If you love coffee but you are always being told not to drink too much as you will become addicted, it is time to listen to the truth about caffeine and addictiveness.
A Natural Stimulant
Caffeine is a natural stimulant to the nervous system and when it is consumed on a regular basis our body does get used to the physical dependence. While a physical dependence sounds very much like an addiction, it is mild and is not a significant threat to our health. Unlike drugs and alcohol, caffeine has not lasting damage on physical or mental health.
You will notice that once you stop drinking caffeinated coffee you will experience some mild withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and lack of concentration, but they will pass after a few days. If you do want to stop drinking caffeine then you should reduce your intake gradually rather than abruptly.
If you are worried about the amount of coffee that you are drinking then you can always turn to a decaffeinated option. Here at The Coffee Gallery we serve high-quality decaf that is just as good as our full caffeine coffee by Counter Culture. Decaffeinated coffee is also good if you are pregnant and need to reduce your caffeine intake without missing out on the taste.
Whether you drink full caffeine boutique coffee or decaffeinated, you can look forward to a warm relaxing drink at the best coffee shop in LA, The Coffee Gallery.
