Best Time to Drink Coffee to Boost Energy

19 November 2021 17:38 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaCoffee is one of the world’s top beverages. It has long become part of people’s morning routine as an energy booster for its stimulant called caffeine. 

To maximize its benefits and prevent the side effects, here are the best times to consume coffee:

  1. About one hour after waking up

According to a June 2016 study, as quoted from Livestrong’s article on November 17, the primary stress hormone cortisol is naturally at its peak level about 30 to 45 minutes after waking up. 

Cortisol is a hormone that can enhance alertness and focus, as well as regulate metabolism, immune system, and blood sugar. Thus to prevent elevated levels of cortisol that may cause health issues, it is suggested to drink coffee about one hour after waking.

  1. 30 minutes before exercise 

Coffee is also known to help enhance exercise performance. A December 2016 article in Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews demonstrates that coffee can also reduce exercise pain other than promoting focus and coordination.

A nutrition expert Lauran Slayton suggests having a cup of coffee 30 minutes before working out or doing important work.

  1. Right after a poor night's sleep

Based on a study in October 2016 in Sleep, researchers found that sleep-deprived people can drink coffee up to 200 milligrams or about 2 cups immediately after waking up and an additional 200 mg four hours later to feel like they have gotten a full night's sleep.

However, the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recommends consuming no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day, or about 4 or 5 cups. People having a caffeine intolerance or sensitivity, meanwhile, are suggested to lower or eliminate it.

“We suggest people max out at two cups of coffee and then consume green tea or matcha if they want a boost,” Slayton adds.
