Did you know that, after water, coffee is the second most consumed drink in the world? The stimulating substance caffeine is what most likely makes coffee so popular. The same goes for energy drinks. Unfortunately, caffeine is not everyone's best friend. Some people get restless or nervous from it. Still looking for a good substitute that can give you a boost? These are the best alternatives to caffeine and coffee.

Caffeine: everything you need to know

Caffeine is a stimulant that has several effects on your body. First, it naturally gives you more energy. It can also give your mood a positive boost. In addition, for most people, it improves their concentration. This is because caffeine acts on the receptors of the neurotransmitter adenosine. And let adenosine be the very substance that normally makes you slump.

This also brings us to the downside of (too much) caffeine: restlessness and difficulty falling asleep. Do you feel that coffee and other caffeinated drinks give you trouble sleeping? Not surprising... Caffeine can be active in your body for as long as 12 hours! If you suffer from this easily, be sure to read this article. Further on, you will find several good alternatives to caffeine and coffee; healthy replacements that will help you get to sleep.

What is caffeine in?

Caffeine is not only found in coffee and energy drinks, but also in products like tea and chocolate. Although you'll get most of your caffeine intake from 'black gold' and typical energy products, cups of tea also add up nicely. A mug of tea easily contains 20-30 mg of caffeine, which is half that of a cup of coffee. As a tea lover, you still get quite a lot of caffeine. If coffee makes you nervous, check your tea intake before writing off this healthy good. Go for herbal teas, for instance; these teas contain hardly any caffeine. That way, you can still enjoy your cappuccino shots.

Coffee is healthy - and decaf a healthy alternative

It may surprise you -especially if it makes you nervous- but coffee is fundamentally healthy. For instance, it contains antioxidants and combats cardiovascular disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's. The sweet spot to grab these health benefits is 3-4 cups a day. That can also be decaf coffee, by the way: it has the same positive effects on your body.

Healthy substitutes: these are the best alternatives to coffee and caffeine

The best alternative for you to replace your coffee or caffeine with depends mainly on what you need it for. Do you want more energy and a better mood? More focus and concentration? Below are some options that will give you one or more of these effects.

Uplifting alternatives to caffeine

  • Products similar to caffeine in terms of effect include guarana and ginseng.
  • Ginkgo Biloba also gives you more power, but in a less nervousness-inducing way.
  • A cup of decaf coffee can also help; this way, you actually fool yourself a little with a placebo effect. Subconsciously, you link coffee with more energy anyway, even if you drink a decaf alternative.
  • Matcha is delicious as a tea or in your smoothie. It does contain caffeine, but also the substance theanine. And the latter is known to counteract the negative effects of caffeine. The result: more energy, without that overstimulation.
