WHY TOO MUCH CAFFEINE CAUSES ANXIETY, A SHORT ARTICLE BY DR.ASAD ALI
 
CAFFEINE CAUSES ANXIETY? WHY





YOU HAVE PROBABLY LISTENED THAT TOO MUCH CONSUMPTION OF CAFFEINE CAN LEAD  TO ANXIETY AND SLEEP PROBLEMS. THE ANSWER TO THIS IS THAT CAFFEINE INDIRECTLY INCREASE NOREPINEPHRINE , A NEUROTRANSMITTER THAT WILL CAUSE AROUSAL AND ANXIETY. IT ALSO CAUSE INSOMNIA IF ITS CONCENTRATION IS INCREASED IN THE BRAIN.



FIRSTLY CAFFEINE STIMULATES BRAIN BY INHIBITING cAMP DEGENERATION . cAMP IS IMPORTANT IN AROUSAL. IF ITS AMOUNT IS INCREASED THEN YOU FEEL ALERT. CAFFEINE INCREASES cAMP. AND THUS WE FEEL ALERT. SECONDALY IT REDUCES FATIGUE DUE TO ITS ABILITY TO INCREASE DOPAMINE INDIRECTLY. BECAUSE OF ITS ROLE IN DOPAMINE ENHANCEMENT , THATS WHY WE CALL CAFFEINE AS AN ADDICTED SUBSTANCE. THINK WHY WE CRAVE FOR TEA OR COFFEE?. DOPAMINE EVENTUALLY CONVERTED TO NOREPINEHRINE SO THE CONCENTRATION OF ANXIGENIC COMPOUND , NOREPINERINE INCREASES.

1-2 CUPS OF TEA OR 1/2 CUP OF COFFEE IS BENEFICIAL.

LARGE DOSES OF TEA AND COFFEE LEADS TO ANXIETY.

DONT USE COFFEE OR TEA AT BED TIME. ALSO SOFT DRINKS CONTAINS CAFFEINE SO AVOID THEM AT SLEEP TIME.

MAKE GAP OF 5 HOURS BETWEEN SLEEP TIME AND CAFFEINE USAGE.





DUE TO RELATIONSHIP OF CAFFEINE AND ITS ABILITY TO INCREASE NOREPINEPHRINE LEVELS IN BRAIN, THATS WHY TOO MUCH CONSUMPTION OF CAFFEINE CREATES ANXIETY.
