Is Morning The Best Time To Drink Coffee?

We all know that caffeine is really addictive. One reason of it is caffeine interacts with our body’s rhythm which regulates when we sleep and eat in interesting ways.

8 out 10 of my friends drink coffee in the morning and half of it admitted that they drink coffee at least twice a day, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Having a cup of coffee first thing in the morning blunts the energy-boosting effects of caffeine and may lead to increased tolerance of the stimulant. Cool, right?!
