Are You Overdosing On This Everyday? Here's What Science Says...
There’s something most of us drink every day to give us an extra “oomph.”
It can help you power through a workout, a meeting, or basically ANYTHING that comes your way.
Or … it can leave you feeling drained, unable to sleep, jittery, and even in a sad mood.
You’ve probably guessed by now … it’s caffeine!
The good news: caffeine can be healthy and actually good for you … as long as you don’t drink too much of it.
For most adults, that’s about 400 mg (or 4 cups of coffee) according to the FDA, although some people are more sensitive to it than others.
I definitely start my day with tea and usually have at least 2 more throughout the day. I’m totally pushing that 400mg of caffeine limit and have experienced the effects of skipping a cup or two.
It’s the world's most popular psychostimulant. Stimulating your central nervous system heart, muscles, and systems controlling your blood pressure.
And caffeine is addictive.
Have you ever missed a day and wondered how you were going to make it all the way until bedtime before you fell asleep?
Or got a crushing headache because you skipped your morning coffee? Ugh.
PLUS … did you know that studies show drinking too much coffee in the morning is directly linked to feeling tired later in the day?
If you find yourself RELYING on coffee, tea, or energy drinks to get through the day, it might be time to rethink your routine so that caffeine becomes an “extra” instead of a crutch.
A routine that includes:
Healthy, energy-promoting foods (lean proteins, fruits & veggies, healthy fats, etc.)
Fresh air & sunshine
You CAN regain control over your energy and vitality. It starts by taking ACTION.
