Caffeine is one of the most popular substances in the world, and it’s no surprise why. It’s a standard energy booster that can help improve glucose metabolism. Sugars are known to cause higher spikes in your insulin levels. So when these two are consumed together, they can balance and sensitise insulin levels. Caffeine is found in beverages like coffee, tea and soda and is also available in pill form.
