In brief: Improve mental funct

Caffeine has been shown to improve mental function.
It is not necessary without its side affects. It can increase your blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate, make you jittery and nervous. So it should be taken in moderation. Caffeine also has a slight addiction rate and you can experience migraines/headaches as withdrawl symptoms.

Caffeine can also shorten the length of time that you need to exercise at an aerobic level before you start to burn fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Typically 12 minutes instead of 15 minutes.
