Does coffee in the morning wake you up?

If your day doesn’t officially start until that first sip of coffee in the morning, it may surprise you to hear that caffeine has no effect on waking up regular coffee drinkers.
A new study on 379 volunteers, found no difference in alertness between coffee fiends and their non-caffeine drinking counterparts.
‘Although frequent consumers feel alerted by caffeine, especially by their morning tea, coffee or other caffeine-containing drink, evidence suggests that this is actually merely the reversal of fatiguing effects of acute caffeine withdrawal,’ said Peter Rogers from the University of Bristol, who led the study. However, scientists recommend continuing in your caffeine habits whatever these may be, to avoid suffering withdrawal symptoms.
