The Best Time of Day to Drink Coffee

The Best Time of Day to Drink Coffee

I always have a cup of coffee is as soon as you step out of your bed in the morning. Is this the best time? Should I drink water first or eat something before taking my morning coffee?

Well, one thing’s for sure. First thing in the morning is not the best time. According to team of researchers at AsapSCIENCE (a very popular YouTube science channel), the best time to get your coffee fix isn’t early in the morning, but rather at around 9am…

 

Why coffee is as effective when taken early in the morning

When you drink coffee while your alertness levels are peaking, it can reduce the effects of caffeine, not enhance them… To come to this conclusion, the researchers examined how human biological rhythms change during the day. They found that your alertness levels peak a few times throughout the day. Spikes in hormone cortisol largely causes this. However, the highest peak usually takes place between 8 and 9 in the morning.

It does seem like a cup of coffee during this hour can help make you more alert, but this is not what happens, explains the researchers. They demonstrated that consuming coffee or any caffeinated drinks during peak cortisol production greatly reduces the effects of caffeine instead…

Your personal sleep patterns don’t change the effects of taking coffee during the highest peak

Researchers concluded that because your levels of alertness flactuate throughout the day, your personal sleep schedule doesn’t make a difference as to when the best time is for you to drink coffee.

Therefore, just because you woke up at 5am doesn’t mean that having a cup of coffee at 7am will give you the boost you need. It will only mask the effects of your addiction. Whether you wake up at 5:00am or 7:30am, try to have your first dose of coffee after 9am.
