********www.youtube****/watch?v=Q3vd9CZDBdY In this video I will discuss What does Coffee do First, I need to point out there is wide variation in how people react to coffee But the cellular effects are mainly the same Coffee contains multiple active ingredients Among them is caffeine The main action of caffeine is to block adenosine receptors in the brain In other words, Caffeine inserts itself in places where adenosine should insert itself With long periods of wakefulness Adenosine accumulates in neurons as a result of ATP breakdown Adenosine from inside the neurons is transported across cell membranes into the extracellular space This increases levels of adenosine On the surface of all cells you have receptors Cell receptors are just like locks Caffeine competes with adenosine in trying to occupy the keyholes of these locks But caffeine is a different sort of key from adenosine Because of this caffeine increases brain metabolism By increasing brain metabolism it reduces The feelings of drowsiness, brain fog and fatigue It also stimulates neurons into passing messages faster The problem is: this doesn't actually give you energy What it does is mask tiredness So you are still tired, you just don't feel it Because you don't feel tiredness you keep pressing forward In order to keep pressing forward your body taps into its energy reserves -- Which are finite and exhaustible This is how caffeine eventually causes exhaustion It gets your body to a point where there is nothing left to give In a nutshell, Caffeine masks the state of energy depletion of brain cells And disrupts the regenerating cycle of ATP Interestingly, Alcohol exerts many of its effects by modifying adenosine receptor activity The approach I favor is to give your body so much of what it already wants that It can afford to give you a lot of energy You don't have to force it Back to what does coffee do Coffee stimulates the heart, blood circulation and the respiratory system It thus supports the increase in energy demands Again, when this effect is continuous it leads to exhaustion Stimulating the heart and raising blood pressure is bad if you have a heart condition This is why coffee is not recommended for people with cardiovascular problems Because it raises the blood pressure throughout the day and night Coffee interferes with the quality of sleep Many people drink coffee hours before bedtime and say it "It doesn't disturb my sleep in any way" But even if you don't feel it, the quality of your sleep is decreased There is no adaptation to the effects of coffee So even if you've been drinking it for 50 years, It still disturbs your sleep Coffee, but not caffeine, increases uric acid excretion This is a good thing for people with gout A very painful and debilitating condition On the negative side, coffee increases levels of stress hormones For example, epinephrine is raised throughout the day and night This not only interferes with sleep, But it increases your stress response In other words, the same stimulus is perceived as more stressful This has further implications Emotional stress and increasing stress hormones activates the flight or fight response This chemically communicates to your body you are in a life or death situation And this changes the priorities of your body It focuses on the immediate, as opposed to the long term This means systems such as digestion, immunity And detoxification will be depressed This is because these systems are only useful if You are going to be alive tomorrow Depressing these systems in the long run leads to a body Which has nothing left to give -- it is drained, exhausted, Worn out and ready to be thrown out But coffee is not completely bad It can allow healthy individuals to train at the edge of their abilities It can be used to stay awake in situations where falling asleep can actually kill you And there is even research that shows it can increase intelligence -- when combined with proper training of course In this video we have discussed What does Coffee do Both in terms of positives and negatives If you want to discover things about Coffee which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/CoffeePDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****
