Therefore, this review aims to determine the effect of caffeine consumption on sports performance, types and dosage of caffeine consumed and the timing of its consumption among athletes and physically active individuals. Related studies were searched electronically using the following databases: EbascoHost, JSTOR, SpringerLink and Cambridge.
