    " I suspect their method is confused by a redistribution of blood from veins to arteries and capillaries. Caffeine lowers nitric oxide and serotonin, and so improves muscle tone of veins, reducing the passive accumulation of blood, and amount of blood in the brain, but it increases the brain’s oxygen consumption, and prevents oxidative damage. It couldn’t increase oxygen consumption as much as it does while reducing blood flow. " Ray Peat
