There have been so many studies over the years about how caffeine affects your brain. I'm not going to go into detail because I honestly don't understand it but basically:
Caffeine makes your brain more flexible and resilient. If you want to keep your brain healthy throughout the years, coffee, tea and cacao should be part of your diet.
Studies recommend a daily limit intake of 400mg of caffeine within a single dose. Therefore you can safely consume four to five cups (8oz/cup) spread out throughout the day. Ideally drink most of it before to 2pm so that it doesn’t disturb your sleep.
If you don't like coffee, then drink tea (hot or cold, green, black and white). You can also DRINK your chocolate with a nice warming cup of hot cocoa.
