If you’re looking to enhance your sports performance, caffeine might seem like a good short-cut, especially if you’re tired from training for your event. Yeah, it can give you a quick boost, but:
-If you aren’t familiar with your body and how it reacts to caffeine, it may be hard to time when it will kick in… or when it will wear off and you’ll crash.
-Depending on your activity, the extra adrenaline boost caffeine gives you maybe TOO hard on your heart.
-Caffeine improves your focus… but at the cost of your judgement. You might feel like your golf swing is in the zone, but you’ll be too tweaked to make a good judgement about the wind, etc.!
-Use it too much, and you’ll suffer withdrawal if you skip (my tolerance is low, one cup a day and one day missed and the caffeine headache will be incapacitating!)
-If you aren’t careful, you’ll give yourself insomnia. That will really mess with brain function.
What to try instead?
Colloidal gold! It’s reported to support energy, memory, mood, focus, and more. It’s not the quick fix caffeine is, but it doesn’t have the side-effects of crashes, withdrawal, or cardiovascular stress that caffeine does, either. (In fact, if you have a caffeine headache, try a little colloidal gold.)
A teaspoon of colloidal gold daily can offer you consistent support throughout your training and practices. On game day, I like to go up to a tablespoon of colloidal gold!
