🍌How Caffeine, Energy Drinks & Pre-Workout Stimulants Affect Your Testosterone – by Dr Sam Robbins
A little while ago I made a video entitled, “The Truth About Exercise: Does It Increase or Decrease Testosterone Levels?”
I highly suggest you watch that video if you exercise – whether it’s with weights and/or cardio. But I’ll give you the special link to that video at the end..
Now, an important question that was asked from that video was:
“I take pre-workout stimulants, how do those products affect my testosterone levels? I’m stronger at the gym because of it, does that mean it’s increasing my testosterone levels? What about adrenaline, good or bad?”
So this is a great question because I know a lot of people take “pre-workout stimulants” or basically, different products that’ll give them more energy, such as “energy drinks”.
Unfortunately, almost all of these products are just loaded with caffeine. Sure, they’ll have some vitamins and amino acids, but it’s all about the caffeine. That’s the primary ingredient that’s doing it all…. That’s causing the “stimulation” of your adrenal glands to produce more adrenaline and epinephrine.
Speaking of epinephrine, in the old days we used to take ephedrine, which is basically an amphetamine.
So, when taking such stimulants (pre-workout pills and energy drinks), your body produces more adrenaline/epinephrine, which triggers your body’s “fight or flight” response. This causes your air passages to dilate and open up more, which provides your muscles with more “energy” and oxygen.
Obviously, this is great for exercise
At the same time, adrenaline causes your blood vessels to get smaller and contract, to redirect more blood towards your muscles – including your heart and lung. This is one reason your heart rate speeds up and your blood pressure goes up with stimulants.
The end result is you’ll feel less pain – so you can push longer and harder, which is perfect when you’re exercising… or, if you’re trying to run for your life.
You’ll also become stronger and have heightened awareness. Again, all great for exercise.
Unfortunately, your body’s “fight or flight” response is NOT to be triggered daily. This is massive stress on the body. This causes a huge surge and increase in stress hormones, such as cortisol.
Now, keep in mind that exercise, in of itself, will cause an increase in adrenaline and cortisol. These stimulant products are now ADDING to this stress. This is EXTRA stress. So now, that’s double the stress on your body and endocrine system (hormones).
This is a bad thing.
However, that’s just the beginning of the negativity.
These days, most people already have adrenal fatigue due to an overproduction of adrenaline.
Our lives are very complicated now, compared to 100+ years ago.
We are getting bombarded with “stuff” all day long and being pulled in different directions, all the time… which is very stressful.
Which is why we feel overwhelmed and unmotivated.
