Caffeine Plays Critical Role in Obesity and Depression, Says Researcher Phoenix Gilman


The #1 most socially accepted, legalized drug is caffeine. Both young and old consume it daily—and at an alarming rate—be it in their lattes, energy drinks, ice teas, sodas, etc. Yet caffeine is highly addictive and it drastically depletes serotonin, a major neurotransmitter that governs critical aspects of the brain’s ability to function properly.

Obesity is a frightening epidemic. Antidepressants are the most prescribed pharmaceutical drug. As such, researcher and international author Phoenix Gilman is urgently trying to inform others, through her book and interviews nationwide, that caffeine is contributing significantly to our health crisis.

Gilman says, “Caffeine, along with many other things, depletes serotonin. Side effects of low serotonin are numerous, ranging from carbohydrate cravings, binge eating, obesity, to anxiety, ADD, depression, alcoholism, and suicidal behavior—not forgetting, insomnia, PMS, migraines, increased risks for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and certain cancers. Shockingly, no one in the media is talking about this clinically proven research, research that has the potential to help millions live healthier. And though I’m thrilled to hear CA is considering labeling caffeine as a toxic substance, the awareness needs to go far beyond that.”

Therefore, please educate yourself. After all, knowledge is power! Knowledge can save your life!
