Caffeine: Caffeine is both a drug and a food additive. It's a central nervous system stimulant, and also stimulates your heart and muscles, plus raises your blood pressure. It can make you feel more alert and awake for a couple of hours, but then your energy might crash -- especially if you're very sensitive to it. It's also an addictive substance, the most commonly used in the world.
