Caffeine Maximum Daily Intake

Eating Healthy

Even though you just can’t start the day without some caffeine, you should stop and think about how much is too much. If you are a caffeine fan like us, then you need to know about the maximum daily intake of caffeine.  Exceeding this amount can have serious consequences.

According to many sources, up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day seems to be okay for  most healthy adults. That's about the amount of caffeine in four cups of coffee, 10 cans of cola or two "energy shot" drinks.

Try as hard as you can not to exceed that number, as you could end up having bad side effects such as insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, irritability, stomach upset, fast heartbeat, and muscle tremors.

However, just to be on the safe side, you need to know if you are particularly caffeine sensitive.  If you're susceptible to the effects of caffeine, just small amounts — even one cup— may result in undesired side effects like restlessness and sleep problems.

In conclusion, we know how hard it is to wake up and keep going without caffeine, yet you still need to make sure not to exceed 400 mg per day to avoid the downsides.
