Nutrition Advent Calendar - Day 20

Caffeine - Is it really that good?

Tea and coffee are the most widely consumed drinks across the world after water. People typically drink 4-6 cups per day, and may consider it essential to get them through the day...thanks to caffeine!

Caffeine offers many health benefits and is regularly used in sport to enhance performance. However caffeine has always been perceived to cause a diuretic effect (dehydration). What's the score?

Glutamine is a naturally occurring nonessential amino acid meaning that the body can produce its own and is abundantly stored in skeletal muscle and blood. Glutamine plays a vital role in immune and intestinal health, glucose formation, acid-base regulation and acts as a precursor of nucleotides which are the building blocks of DNA formation [1].

Now that you’re fully prepared for the marathon after maximising your body’s internal carbohydrate stores and hydration levels, this third and final blog of the series will outline the last minute touches to complete your race nutrition strategy.

Caffeine is a naturally occurring chemical found in certain plants including cocoa beans, kola nuts, yerba maté, guarana, and the world’s most beloved tea leaves & coffee beans. Coffee & tea have become the major sources of caffeine intake, and many consider it as an essential dietary component to get them through the day. It is not uncommon for people to drink between 3-6 cups of tea or coffee per day, as they find it helps them to feel better, have more energy and be able to carry out daily tasks more effectively.
