Mikulov Bio Cafe, Coffee and Sleep

Last week we found a newly opened friendly organic cafe and shop in Mikulov. Nice service, some nice products and organic coffee!

Zdravá Kavárna, Náměstí 18, Mikulov 692 01. Tel: +420 519 510 410

We both like an occasional coffee (organic because coffee is an expensive commodity, a reason non-organic coffee is heavily loaded with toxins from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides) but never later than lunchtime so that it does not effect our hormonal system – caffeine has a half-life of 6 hours, a double expresso at 14:00 is still a single expresso at 20:00, the time when our melatonin (growth and repair hormone) levels should be rising. Caffeine, sugar, tobacco are all stimulants which excite our sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response) and this triggers the release of cortisol (stress hormone). When we have cortisol in our body it suppresses the levels of melatonin.

Disrupting our sleep/wake cycles can result in adrenal fatigue. Contact us if you have problems sleeping or you can drink coffee or go to the gym in the evening and have no problems falling asleep.
