The energy balance is stimulated by hormonal concentrations, physical exercise and diet. Thus, the amount of circulating thyroid hormones (TH) in the bloodstream directly influences the energy balance. Caffeine and exercise have the effect of increasing TH concentrations, increasing the action of these hormones and consequently the energy balance. In addition, the reduction of physical exercise reduces TH values, leading to a reduction in the energy balance. The caffeine ingestion changed the metabolic homeostasis, there is a reduction of TH concentration, triggering a balance in the influx of cellular substrates and perhaps, a greater catalytic action of the energetic substrates, in tissues such as the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, as well as, a production and liberation of energy by the cell, due to the increased concentration of intracellular Ca2+ caused by caffeine [1].
