Beware of Triple Shots –
August 30, 2018 – Caffeine occurs naturally in certain plants, nuts, and seeds and manufacturers add it to some foods and drinks. Caffeine has a range of effects on the body, from suppressing appetite to making a person feel more awake. Caffeine is a stimulant, meaning that it increases some of the body’s processes. For example, messages sent between the brain and the body can travel faster. This is one reason why a person may feel more alert or focused after consuming caffeine.
Heart rate and breathing may also speed up after someone consumes caffeine. Most of the effects on the body are short term and do not cause lasting harm. But if a person consumes a large amount of caffeine, it can have a harmful effect on the body.
