Why You Might Want To Consider Giving Up That Morning Cup Of Coffee

November 18, 2015 2 min read

Starting your morning with a nice, piping hot, cup of coffee is second nature to many of us. In fact, for most, the day is impossible to face without it. If you've ever missed your morning caffeine fix, you know all too well the headaches and fatigue that can follow. Despite these withdrawal symptoms it might be wise to revisit and revise your morning coffee ritual. Caffeine is similar to adenosine. Adenosine is a chemical that links to cell receptors in the brain and creates a feeling of tiredness. In fact, they are so similar that caffeine can easily slip into receptors instead and completely block them off. Over time, ingesting caffeine can alter the chemical composition of the molecules in the brain. Big deal, right? Oh but it is. This can lead your brain cells to grow more adenosine receptors in order to maintain an equilibrium in the face of so much caffeine. Now that your brain has more adenosine receptors, it will take more caffeine for you to get your energy boost. This is exactly how people become addicted -- more adenosine receptors mean an increased feeling of fatigue which can only be fought with more caffeine, which is met with the production of more adenosine receptors. And round and round we go. [bctt tweet="Why You Might Want To Consider Giving Up That Morning Cup Of Coffee"] Another thing to keep in mind is that caffeine is highly acidic and can cause your teeth to yellow, no matter how vigilant you are with your oral care routine. If you are worried about your skin, coffee is not your friend. Daily excessive caffeine intake can also prompt acne outbreaks! If you'd like to kick your habit, start slowly. As with most addictive substances, going cold turkey may be too much. Try to cut your daily intake by 25% a week and within a month, you will be free. Start your day with a big glass of water and some yoga poses. These things will give yourself a natural energy boost. And before long, you will notice you're sleeping better at night and feel more refreshed during the day. Think of what you can accomplish if you aren't depending on chemical energy!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
