Introduction: Caffeine is a widely consumed substance, being found in food as well as beverages (Brice and Smith, 2002). Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system and at high doses it can have adverse effects on the body, such as, the occurrence of hyperesthesia and insomnia (Klein & Salzman, 1975). However, at moderate-low levels, caffeine has been found to increase both mental and motor performance (Graham, 1978). Lieberman (1992) investigated the effects of caffeine consumption in daily foods, concluding that lower doses are beneficial, improving an individual’s attention and response time in
More? How about affricated sodas? Personally need 4 cups of coffee to start day. Coffee is pervasive in society. Today I will talk about the beneficial effects, and the negative effects, and discuss what are considered safe levels of caffeine consumption Body: A.
Another solvent used is ethyl acetate; the resultant decaffeinated coffee is marketed as "natural decaf" because ethyl acetate is naturally present in fruit. Extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide has also been employed. Decaffeinated coffee usually loses some flavor compared to normal coffee. There are also coffee alternatives that resemble coffee in taste but contain no caffeine. These are available both in ground form for brewing and in instant form.
(National Cancer Institute). Each type of tea has a similar ingredient that helps to enhance our wellbeing. Tea would not service our bodies without the one entity it includes: antioxidants. Due to the presence of antioxidants, experts say that tea is healthier than water. Dr. Carrie Ruxton, a nutrition team leader at Kings College, declares, “Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water.

It makes us more alert and energic therefore makes us more concentrated on the works we do, it boosts our metabolism so it helps us to burn more fat and prevents us from getting fat/obese.
ABTS is mixed with potassium persulphate to generate the free radical and Nitrites were produced when sodium nitoprusside were mixed with distilled water. The three herbal tea extracts were also able to reduce the blue color of ABTS solution into neutral color with their scavenging activity (51.63 to 81.62%) for R canina , (28.42 to 66.91) T pratense and( 43.85 to77.82%) of M alba. R canina in nitric oxide assay also showed strong radical scavenging activity to reduce the production of nitrates as compared to other two extracts ranging from R canina (48.09 to 80.03 %) T pratense (35.45 to 68.70%) and (38.25 to 72.39±%) for M alba .Lipid peroxidation is an mechanism to damage cellular injury and used as indicator of oxidative stress(Esterbaur et al., 1991).Poly unsaturated fatty acids are damaged by free radicals and create a process of chain reaction which is divided into three phases namely initiation propagation and finally termination (Suresh and Annam,2013)..In general the examined extract of R canina expressed strong antioxidant activity to stop damage of lipids. The largest inhibitory activity again was exhibited by Aqueous extract of R canina with IC50 values(62.65µg/ml) followed by M alba (92.10µg/ml) and least inhibitory activity was showed by T pratense (119.51µg/ml).BHT was used as positive control in all the in
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system giving the body a sense of alertness. It can raise heart rate and blood pressure while dehydrating the body. Today’s population complains of exhaustion, stress, and insomnia, and this is simply the cure for it. Although both high in caffeine, these two have their differences. What everyone wants to know is if coffee is better than energy drinks.

What is the intensity of coffee? How much caffeine do the capsules have? Anyone who has had experience with coffee in capsules will know that the different varieties are measured by levels of "intensity" , a visual scale very simple to understand that Nespresso created to facilitate the consumer the choice of their products. This system has drawn so much that many people think that any coffee is accepted to those numbers, even asking that coffee beans indicate which number of intensity belong. What does this scale actually indicate?
