| Do you know how coffee keeps us awake?
Adenosine is a chemical in our bodies that causes fatigue. Caffeine, found in coffee, has a molecular structure similar to adenosine.
Caffeine binds with the same receptors that adenosine binds with, thereby blocking adenosine from reaching our brains. By doing so, caffeine keeps us awake and alert.
If you're senstitive to caffeine, avoid drinking it at night for a good night's rest! - 4 days ago
