Reduce Your Caffeine Intake with These Clever Drink Hack Tricks



Coffee drinking may be as important as having breakfast or putting on socks in the morning for many people. It is a part of their daily routine.

Albeit a moderate consumption of coffee isn’t probably going to make any unsafe impacts, it’s memorable’s critical caffeine is addictive. If a person suddenly stops drinking coffee, they may experience headaches associated with caffeine withdrawal.

So, without taking in any more caffeine, how do you get rid of those horrible withdrawal symptoms?

The good news is that science has found a way to satisfy a craving for caffeine without actually having to drink coffee.

Experts now say that decaffeinated (decaf) coffee is enough to satisfy your caffeine cravings without keeping you up all night, which may sound too good to be true.

Despite the fact that decaf contains a trace amount of the stimulant, Australian academics claim that it can lessen withdrawal symptoms.

Researchers from the University of Sydney tried the decaf hack on 61 ‘heavy’ coffee drinkers who all drank no less than three cups every day.

First, the researchers monitored their symptoms of caffeine withdrawal after they all went without caffeine for a difficult 24 hours.

They were divided into three groups for the new study, which was published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. Two of the groups received decaf coffee, while the third received water as a control.

The other group thought they were drinking regular coffee, while only one group was told they were drinking decaf.

The participants were asked to rate their caffeine withdrawal symptoms after 45 minutes.

Dr. Llewellyn Mills, an experimental psychologist from the University of Sydney, stated: “The group we lied to reported a big drip in caffeine withdrawal even though there’s no pharmacological reason why it should.

“Because they expected their withdrawal to go down, it did go down — In other words, a placebo effect. We’ve found this in several studies now.

“What was interesting in this new study is that withdrawal symptoms also reduced even when people knew they were getting decaf. Not so much as the group we lied to, but a significant amount.”

In other words, even in people who knew they were drinking decaf coffee, the withdrawal symptoms were less severe. This was true even though decaf coffee did not contain any active caffeine.

The researchers acknowledged that the reduction in withdrawal symptoms would not be complete and would necessitate additional research.
