I found that when I drank coffee I experienced a yoyo effect. It would reduce some of the stiffness for a few hours (adrenaline?) and then after it wore off I would end up even more stiff than when I started. I'm not sure if it was due to trace starch, or that it dampen my gut immunity and thereby allowed bad flora to proliferate.

"Some men, in truth, live that they may eat, as the irrational creatures, 'whose life is their belly, and nothing else.' But the Instructor enjoins us to eat that we may live." -- Clement of Alexandria (about 200 AD)
