What is Caffeine
Simply put, caffeine is an alkaloid. These have several biochemical effects (eg, are easily oxidized to uric acid) and are found in common plant sources in different ratios.
Nowadays, caffeine is a common ingredient in several of the products we consume daily – from coffee and colas to chocolates and energy drinks. Scientists opine that caffeine in limited amounts is okay. But there is a flipside too – its psychoactive stimulant properties can lead to caffeine addiction which is as detrimental to health as other addictions can be.
