Caffeine is perhaps the most common legal stimulant in the world. Present in tea, coffee, and perhaps most relevantly energy drinks, caffeine gives an immediate rush of energy and for many people is the prefered method of waking themselves up. However, when consuming caffeine few people actually think about the hidden danger of caffeine addiction.
When you slug down your morning joe, caffeine immediately starts your brain secreting ACTH (adrenocorticotrophic hormone). This is one of the most potent stress hormones present in our body, and in truth the ‘alert’ feel you get is actually your body entering into a sort of ‘fight or flight’ mode. While this may indeed raise your overall level of alertness, overtime heavy use of caffeine will drain your body’s adrenal glands. Once this happens it becomes impossible to function without caffeine. This in itself leads to what is referred to as ‘caffeine addiction.’ People who suffer from caffeine addiction will feel lethargic, anxious, and on edge without caffeine, largely because their adrenal glands have become dependant on an artificial outside stimulant in order to function.
There is no reason to risk a caffeine addiction, and for youth and those leading active lifestyles a caffeine addiction can lead into some potentially dangerous grounds.
