U.S. – A new study suggests caffeine addiction may prevent coffee drinkers from seeing anticipated stimulant effects from drinking their morning cup. As reported by Reuters, researchers from Bristol University found that high caffeine consumers develop a tolerance for the stimulant, and may not see the intended perky effects from one caffeinated drink.
The scientists are quoted in the report as stating of their findings after testing consumers using a placebo and caffeine, “Although frequent consumers feel alerted by caffeine, especially by their morning tea, coffee, or other caffeine-containing drink, evidence suggests that this is actually merely the reversal of the fatiguing effects of acute caffeine withdrawal.”
More information about the study may be available in the Neuropsychopharmacology journal, published by Nature.
