Caffeine in coffee increases dopamine levels

It was known for many years that coffee stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine initiates the euphoria and feeling of pleasant that people often associate with their first cup of coffee in the morning.

Dopamine is known as a ‘feel good’ hormone and neurotransmitter that’s an important part of the brain’s reward system. Dopamine is related with pleasurable sensations, together with process of learning, memorizing, motor system function, and many more.

The observational studies suggest that the risk of developing depression decreases with moderate intake of coffee (equivalent to approximately 3–5 cups a day).

One of the mechanisms associated with decreasing the risk of depression is a neurotransmitter of dopamine that helps to control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers and also helps to regulate emotional responses. Caffeine consumption increases dopaminergic tone, hypothetically through an increase of dopamine levels in the body and the amount of dopamine receptors.
