Attention coffee-lovers: While coffee is a wonderful beverage that is loaded with antioxidants and is linked with numerous health benefits (e.g. reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and liver diseases).
Caffeine is coffee’s active ingredient. Each cup of coffee contains an average of 80-to129 mg. The amount of caffeine considered to be safe is 400 mg a day.
On the other hand, consuming more than 500–600 mg per day can be excessive. This may overwhelm the nervous system, causing insomnia, nervousness, irritability, stomach cramps, heart palpitations and muscle tremors.
