There is good and bad in most things. Some people recommend steering clear of caffeine altogether, others just simply cannot function without it.

Which ever camp you are in, it is fascinating to find out what coffee actually does and how it may affect your day.

The good people at Brightside have come up with this excellent outline of what happens and when.

From heart rate and blood pressure rising, to being able to make more informed decisions, from sharper vision to muscle strength, from fat breakdown to calcium disorder, coffee has it all.

Of course, it pays to be sensible with any stimulant - coffee has it's place, and with most things, everything in moderation!

Together we can bring some Serenity to your life
