Transcript of Caffine - Drug Presentation

Caffeine What type of drug is it?

Caffeine is a drug that is naturally produced from the leaves and seeds of many plants. It can also be produced artificially. Caffeine is most commonly found in soft drinks, coffee, tea and chocolate.
Caffeine is classified as a drug, because it stimulates the central nervous system, and causes increased alertness.
It is said that if one were to consume two to four cups of a substance with caffeine in it, it wouldn't be harmful, but it could cause irritation and restlessness, and can make you anxious. Caffine is a bitter, white crystalline powder that is a psycoactive stimulant. It was isolated in coffee in 1820 by a German scientist. Caffeine stimulates the brain, elevates the mood and postpones fatigue. You can become physically dependant on using caffine, and if you are to abruptly stop using it, it could cause you to become edgy and can cause headaches, but these will fade after about a week. Healthy adults do not appear to suffer with long-term effects from using caffine. Larger daily doses can cause restlessness, nervousness, insomnia, flushed face, increased urination, muscle twitching, stomach upset and agitation. Caffine also appears to be associated with irregular heartbeat and raised cholesterol levels. Caffiene is widely used amont Canadians today, about 81% of Canadians drink coffee, and 63% of those over 18 drink coffee on a regular basis. In one Monster energy drink, the caffiene content is 10 mg/oz.(34 mg/dL, 1.75 mmol/L),[5] or 160 mg for a 16 oz can.
