So, what is caffeina?

Caffeina is a naturally occurring stimulant that belongs to the class of compounds called xanthines. It is commonly found in coffee beans, tea leaves, and cocoa beans. Caffeina is a central nervous system stimulant that is known for its ability to improve alertness, focus, and energy levels. It works by blocking the action of adenosine, a neurotransmitter that causes drowsiness and relaxation. Caffeina also has potential health benefits, including reducing the risk of some chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and liver disease. However, it can also have negative effects when consumed in excessive amounts, such as insomnia and anxiety.
