THE NINJA MOLECULE
Would you like to know why caffeine is such a worthy component to be in PRELIXIR?
STAY AWHILE AND LISTEN
We all know caffeine, we all know the rich succor of dark hot bean juice steaming down our throats in the morning, we all know the bittersweet charm, the heavenly addiction, possessed by this treasure of the natural world. But just what makes caffeine so terrific at gettin’ you all jazzed up to slang lightning bolts at your day? DECEPTION, DEAR LADS AND LADIES!!! (Woah, literally did not realize lad was a short version of lady until right now. I digress.)
As your neurons blast off all day long they produce a neurochem called adenosine. Adenosine binds with receptors in your brain to communicate to your body that you are sleepy. Caffeine, however, is shaped VERY similarly to adenosine molecules. It ninjas in there and locks into adenosine receptors, preventing actual adenosine from getting in there and telling you you’re tired. It’s so sneaky and brilliant, it’s not actually GIVING you energy, it’s just PREVENTING your body from getting the message that it’s tired! So your poor, stupid body can keep working! Oh the delicious DECEIT of it all! Slave on, foolish body! Your sweet adenosine isn’t here to save you ANY LONGER!! You’re TIRED!? You’ll sleep when you’re DEAD, you FOOL!! Or maybe just when the caffeine wears off and all that pent up adenosine floods your receptors and you’re even more tired than before...
