If you're a coffee or energy drinker, there actually is an optimal time to take in your daily dose of caffeine and chances are it's NOT when you're drinking your morning coffee!
According to a new video out by AsapScience, you should be drinking your coffee at around 10 a.m.
We know you're totally wondering how the heck you can even get dressed and even function without coffee before 10 but let us explain!
Apparently the production of cortisol, better known as the "stress hormone" peaks between 8 and 9 a.m. This is associated with the way our body naturally wakes itself up. Yep, the exact same time we're all drinking our morning brew.
As stated by AsapScience, drinking coffee within this time period lessens the effects of caffeine and in the long run can help your body build up a tolerace. Other peak cortisol hours are between 12 and 1 p.m and 5.30 and 6.30 p.m.
So try holding off your morning coffee for a bittttttt longer if you can!
