How Much Coffee Is Safe — Can You Drink Too Much?
Wondering how much you need to drink to get these mentioned benefits and how much caffeine from coffee is too much?
A “moderate amount” for healthy adults maxes out at 500 milligrams of caffeine per day, which is about five cups of home-brewed regular coffee or a little more than one grande Starbucks coffee (which has about 360 milligrams).
For pregnant women, the amount is less — around 200 milligrams daily or less (but many pregnant women still prefer to have none at all). Most health experts recommend drinking between one and two cups a day ideally, which isn’t associated with negative reactions but seems to be beneficial for most people. Of course, for people with specific health conditions, much less or even none might be appropriate, but we’ll get to that later on.
******I think this article is something everyone should read and take with a grain of salt. It is one Doctors opinion, but i do believe he helps to bring a lot of the good of coffee to light. But with the amount coffee some students are drinking at MSU today, DR. Axe also beings out what happens later on in the article. Especially with Starbucks now having two locations in town i dont think ingesting to much caffeine will be that hard. healthy adults maxes out at 500 milligrams of caffeine per day, which is about five cups of home-brewed regular coffee or a little more than one grande Starbucks coffee (which has about 360 milligrams). So 5 cups at home or 2 at starbucks which is your choice? But for us causal coffee drinkers there is a lot of benefits to drinking coffee often!
