  1. It is all relative.
    If you feel your brain works better with coffee then it is more than likely that the caffeine just overcomes the effects of a poor diet to allow more clarity.
    Also if you are addicted you going to feel better on it whatever you think it does, such is the nature of addiction.
    If you are on a healthy low carb diet, where you are not getting the brain fog associated with carbs, & you are not an addict, caffeine impairs rather than helps brain function.
    I can’t think clearly with a caffeine buzz running through my head.
    Interferes with my thought processing.
    It is already fast enough thank you, don’t need that random firing that caffeine does to stimulate the neurons.
    Its like reading text whilst attempting to make sense of words randomly jumping around the page at high speed.
    So I would be more concerned about why you think you need it & less on what it actually does.

  2. Stimulants like caffeine, increase brain activity for many people…especially if ADD/ADHD.
    Some people with anxiety issues find disruption.
    Coffee caffeine may be TOO harsh. Tea or green tea may be more gentle.
    Caffeine is considered to be equivalent (1 cup or tea-bag) to 5 to 10 mg. of Ritalin or Adderall.
    Stimulants increase activity in the “frontal lobe”, where the executive control center resides. That is why stimulants tend to “calm down” hyperative kids and adults. At first impression, this seems counter-intuitive and paradoxical, until you consider the implications of executive control.
    Everybody is wired differently, and these are only general concepts.

  3. The main active constituent of coffee is caffiene. In the brain, it binds to adenosine receptors, blocking the binding of adenosine (the substance that makes you feel tired and drowsy).

  4. Thanks Rahim, for A2A.
    Tea and coffee are stimulants. These drive away tardiness and brains becomes active, at least for an hour or two. When I used to perform night duties, tea was best source to shoo away sleep. However, we should keep in mind that too much of any thing is bad. So, it has to be a limited quantity.
    If you respond to coffee that way, it is quite normal. Brain may stay active for a certain duration depending on person to person. Coffee speeds up heart rate and brain gets more blood flow till you feel its impact. Interestingly, there are also people who do not feel any change with coffee or tea.
    Hope this answer is useful. Thanks for reading.

  5. Coffee is a stimulant and suppresses feelings of fatigue for a sort while. These feelings wear off then you feel the need for another cup. Once you replace the coffee with other drinks over time, your brain will adapt and you won’t feel that need for coffee.

  6. First, the nootropic industry is a worldwide, multi-billion-dollar scam. There exist no clinical trials that support the enhancement of brain functioning or cognitive functioning after introducing these unregulated supplements, some of which may contain toxic ingredients due to lack of regulation by any respectable organization.
    Some people will swear by them without any evidence of cognitive improvement. If you meet someone who tells how much better their brain functions with nootropics, you can be certain that they have their own reason for telling you that a supplement with no proven efficacy actually works for them.
    Next, check your wallet, don’t make any quick movements, and remove yourself from their presence.
    A body of scientific research that spans decades has produced mixed results. The general consensus is that caffeine can short-term memory for the recall of specific words. For some people, it enhances ST memory generally. Over time, the regular ingestion of caffeine adversely affects long-term memory, from mild to moderate loss.
    You want to live a healthy life? Stop using supplements.

  7. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, making you feel alert. Caffeine is the primary factor in coffee’s ability to improve brain function. This stimulant works by blocking adenosine, a sleep-inducing inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain.


  8. Coffee consumption just gives me abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and nausea, so that would be a resounding NO!
    Except, those effects do reinforce the memory not to ever drink coffee!

  9. I still remember the taste of my first shot of espresso I had in Starbucks back in 1997 – it was bitter and unpleasant to taste. That was nearly 24 years ago. So I suppose YES, coffee is good for memory, specially if it’s exceptionally bad!

  10. Try: Hyperactive Child book by Renshaw. Coffee/caffeine is a mild stimulant medicine. This has been known for decades and decades and decades. Coffee/caffeine does not work for everyone.

  11. Yes it can. Caffeine works on Adenosine Receptor A1 and by extension on acetylcholine receptors in the hippocampus. The boost is temporary though and quite indirect as you can see by the the trajectory.

  12. Negative effects of caffeine on long-term memory
    The conclusion was that long-term consumption of caffeine could inhibit hippocampus-dependent learning and memory partially through inhibition of hippocampal neurogenesis. Caffeine has been shown to have negative effects on long-term memory .

  13. Yes! Studies show that it can, along with all kinds of other cognitive benefits. It really is one of nature’s greatest gifts to us. Try Punch’d Energy’s all natural Green Coffee Caffeine Gummies. Amazon’s Choice. PunchdEnergy. com

  14. The caffeine in coffee blocks the action of adenosine on its receptors. The action of adenosine is mildly sedating. By preventing this effect caffeine acts as a stimulant. Other actions are through noradrenaline, dopamine and serotonin. Caffeine also constricts the cerebral arteries. The effect of caffeine through a cup of coffee may last an hour or so. Since the brain is mildly stimulated with caffeine, alertness and the capacity to focus may increase during this period.

  15. What does the coffee have?
    Caffeine , which is the main ingredient. Chlorogenic acids , they’re antioxidants. Cafestol and kahweol , those are actually natural oils. They can be good for the liver! And trigonelline , this forms nicotinic acid when roasted.
    We know that caffeine interacts with a neurotransmitter called adenosine Those promote sleeping. When neurons in the brain bind to adenosine receptors, the neuron firing slows down.
    But since caffeine has a similar molecular structure, it competes with adenosine and bind to the same receptor. And it prevents adenosine from slowing down the neuron firing, which is why you’re more alert.
    That can definitely help your memory a bit. Since being more alert can help you to focus more.
    In general, the whole idea of coffee and memory is a bit hard. You actually get mixed results from study to study.
    Some studies have shown that people who drank coffee had worse auditory memory, meaning that if you heard a hundred word, you’ll likely to remember less if you were a coffee drinker.
    However, the short memory will be better . Those who drink coffee will have a better short memory throughout the day – that has to do with the alertness, normally adenosine builds up during the day and make you sleep by night because of the slowing down of the firing of neurons.
    As for the long term memory , it’s been shown that caffeine has made people better in both storage and recalling/retrieving information.
    But again, if caffeine is affecting your sleeping patterns then all the effects can be negative in the long run.

  16. I believe it is determined by individual genetics because scientific studies come up on both sides of this issue. Different people utilize caffeine differently. Also the other components of nutrition in the coffee. I would consider how it affects YOU. Let others figure out their own good or bad reactions.

  17. Guys, I heard that drinking coffee will increase our memory power to some extent, is it true?

    Caffeine is a cognitive enhancer that is frequently taken with nootropic stacks. Caffeine itself is a stimulant so it does not technically qualify under the definition of a nootropic, but it has been extensively documented to improve mental performance and brain functioning.
    Aside from being the most popular legal psychoactive drug in the world, Caffeine is a xanthine alkaloid compound. Its effect is to stimulate the central nervous system and temporarily increase alertness.
    How coffee works in the brain?
    The main mechanism of action for caffeine is by acting as a replacement to a chemical called adenosine.
    Adenosine regulates drowsiness. When you are tired, adenosine builds up inside your brain and attaches to proteins on brain cells called adenosine receptors, causing drowsiness. The role of adenosine is to basically make sure that your nervous system does not become over-excited or run out of control.
    Caffeine is actually thought to mimic the actions of this chemical, but only in reverse. The important thing to remember is that when caffeine and adenosine both attempt to target the same chemical receptor sites, caffeine wins every time.

    As caffeine targets these same receptors, this serves to enhance the stimulating effects upon the brain and central nervous system. This can increase the release of key neurotransmitters especially Dopamine.
    This is a powerful brain chemical thought to activate pleasure centers within the brain as well as regulate executive functions like concentration and attention.
    The Dopaminergic activity of caffeine is a key reason why you feel so focused and may see mood improvements after having some caffeine.
    The most well-known benefit of caffeine is an increase in mental and possibly physical alertness. Of course, this is not a very long-lasting benefit, and the effects do seem to decrease in this respect for that second cup or drink.
    Recent studies (there are something like 22,000 different caffeine studies in the books) indicate a number of additional benefits. For example, regular coffee drinkers were 80 percent less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, indicating that caffeine may have the effect of protecting brain neurons.
