I am presently at this moment in a coffee shop, trying to get my third cup of pike placed, am here because I needed more attention, focus and be more productive- just because I need this article written with the peak of my productivity. Yaaaay! Didn’t coffee solve my problem?
In humans, our productivity hovers up with diminishing returns; productivity has been a significant subject discussed in the workplace, sports as well as in our daily activities.
The chemistry of human is such in which, after a long duration of work- whether muscular or sitting down in your 9-5 office job; the nerve cells relax. Or perhaps, you have deprived yourself a good sound sleep in couple days, ultimately!
Your productivity reduces drastically. However, an external chemical or stimulant ‘caffeine’ can dose up and heighten up the productivity needed for us to go back to our work rate.
Productivity is an issue coffee abruptly solves because it contains some stimulants- a chemical that makes the body more active and gives more energy to the body. Chemicals in coffee include adenosine antagonist (known for its stimulating effects), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, carboline and harmane (known for its contribution to psychoactivity in the body).
In a small dose, caffeine in invariably useful for the human system with a short boost. Over time, caffeine has proven to be a potent and valuable stimulant towards the personal productivity of individuals. Coffee is known to alter the chemistry of our body when taken in small doses by providing the enhanced motor, cognitive, boosting a short-term memory as well as a long-term effect in the increase in reactions and accuracy to focus squarely on attention. Although the effectiveness of coffee in a human body is proven scientifically to be dependent on age, dosage, body type and quality of sleep.
In contrast, coffee has a more substantial effect on the body if you have never taken a cup of coffee, or if you rarely take a cup of coffee. This result is known to occur even at the smallest dose taken by individuals who rarely take coffee. You feel more energy, more alertness; more focus and get a lot of things done than you usually do.
However, as you well may be aware, too much coffee is known for its side effects such as jitters, heart palpitations, hyper reactivity, stomach upset insomnia, sleeplessness and lots more. Therefore, if you want to your regular early morning shot of your coffee from your under cabinet coffee maker, make sure to drink in the right dosage- doesn’t make it too much!
Caffeine- a particular chemical in coffee is perceived to build productivity by thinkers, writers, motivational speakers, musicians and 9-5 daily workers. We need to understand the chemistry on how caffeine works to increase productivity; adenosine- a chemical in the body otherwise called purine nucleoside is produced by the neurons of the human nervous system as the brain fires away.
Although there are purine nucleosides in the body, caffeine seems to have some special attachments and effects with A1 receptor- one of the adenosine in our system. And so in that case, when you consume caffeine, it gets instantly plugged into the Al receptor and dominates it, the body then accepts the caffeine and bind the receptors it. With time, it would be no longer able to produce its dopamine and glutamate, as the coffee has taken over finally!
As long as you are aware of the purpose of your consumption of coffee and take the correct dosage, there are many proven long-term effects the bean has on the body to boost productivity; here are the ways by which coffee (caffeine) boosts productivity:
Protection of the brain– the human brain is somewhat protected against DNA damage and oxidative stress by the oils in coffee (kahweol and cafestol) – these oils are known for their potent neurological and anti-inflammatory effects on the brain. In fact, regular intake of coffee keeps the mind safe as long as you do not filter off these precious oils while brewing- use a Nespresso coffee machine to protect these oils.
Increased energy– coffee is known to alter the metabolic activity of the human body to its highest altitude by increasing oxygen intake and lung functions, this in turns results to increased energy production by the body.
Improved physical endurance– coffee is known by athletes and endurance workers to improve physical performance due to its cryogenic effects. It makes the nerves and muscles active and less relaxed by supporting correct metabolism in the muscle tissues.
Coffee is also known to increase motor function in the body, increase focus and attention, improve endurance, enhance creativity, improve assimilation capability of the brain and even to burn fat. However, for the most efficient and efficient effects of coffee on your body, take coffee in small dosages as an abuse of coffee has a lot of long-term side effects on your body. Brew your coffee appropriately to avoid losing essential oils and chemicals. Then you would have your brain always alert, and productivity increased and acknowledge coffee later!
