We're all familiar with the alerting effects of caffeine. That's part of the reason we drink it in the first place. But understanding how caffeine interacts with our body helps explain its impact on sleep.
While we're awake, a hormone called adenosine accumulates in the body. As adenosine builds up, it causes us to feel sleepier. This is known as sleep pressure.
Caffeine has a similar molecular structure as adenosine, which allows it to bind to the same receptors. This temporarily blocks the sleep-inducing effects of adenosine, making us feel alert.
Loop is a circadian rhythm lamp that uses light therapy to regulate the body's natural sleep-wake cycle. Caffeine is a stimulant that can disrupt this cycle, making it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. However, using Loop can help manage caffeine's impact on sleep.
It resets the circadian rhythm. Exposure to the right type and amount of light at the appropriate times can help reset the body's circadian rhythm, which regulates sleep and wakefulness. By using Loop at the appropriate times, such as in the morning to help wake up or in the evening to wind down, you can help regulate your circadian rhythm and improve the quality of your sleep.
