And not just starting it, it helps us a lot of us to keep going through the day as well. *Chugs third mug of coffee* But have you ever wondered why caffeine keeps us alert, or even how it works? Sure we know a fair amount about tea and coffee, but where exactly does caffeine fit into the food chain? And how does it affect our body?

Well, wonder no more because an informative and supremely enlightening video created by Ted-ED takes us through the caffeine process with an accurate animation video.
