It’s been a big year for post-practice caffeine consumption.
With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming NFL season, players are increasingly seeking out the benefits of a little extra caffeine.
But there are some caveats.
“Caffeine is a stimulant, so it can cause a high, but it can also cause side effects,” Dr. Peter Siegel, an addiction medicine specialist and co-founder of the Center for Addiction Medicine at Johns Hopkins University, said.
“So, we’re not prescribing anything as a replacement for caffeine.”
Instead, Dr. Siegel recommends the following: A caffeinated post-workout shake to refresh yourself and your body after a hard day at the office.
(Read our complete post for the best way to take it.)
One to two cups of coffee a day.
(Try to drink more than a cup of coffee daily, Dr, Siegel said.)
“Coffee, if it’s not in moderation, can cause side effect,” he said.
If you’re having a hard time waking up at the crack of dawn and don’t want to get up and run to the bathroom, consider adding a pre-workouts shake to your morning routine.
A pre-workingout shake is made with the help of a mix of sweeteners and nutrients to help you digest more quickly.
You can add one or two teaspoons of sugar and three tablespoons of milk to your shake to help it stay on the side of sugar, Dr Siegel suggested.
“This is the perfect pre-dawn shake for you if you’re trying to get the sleep you need,” he added.
The caffeine boost Dr. Paul Dutro, the founder and CEO of Dutrolink, said he takes caffeinated beverages to help keep his mind sharp and energized during the workday.
The company makes a caffeine supplement that it says will help boost performance and mental alertness, as well as boost your body’s production of endorphins, which can help you feel better and stay alert throughout the day.
The Dutralink caffeine supplement is made from the caffeine from caffeine-rich cocoa beans and contains 5 mg of caffeine, which is roughly the amount of caffeine found in one cup of instant coffee.
The supplement is formulated to last up to a year in the body and provides a dose of 10 milligrams of caffeine.
“It can actually help you stay focused and focused on what you’re doing,” Dr Dutrop said.
But you might want to use a lower dose.
Dr. Dutroe says his clients have reported that their caffeine levels spiked after taking the supplement.
“When I started out in the supplement business, I was prescribing them to people who had heart problems or had some other problems,” he explained.
“But now, I don’t think there’s a lot of benefit to that, because you get what you pay for.”
“I don’t really prescribe anything to people for their sleep,” Dr Siegles said.
Instead, he suggests taking supplements such as caffeine-reduced energy drinks, which are typically made from energy drinks that contain less caffeine.
If it’s a challenge getting enough sleep in the morning, try taking a morning boost from an extra cup of caffeinated coffee or caffeinated tea.
“I’d recommend something like the caffeine-free caffeine drink, which contains caffeine in a watery liquid,” he advised.
And if you have a hard drive full of movies and TV shows you want to binge watch, you can try to get yourself in the mood by listening to music that’s been played in your headphones, or switching up the music.
“If you have one of those pre-game music players and it’s loud enough, that can help with your mood,” Dr, Dutrot said.
Dr Ducas, the sports psychologist, said caffeine can have a beneficial effect on the body’s ability to process information.
“The caffeine that we are drinking in the form of caffeine-containing beverages, that’s going to help us learn and to process and process information,” he noted.
“That’s what’s going on in the brain right now.”
The benefits of taking caffeine post-coach can be seen when athletes use the supplement in addition to a healthy diet.
“You have the benefit of getting more energy and getting more clarity in your mind,” Dr Ducas said.
That being said, if you aren’t a fan of the caffeine after a workout, you shouldn’t be taking it after a game.
“There’s not a lot you can do to make it worse,” he warned.
