Even though we love coffee, some of us may choose to go caffeine-free and here is why

Sustained energy all day long

Caffeine provides a temporary surge as it is an effective stimulant. However, later most people experience a subsequent plunge. Avoiding caffeine drinks in the morning makes you spend your energy more or less gradually.

Better absorption of vitamins and nutrients

Caffeine may reduce absorption of some minerals and vitamins from food due to its diuretic effect. Many people are deficient in one or more micronutrients, such as vitamin C, Bs, calcium and iron. Cutting out caffeine can help reverse that.

Better bone health

This point is debatable and even though some studies show that high caffeine consumption is associated with increased urinary calcium loss and reduced bone mineral density. Some argue that you can substitute this deficiency with a cup of milk.

Increase chances of pregnancy

Caffeine may decrease the flow of blood to the uterus. It interferes with implantation. If you have any problem getting pregnant, go to see a professional, but also opt for caffeine-free drinks just in case!

Less anxiety

Caffeine provokes a burst of energy, which is what most of us use it for. However, that energy may cause an increase in nervousness, anxiety, heart palpitations, and even panic attacks. So, if you are not in the best mental state right now, suffering from panic attacks or anxiety, try to minimize the amount of caffeine and feel the difference!
