How it works: In your brain theres something called Adenosine and it only wants to hang out with certain receptors. When these to get together, you get drowsy. When caffeine shows up, it attaches to the receptors so that Adenosine cannot. Your pituitary gland sees this and thinks there's an emergency so it tells the adrenal glands to produce adrenaline. In addition, caffeine bumps up your dopamine levels. The result, a caffeine high.
