Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system—the body's communication line between brain and muscle. Through this stimulation, higher power can be attained for longer periods of time. Caffeine has also been shown to increase the flow of free fatty acids in the bloodstream, possibly sparing the body’s limited glycogen stores by burning fatty acids in place of glycogen.
