We all like coffee, some of us LOVE coffee! But is it really love, or is it an addiction?
Here are some very important reasons why you should consider lowering your caffeine intake.
The recommended amount of caffeine is usually 400 milligrams per day for healthy adults. Caffeine overdose may occur if you ingest more than this amount. Adolescents should limit themselves to no more than 100 mg of caffeine per day. Pregnantwomen should limit their daily intake to 200 mg of caffeine, since the effects of caffeine on the baby are not fully known.
However, what constitutes a safe amount of caffeine differs for everyone based on age, weight, and overall health. The average half-life of caffeine in the blood ranges from 1.5 to 9.5 hours. This means it can take anywhere from 1.5 to 9.5 hours for the level of caffeine in your blood to drop to half of its original amount. This wide range in average half-life makes it difficult to know the exact amount of caffeine that can lead to overdose
