MENTAL HEALTH EFFECTS OF CAFFEINE
- People may not be aware that their mental ill-health may be being caused or exacerbated by their caffeine intake. In particular (a) anxiety is highly correlated with caffeine use, and (b) anxiety sufferers appear to often have high caffeine sensitivity.
- People may also be over-estimating the benefits they are receiving from caffeine. Caffeine's perceived benefits may not be real, and it may have negative effects on personality, personal effectiveness and sleep quality.
- Why not go caffeine free for 40 days (the first withdrawal days will not be fun) as a trial to find out?
