caffeine is NOT banned by the olympics/ioc.

"caffeine used to be one of the substances checked for by the IOC but the World Anti-Doping Agency removed caffeine from its list of banned substances in 2004. A urinary test that returned an amount of 12 micrograms of caffeine per milliliter was considered by the IOC as a deliberate attempt to gain an advantage. Although not banned, it is still being checked for and should the WADA find enough athletes that have an elevated level of caffeine in their system, they will revisit their policy to determine whether it should go back on their list of banned substances"

if that WAS the case, then almost ALL of the energy drinks would also be banned!

i'm getting to the point with these videos that a small number of porkies are being told to the gullible masses. please prove me wrong with the next video i watch!

Interesting, tea is my favourite but coffee beans can be wonderful too. Suzanne S, chocolate is of course a separate 'food group' especially dark chocolate!

Doesn't take much to figure out that taking a stimulant before a workout would make one exercise a little more or more energetically. A small amount of alcohol would have a similar effect. Many more substances could be added to the list. But it would be an unnatural way to exercise more.

I'm getting tired of these pro / con caffeine ads. Make up your minds.
