That is because caffeine interacts with an important hormone in the body, the hormone cortisol, which helps regulate the body's internal clock and increase alertness.
Naturally, the body's hormone cortisol normally is at a high point shortly after waking up, and will last up to several hours.The peak occurs at around 8-9 am.
Neuroscientist at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Maryland, Steven Miller, says that time is the best coffee after hormone cortisol is past his prime, ie after 9am.
Furthermore, he said that if a person drinks coffee when the hormone is still high can cause the body to increase tolerance to caffeine, which means they will require more amount of caffeine every morning to get the same effect.In other words, the same dose of coffee every morning in time they become less effective.
It is as applicable to the drug, which is taken when needed.Because if not, the body will develop a tolerance (resistance) to the drug ring, and so the body asking for larger doses to create the same effect.
"This is because the production of cortisol is very closely related to the level of alertness, and within 24 hours of cortisol is at its peak at around 8-9 am," said Miller.
Other than between the hours of 8-9 am, cortisol will reach its peak a few more times in a day, which is about an hour 12-13 pm, and the last on the hour 18-19 pm.
Cortisol, whose production is high when under stress, helping to change the energy reserves in the body into sugar (glucose), so it can be used by the cells of the body as fuel.
That's why scientists suggest if you want to drink coffee, the most appropriate time is between the hours of 9:30 to 11:30, because of cortisol in the body is low, before finally peaking at noon.
However, the researchers also cautioned that cortisol cycle for each person is different.For example, in someone who is accustomed to getting up early every day, it is the right time for him to drink coffee could be even earlier than the time mentioned above.
