Is drinking coffee linked to insomnia?
Hello, I am a school goer, I am 16 years old. During my examinations I stay up late for studying. But when the exams are over, I am not getting sleep. This sleep problem is bothering me very much. I have not informed this to my parents otherwise they will be worried. I have no history of illness. I drink coffee a lot. My friend told me that this might be the reason for my insomnia. Is drinking coffee linked to insomnia? Please comment.
@minnu Caffeine is a natural psychoactive substance widely used in foods and beverages across the world. Caffeine is found in many plants, including coffee beans, tea leaves, cacao pods, and kola nuts. Caffeine is also synthetically produced and used in medications and energy drinks for its energizing and alertness-promoting effects. It is most often consumed in drinks. Since there are so many variations in caffeinated products, it can be hard to know exactly how much caffeine is in a particular drink, especially a fresh-brewed cup of tea or coffee that has no label. Generally speaking though, coffee is the most potent and most consumed caffeinated beverage. A single eight ounce cup of coffee contains between 95-200mg of caffeine. For comparison, a 12 ounce soda contains 35-45mg, about half the amount of a weaker cup of coffee. Drinking excessive coffee is definitely linked to your insomnia. You should reduce it immediately.
