Minute by minute, this is what a cup of coffee does to the body

Minute by minute, this is what a cup of coffee does to the body

For many of us, morning coffee is an essential part of our daily ritual. But have you ever wondered what exactly happens in your body after the first sip? Experts gave the answer to this question.

The coffee begins to work ten minutes after the first sip.

Dr. Duane Mellor, of the British Dietetic Association, claims this reflects how quickly caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream from parts of the digestive system.

"After drinking coffee, caffeine will begin to appear in the blood after about ten minutes. Some absorb smaller amounts of caffeine through the mouth and stomach, but most absorption occurs in the first part of the intestine," explains the expert.

Once the caffeine from the coffee is absorbed, you will feel that significant energy boost.

However, this growth is a bit misleading. Caffeine doesn't actually give you energy.

Instead, it works by blocking your body from interacting with adenosine, a chemical hidden inside us that makes us feel tired.

Caffeine works this way because its chemical structure closely resembles adenosine, fitting like a key in a lock to adenosine receptors in the body.

This prevents us from feeling tired, making us naturally more alert.

Caffeine, which blocks the body's adenosine receptors, doesn't just promote arousal, explains Dr Mellor.

It is also thought to cause a rise in blood pressure within half an hour of drinking coffee – and the effects can still be seen approximately four hours later.

This increase in blood pressure is caused by caffeine causing blood vessels to constrict, thereby increasing heart rate.

While it's temporary, the NHS warns that drinking more than four cups of coffee a day can raise blood pressure in the long term.

The effects of caffeine on the body peak within 45 minutes, Dr Mellor said.

The stimulating effect of coffee, increasing heart rate and feeling of energy, improves concentration and memory.

But drinking too much coffee can have harmful effects.

Too much caffeine, instead of helping you focus, makes you feel jittery.

NHS guidelines say around 400mg of caffeine a day is safe for adults, the equivalent of four regular cups.

Once the stimulant effect of caffeine kicks in, you may notice an unwanted side effect.

Once caffeine shows up in the blood, it will start to have what experts call a diuretic effect, says Dr Mellor.

This means that drinking enough coffee can make you need to pee more than usual.

The time it takes for caffeine to metabolize varies from person to person. But for most people, an hour or two after the first sip of coffee, the stimulant effects begin to wear off, as do the diuretic effects, according to Dr. Mellor. This can cause feelings of fatigue, anxiety and poor concentration.

However, just because you feel the caffeine drop, doesn't mean it's completely out of your system.

"For most people, the amount of caffeine drops by half after six hours as it is metabolized in the liver. Although the effects may seem to wear off after an hour or two, there will still be a lot of caffeine in your system.” noted Dr. Mellor.

As a result, caffeine can stay in your body for up to 12 hours, according to researchers at the Sleep Foundation. They add that many sleep experts recommend avoiding caffeine at least eight hours before bed so it doesn't disrupt your sleep, meaning it's best to avoid coffee as an afternoon drink.
