If you are overweight and looking for a pick-me-up that may also support your body burning a few extra calories, look no further than caffeine.


Caffeine is a xanthine alkaloid compound that stimulates the central nervous system, temporarily increasing alertness. It is the most widely consumed legal psychoactive agent (a substance that affects brain functioning) in the nation.

Caffeine is found in the beans, fruit or leaves of over 60 plants and therefore, caffeine may not be listed on the label of a supplement or functional food but instead, you may see some of the following listed: guarana berries, mat,chocolate or cocoa, Camilla sinensis (the leaves of this plant are used to make tea) or kola nut. Some of these plant-based sources of caffeine include other stimulants as well including theophylline and theobromine.

The most notorious use of caffeine is to support mental alertness and help ward off mental fatigue. However, there are many other potential applications as well.

Caffeine is used to fight the mental and physical fatigue of training (traditional athletic training or military training), support other issues associated with eccentric exercise and support glycogen resynthesis.

In addition, caffeine can be found in weight loss products, energy drinks and combined with analgesics for treating headaches.
