Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

I love the taste of coffee and I'm a caffeinist who practically can not get out of coffee. But that would not be a problem if caffeine was beneficial or neutral. In this forthcoming article, I would like to discuss the extent to which and, if so, the reasons why it would be necessary to limit my personal caffeine intake.

In the old good times of totalitarian times in the CSSR, caffeine and camphorizing for unhealthy luxury like smoking did. Caffeine was thought to be stress and blood pressure- enhancing stimulant that was not indicated for serious reasons and which doctors like to ban older people .

Today the situation has turned and the negative caffeine properties have disappeared from the radar. Parallel with this, cofferic bombs appeared in the form of energy drinks. Together with my caffeineism, this leads me to the question if I am not witnessing a business-evolutionary phenomenon whose overall impact on society and also my personal health is negative. However, I do not present this as a conclusion. There are many small phytochemicals that are of course beneficial - for example, antioxidant coffee. However, caffeine is suspected of being too similar to the nucleotide base of adenine, which is ubiquitous in biochemistry and, in addition, is involved in DNA.

Caffeine demonstrably increases mental alertness and alertness , but makes it an allosteric effect on adenosine receptors that over time desensitize, require higher doses and cause the opposite effect - abnormal drowsiness and other symptoms.

Filing this article will require further study of literature.

Sorry, but this article is not finished. Current, unfinished version does not express its final form.
