Are You Drinking Too Much Coffee Per Day?

Coffee might be one of the most popular drinks in the entire world, which is crazy when one considers how much caffeine it has. Sure, it’s pretty darn tasty, and it gives you a lovely kick in the morning when you’re extra tired, but ultimately it’s not particularly good for you. Drinking it in moderation is okay, but how much exactly is considered moderation?

Depends On Your Tolerance

Coffee, with all of its caffeine, can be addicting, and a tolerance can be built up for it. For those who are quite new to coffee, we’d recommend no more than one cup of coffee a day. For those who have been drinking coffee for a few years, two or maybe three a day are alright. But if you’ve been drinking coffee for years and years, we’d say you can probably handle four cups as long as you do so responsibly.

Know Yourself

Then again, there’s another element to consider—not everyone is built the same. Some people respond to coffee a lot worse than others, even if they’ve been drinking their entire life. So that’s why we concede that it’s important to know yourself well. If coffee makes you antsy and puts you in a bad place, maybe you shouldn’t be drinking it at all. Or at the very least, minimize your intake.
