For those of us working at a computer, cranking out code and composing emails, there’s nothing better than a great cup of coffee for that perfect boost of energy and focus to help us be our most productive.

Coffee affects the brain in a variety of ways. It has been shown to improve cognitive functions including mental performance, alertness, and heightens our overall concentration levels.

But what is it about coffee that makes such an impact on our mental focus and productivity?

First, coffee is a stimulant. When we drink it, it triggers the fight-or-flight response, blocking neurotransmitters in the brain that make us feel tired.

Coffee also increases retention of information, helping the brain to better preserve short term memory. This John Hopkins scientific study supports this, showing that caffeine enriches memories up to 24 hours after consumption. When trying to be productive, this is obviously a huge benefit.

Caffeine has even been shown to benefit those who suffer from mental health conditions, most notably attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, a common neurological disorder that impacts a person’s ability to focus. The increased dopamine contributes to improved mood, proper decision making, and increased concentration levels.
