The FDA has set 400mg per day as a safe limit. That might sound like alot but so many product are high in caffeine that you can easily consume that much in just one premium beverage at your local coffee shop. 

In fact, overconsuming caffeine has become such a problem that the FDA recently took actions to protect consumers from too much caffeine. 

In general it is not recommended that children consume caffeine. But, they often do. In surprising ways.

Chocolate, as well as hot chocolate beverages, contain significant amounts of caffeine. While 12 oz of black coffee has over 200 mg of caffeine, the same amount of a hot chocolate beverage will contain 20mg – about the same as decaf coffee. Since caffeine is impacted by metabolism and body weight, that caffeine could have quite the stimulating effect on a child!

Yes. But only if you are a low or moderate consumer. Buried in the fine print of all the coffee studies is the caveat that the benefits only apply to people that don’t overconsume. 

Why? The more you consume, the more your body gets used to it. The secret that coffee companies won’t tell you: when you stop being addicted to caffeine, it will work better!

Caffeine withdrawal can be triggered in as little as 12 hours after last being consumed. And caffeine withdrawal can last anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks (on average). But some people who quit “cold turkey” have reported lingering symptoms lasting for months at time.

In fact, those that quit “cold turkey” will experience the worst symptoms and have the greatest chance of failure.

The FDA encourages those that wish to reduce caffeine to do so in a measured way that slowly reduces caffeine rather than trying to eliminate caffeine all at once.

It absolutely can be. There is a Facebook group of over 3k people devoted to “Caffeine Toxicity Death Awareness”. The FDA also too actions to protect the public from consuming too much caffeine. 

Symptoms of too much caffeine include:

  • insomnia
  • jitters
  • anxiousness
  • fast heart rate
  • upset stomach
  • nausea
  • headache
  • a feeling of unhappiness (dysphoria)

The amount of caffeine in decaf will depend on the bean and how it is brewed. 

Plus some commercial brands contain as much as 3x the caffeine found in grocery store brands. Those inconsistent levels of caffeine also make cutting back harder. You might not be getting the caffeine you think you are. Too much caffeine and you trigger caffeine addiction. Too little, and you trigger caffeine withdrawal. No wonder it’s so hard to cut back on caffeine!

The caffeine in coffee will vary based on the bean used and how it is brewed. In general, the FDA has estimated the caffeine in an 8oz cup at between 80mg and 100mg. 

However, national coffee shops generally sell larger coffee’s than 8oz per serving. A “tall” coffee is 12 oz. And a “grande’ is 16 oz. So, even using the same measure the FDA provides, that means you would consume between 120-150mg in a “tall” and 160-200mg for a “grande”. 

Specialty coffee blends like “blond roast” contain even higher levels of caffeine. While marketed as “less bitter” and more “flavorful”, expect to consume 50-60% higher caffeine in that cup:  

Caffeine in “average” 12 oz coffee = 120 mg

Caffeine in 12 oz Blond Roast = 270mg

When you consider the FDA guideline for “safe” daily caffeine consumptions is 400mg, you can easily consumer 70% of that amount in just one tall cup of coffee!

21 mg per serving.

About 1/6th the caffeine in an ‘average’ 12 oz coffee. Or about 2/27 of the caffeine in a 12 oz cup of a specialty coffee blend like “blond roast”.

But because CAFFEINEcontrol works faster than coffee, you can consume less caffeine and feel great FAST. Coffee makes you wait for it to be digested to get the impact of the caffeine. With CAFFEINEcontrol you will get the full effect of the 21mg in less than 5 minutes.

You will feel great fast and get just the boost you need RIGHT NOW instead of being overserved caffeine and being left jittery and sleepless later on. 

Microdosing is a term first applied to drug use. It was found that by consuming very small quantities of some drugs, you could get drug benefits without the “high”. Microdosing has since been explored in many different applications. It turns out that in many ways we are being overserved and there are benefits to consuming less, instead of more.

Since caffeine will work better when you are not addicted, the concept of microdosing caffeine allows you to consume less and still feel great since your body is not being constantly overstimulated with too much caffeine. 

Next time you drink a Coke, look at the label to see how much caffeine is in the can. Keep looking. Hint: it’s not actually listed on the label. 

Manufacturers are not required to disclose how much caffeine is in their products. That works out great for them. Do you know how they describe a caffeine addict? They call them “repeat customers”. 

Even if you take the time to research caffeine content, it can be confusing and misleading.  Did you know there is over 46mg of caffeine in a Diet Coke but only 34mg of caffeine in a Coke? But Diet Coke has no sugar and a Coke has 44 g of sugar (about 11 teaspoons). So the energy you might think is caffeine is just a sugar high. That explains why you feel that “crash” later in the day!

How fast caffeine can be metabolized will depend on factors like age, weight, and metabolism.

But in general, caffeine has a half-life of about 5 hours. What is a half-life? That’s the amount of time it takes for something to be cut in half. So, if you consume 100mg of caffeine, in 5 hours you would have 50 mg of caffeine still left in your body.

When you consume more caffeine that your body can metabolize, most will be eliminated in a quick trip to the bathroom. But smaller amounts will linger in your body tissue where it will come back into play later, when you try to rest and wonder how you can feel so exhausted but can’t fall asleep.

Much like coffee, the caffeine in tea will depend on the tea leaves and how they are brewed.

While some tea varieties are caffeine free, black and green teas are well known for their stimulation properties. 

Most studies have determined that levels below 100mg of caffeine a day are considered non-addictive

That should be considered a guideline and will vary based on factors like age, weight, and metabolism.
