As a rule, it is suggested that healthy adults can safely consume about 400 milligrams of caffeine per day, about the equivalent of 4 cups of brewed coffee. Too much caffeine can leave you feeling jittery and “wired,” which is counterproductive if you are trying to stay focused and get through a busy day.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a brewed cup of 8 ounce coffee contains between 95 – 200 milligrams of caffeine, depending on the strength and type of coffee. As for energy drinks, independent studies have found that not only do most energy drinks contain much higher levels of caffeine than a cup of regular coffee – as high as 242 milligrams – some contain considerably higher levels than they list on their labels. This means that people are pounding down coffee and energy drinks thinking they are getting much lower levels of caffeine than they are actually consuming. This is a potentially dangerous situation, as increased heart rate and high blood pressure are common side effects of caffeine.
Side Effects of Too Much Caffeine
The high caffeine content in many energy drinks often causes side effects, including:
- rapid heart rate
- increased blood pressure
- frequent urination
