Best Time To Drink Coffee

Dietitian Lindi Cohen says the best time to drink coffee is between 10 a.m. and noon. ”When you first wake up, your cortisol levels are at their peak. Caffeine impacts on your body’s production of cortisol levels. When you drink coffee first thing in the morning, your body produces less cortisol and you become dependent on caffeine for your energy kick. This may explain why you feel addicted or a need to drink it first thing in the morning. It’s a far better idea to save your cup for mid morning – or between 10am and 12pm, when your cortisol levels have come down again. Every person has a different tolerance for caffeine, but as a general rule of thumb and for a quality night of rest, don’t have a cup at least six hours before you go to sleep. I’d recommend 2pm as the latest time for a coffee.”
