So when is the best time to drink coffee to optimize your health and its effectiveness?
There are a lot of scientific statistics and facts that support when drinking coffee is best. In our sources we will attach a link for more info that we found. But here are a few key points
- Drinking coffee when your cortisol levels are low evens out your mood and stress levels, instead of spiking stress when cortisol is high
- Drinking your coffee first thing might actually be spiking the stress levels, so right after waking up drinking coffee might actually not be as effective and good for your body
- On the contrary drinking coffee too late in the day can affect sleep because it can remain in your system for up to 12 hours - but decaf is likely ok, (and Tylers Acid-Free Decaf Coffee is 98% caffeine free!)
For the average person who is likely waking up around 6-7am the most optimal time to have your daily mug of coffee is between 9:30-11:30 am according to neuroscientist Steven L Miller.
