The caffeine buzz from drinking a cup of coffee can contribute to athletic endurance performance, according to a recent study by University of Georgia doctoral student Simon Higgins and FDN professor Rick Lewis. Their research found between 3 and 7 milligrams per kilogram of body weight of caffeine from coffee can increase athletic performance by about 24 percent.
“[Previous studies suggested] that other compounds within coffee — Dicinnamoylquinides which is essentially a type of antioxidant — might inhibit the action of caffeine within the coffee, leading it to be less efficacious for improving endurance performance,” Higgins said.
