Study: Caffeine Apt to Bother Early Risers More Than Night Owls

Posted By on Sat, Mar 3, 2012 at 10:08 AM

Conventional wisdom says that caffeine disrupts night owls, but new research indicates that a few too many cups of joe will bother morning people a bit more.

A study in the journal Sleep Medicine asked 50 college students to record their caffeine intake and their sleeping patterns. Early risers were found to take much longer to fall asleep at night, as opposed to night owls.

The survey also found that some people cleared caffeine consumed in the evening from their systems within a few hours, but lunchtime coffee could still be in a person's system well into the night.
