The Sneaky Molecule

a: Caffeine ~
b: running a covert spy operation

What: "Drinking caffeine is like running a covert spy operation. In the body caffeine is able to impersonate adenosine and effectively trick nerve cells into thinking that it's the latter. This TOTALLY throws the body off. Whenever you drink a caffeinated beverage the caffeine enters adenosine receptors, but instead of slowing down cellular activity like adenosine would do normally, caffeine actually 1) blocks the adenosine and 2) speeds up the CNS! It's a double-whammy of boosted energy."
