Truth about caffeine
Do you feel you have to have a cup of tea or coffee in the morning it may be because heat increases your core body temperature, which is energising.

Caffeine blocks the sleep inducing molecule called adenosine, which makes us feel sleepy.
Adenosine builds up by being active throughout the day.
The more adenosine you build up, the higher your sleep drive,
and the higher your sleep drive, the faster you’ll fall asleep,
and the more sound your sleep will be, as your body flushes out the adenosine your body built up.
