What is it?
Caffeine is the bitter substance derived from coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant. It’s many effects on the body include stimulating the central nervous system and it’s one of the best tested ergogenic (energy generating) aids in the world.
Even in small amounts, caffeine has been proven to improve concentration and boost alertness. In addition, caffeine has also been found to have a positive effect on endurance and exercise capacity. What’s not as well known is the effect caffeine has on boosting your metabolism and helping your body burn fat by jumpstarting the process of lipolysis. This process involves your body releasing fatty acids into your bloodstream and happens when your body breaks down fat to convert to energy.
