Caffeine Perks up the Brain

February 1, 2008: 12:00 AM EST
Caffeine does have health benefits, even in low doses, says a review of trials conducted over the last 15 years. The analysis published by the British Nutrition Foundation highlights improved alertness, short-term recall and reaction time, better mood and reduced levels of fatigue from low to moderate intake levels. One study found improved exercise performance of 12 percent, especially in endurance activities. Another found lower ratings of perceived exhaustion accounted for 30 percent of the improvement in exercise performance. It is thought that caffeine influences mood and performance by acting on neurotransmitters in the brain.
