Here are our top 8 reasons to quit caffeine:
1. Caffeine increases your stress hormone production
Catecholamines (or stress hormones) are increased with caffeine consumption. This also increases your insulin production which causes inflammation which in turn ends up making you feel sluggish.
2. Caffeine decreases insulin sensitivity
When you are less sensitive to insulin, your cells are tricked into not responding appropriately to blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can lead to deterioration of your arteries and eventual increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
3. Increase of the release of diterpenes into your system
Diterpenes have been linked to increased levels of LDL, VLDL, and triglycerides. Caffeine addiction will perpetuate these issues and you will constantly have to monitor your levels.
4. Drinking caffeine increases your anxiety
Caffeine stimulates your adrenal glands, which activates your fight or flight response. This increases your anxiety and you may feel as if you are in a constant state of panic or nervousness.
5. Did we mention the financial benefits of quitting caffeine?
Caffeine is expensive! If you are brewing your own coffee, you still have to purchase the equipment to brew it. If you are going to Starbucks every day, you are spending money on that. Average caffeine addicts report an average savings of $2000 a year after quitting caffeine.
6. Stop the jitters
Everyone who has drunk caffeine before knows what the jitters are. The sudden burst of energy that comes from drinking caffeine is usually not channeled properly for maximum production, and you end up just shaking because of the excess energy.
7. Addiction and reliance to caffeine
We are here because we know that caffeine addiction is a thing. Any addiction can have serious repercussions if not properly checked. If you find yourself needing caffeine at all times, this is an addiction that you need to break if you want to have a stable life.
8. Sleep like a baby
Have you ever been up at night after a day of drinking caffeine and wondered why you cannot sleep? Chances are it is the caffeine. From everything mentioned previously, you can understand why this is the case. From adrenal production to jitters, these are some things that you do not want in your life.
Having an issue with caffeine is not uncommon in modern society. Caffeine addiction is pushed off as something that comes with the territory of being a working class citizen. Unfortunately caffeine is a very addictive substance and has similar addiction effects as any other drug. Kick your caffeine addiction by downloading Caffeine Addiction Calendar for FREE!
