About Caffeine

Caffeine is a bitter, white crystalline purine, a methylxanthine alkaloid, and is chemically related to the adenine and guanine bases of deoxyribonucleic acid and ribonucleic acid. Caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the methylxanthine class. Caffeine reversibly blocks the action of adenosine on its receptors and consequently prevents the onset of drowsiness induced by adenosine. The best-known source of caffeine is the coffee bean, the seed of the Coffea plant.

Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that reduces fatigue and drowsiness. It generally improves reaction time, wakefulness, concentration, and motor coordination. Caffeine is used in bronchopulmonary dysplasia in premature infants for both prevention and treatment. It is also used in Orthostatic hypotension treatment.
