Adenosine is a byproduct of brain activity that makes you feel tired, but caffeine is a substance that can block sleep receptors. It takes around 20 minutes for the caffeine to get through your digestive system and into your bloodstream. If you nap for 20 minutes after quickly drinking caffeine, you’ll reduce your levels of adenosine just in time for the caffeine to kick in.
