending on your own body chemistry, when the effects of the caffeine wear off, you can actually feel fatigued and depressed. So, you consume more caffeine to re-energize. Soon enough, you are hooked on the stuff – and it takes more and more to achieve that same feeling.

After years of studying brain scans at Amen Clinics, it is clear that reduced cerebral blood flow is the opposite of what you want for optimal brain function, says Dr. Amen. “In fact, decreased cerebral blood flow lowers cognitive function and can exacerbate emotional and mental health problems.”
