This Sleep Awareness Week the Sleep Health Foundation is turning its attention to the role of caffeine in our society. Therefore we are asking “Could caffeine be masking a sleep disorder”. There can be a great deal of pleasure and positivity surrounding the drinking of caffeine. However there is also evidence to suggest that it’s time to turn the spotlight on caffeine and examine it more closely. Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance that affects the brain and behaviour. It can be found in many different drinks and foods. This includes tea, coffee, chocolate, soft drinks (particularly energy drinks) and some medications.
