For anyone who’s ever said that decaf just won’t do in the mornings, a new study might prove you wrong. New research has found that the buzz we get from caffeinated coffee might just be in our heads!

The study suggests that if we expect a certain effect from caffeinated coffee, we’ll act accordingly, even if we actually downed decaf.

To come to this conclusion, researchers gave coffee to 88 volunteers. Some were knowingly given caffeinated coffee, some were given caffeinated coffee but were told it’s decaf, some were knowingly given decaf coffee and some were given decaf coffee but told it’s caffeinated.

However, the people who drank the decaf coffee thinking it was caffeinated coffee did just as well on tests as the people who really did have the caffeine.

If you’re addicted to coffee…would you be willing to switch to decaf and see if this really works?
