Men feel the effects of caffeine just 10 minutes after consumption, and more strongly than women, according to a study by the University of Barcelona.
The study is the first of its kind to isolate the effects of caffeine according to gender. By doing so, it saw a significant difference between male and female accounts of the effects of caffeine, though it did not mention a theory as to why this was observed.
“Although both the men and women saw an improvement in their activity levels with the coffee, which increased in later measurements, we observed a greater impact among the males,” said lead author Ana Adan.
Previously, studies showed that the effects of caffeine took 30 to 45 minutes after consumption.
