Coffee and Sleep Disorder
Coffee is one of the most popular hot drinks around the world. It has been subject of research and has been attributed to be beneficial to fight several diseases. Some internet sites are selling Magic Powder Coffee, an instant coffee, marketed as sexual aphrodisiac. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) urged consumers to stop consuming this magic coffee powder as it poses risk to lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.
Caffeine is a drug. Coffee contains caffeine, and about 90% of Americans drink coffee, many of them pour more than 300 milligrams of caffeine into their systems every day. Caffeine is a mild stimulant. It makes you more alert by fending off sleep. It's the most widely used drug in the world and is contained in many foods and also in numerous stay awake medications like No Doz.
Never forget, however, that caffeine is a drug. It has, on occasion, even been considered a drug of abuse. Although it can keep you awake and make you feel more alert, it does not necessarily improve your performance.
Like other drugs, including alcohol, you may think you're doing great at a task, but a later check could reveal errors in thinking. These errors are caused by the disorientation and irritable headaches of something called coffee nerves.
Unfortunately, as it is a drug, it may not be good for your health. it can lead to addiction and withdrawal symptoms including headache, irritability and nervousness.
