Your Coffee Jolt Could Be Improved By When You Drink It.

Just as Juan Valdez will pick no bean before it’s time (I know, I dated myself there but anyway) neither should you.

According to scientists you should be discriminating about when you drink your coffee to get the full benefit or  maximum jolt if you prefer.

Recently a  U.S. neuroscientist  named Steven Miller concluded that coffee drinkers may be inadvertently robbing themselves of the full effect of that eye-opening kick based on the time imbibe.His theory was backed up by another  PhD student at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Maryland named Miller, citing that caffeine in your beverage of choice delivers a better kick when you body’s stress hormone cortisol is low which for most people is between 9:30 – 11:30  versus  between 8 a.m. – 9a.m  and likewise at noontime and between the hours of 5:30 – 6:30pm when the average person’s cortisol is at a higher level.

There is a caveat  not everyone’s cortisol levels follow these exact time frames specifically if you get up early.
