The morning cup of coffee is as much of a routine as waking up in the morning. To some, it’s a pivotal piece of the workday; a fuel needed in order to perform the tasks ahead. Coffee is often consumed due to having caffeine, which has benefits beyond making you feel alive in the morning but it can also create pitfalls like withdrawal.
But for those looking to get a little more out of their cup of coffee each morning, a new study says it depends on what type of caffeine is in your drink.
Research published in the journal Nutrients found that natural caffeine offers a more consistent and lasting effect compared to synthetic caffeine in regards to cognition and moods. A team from Clarkson University published the peer-reviewed study in hopes to find the difference in caffeine.
