Coffee, tea, chocolate, cola drinks… all some of our favourites. And they all contain caffeine, scientifically known as trimethylxanthine. It takes less than an hour for caffeine to start affecting the body, and a mild dose takes about three to four hours to wear off.
It temporarily takes away the feeling of being tired and has been known to increase the performance of athletes by up to 50% with the correct dosage. So caffeine can help you at those times that you need it, but it has a down side as well.
An overdose of caffeine leads to symptoms such as nervousness, insomnia, increased urination, muscle twitching, irritability and rapid or irregular heartbeat. In larger doses it can even lead to depression and in extreme cases, death.
Animals are less tolerant than humans to caffeine, since their bodies are unable to metabolise it. Spiders even make webs with the completely wrong shape when they have been given caffeine.
