[Music] Hey there how’s it going, my name is Kevin Otto and I am the founder of Rebel Wellness Incorporated and creator of the Rapid Energy Fix system. I help men and women increase their energy, focus, productivity and libido. Today I am talking about the fraudulent and vicious cycle of caffeine for energy. Alright, so one of my clients, Shauna, she stopped coffee cold turkey and within two days she was into withdrawal. You know after that she got a head headache and flu-like symptoms for another three or four days and then woke up the next morning feeling fantastic, you know about a week later. So now get this, she was only having one cup in the morning and sometimes a second cup after lunch so she had enough energy to get things done around the house and make it to the end of the day, otherwise she was taking a nap with her kids. So, Shauna thought that coffee was helping her and giving her all this extra energy but in reality it was sucking the energy right out of her, and here’s why. When Shauna got up in the mornings she wasn’t feeling rested and needed that little pick-me-up that she got from caffeine and sugar, lunch would roll around and after she either needed a nap with her kids or another cup of joe just to make it through the day and get things done. So what’s the big deal you may ask, well you see the caffeine in coffee creates a vicious cycle. Like I said, caffeine has a half-life of about five hours so 15 hours after your first cup of coffee there is still 12 and 1/2 percent of the original amount of caffeine surging through your system. You’re like saying, whoopity doo like what’s the big deal. Ah, I get you here hold your horses, let me finish. Okay, so one Starbucks tall medium roast at at 8am, that’s about 350 Mills, has 280 milligrams of caffeine. This means 15 hours later at 11:00 p.m. you still have 35 milligrams of caffeine in your system. You know, not a big deal, right; or is it. So, let’s take that one cup and add a second cup at 1:00 p.m., now you have a hundred and five milligrams of coffee still in your system at 11:00 p.m. at night. So, do you think this may affect your ability to fall asleep maybe maybe not. What about the quality of your sleep, like how deep will your sleep be, you know how long will you sleep, is it affecting the length. So, say on the weekend you want to sleep in but for some reason you’re up bright and early and not so bushy-tailed, exhausted wondering what the hell is going on and why you can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep and why you’re always tired. You see what I’m getting at here, do you see how there’s this vicious cycle happening. Add another cup of coffee after supper, say six o’clock and then when eleven rolls around you have 245 milligrams of caffeine bombing around is if you drank a cup of coffee right before you’re getting ready for bed. You know what let’s change it up a bit, let’s change the scenario, let’s say you have three cups by noon, seven,nine and twelve; 10 p.m. rolls around and you still have 151 milligrams of caffeine buzzing around your brain when you’re supposed to be winding down and getting ready for a rejuvenating slumber. All right, so let’s circle back to Shauna here, you know what, when we work together she dropped coffee like a hot potato within two days she’s feeling like a bag of whiz, you know the headache, flu-like symptoms for three or four days, remember she’s was only a one cupper per day sometimes two. And then, roughly a week later she woke up feeling fantastic, her energy levels skyrocketed and she no longer needed coffee to get her going in the morning or to keep her going in the afternoon. She would put the kids down for a nap and keep right on truckin through the afternoon not having to worry about her energy levels. This is the vicious cycle of coffee and caffeine and the false energy that it brings. So, if you’re pounding coffee energy drinks or caffeine pills there’s a huge chance it’s doing more harm than good. So now I want you to comment below on how much coffee you are drinking in a day whether you and whether or not you think it is affecting the quality of your sleep. All right guys, take care and we’ll see you later. [Music]
