The effects caffeine has on your health

Most of us can’t function without it, but how much caffeine should we be drinking?

A few cups of coffee poses no serious health risk for most people if they aren’t having more than 400 milligrams per day (that’s around four cups of coffee), with no added sugar.

But your caffeine intake could be impacting your health more than you realise.

How much coffee should I be drinking every day?

For some, consuming just one cup of coffee gives them more than enough of a kick. For others, it takes three or more cups to keep going. While caffeine does come with some health benefits (for instance, it is believed that it may boost long term memory), it can negatively impact your nervous system.

The majority of health experts agree that your caffeine intake should not be over 400-500 mg (four cups).

The effects caffeine has on your health

Considering a standard cup of instant coffee (150ml) contains 20-100 mg of caffeine, it may seem like you are well below the limit. But if you have a large specialised coffee, that may add another 300 mg of caffeine to your daily tally.

And caffeine isn’t just in coffee. It’s in Coca-Cola, and you may have a Jack Daniels and coke on the weekends – that’s another 30mg.

If you rely on energy drinks to get you through the afternoon, that’s another 100mg to your daily total. It quickly adds up.

Am I overdoing it?

In addition to keeping tabs on what you are eating and drinking, there are some common signs that you are going above your limit.

After all, while some people can handle 500 mg of caffeine a day while others may feel restless and a bit jittery after just 50mg.

  • Racing heart
  • Upset tummy
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision

If you feel your caffeine consumption is having an impact on your health, be sure to check in with your healthcare professional.
