Get your Caffeine Fix Here!

Fact or Fiction?

The idea that caffeine is not good for you came from a study done decades ago.  More recently, carefully conducted studies that show no link between caffeine and heart problems. Now it is time for us to go through some “studies” done about caffeine and point out what is Fact and what is Fiction….

Does caffeine cause heart problems?

According to a comprehensive review on the consumption of caffeine, there is no link between the moderate consumption of caffeine and stroke or cardiovascular disease.  An average amount of caffeine in their eyes are 400 mg daily. If you would like to put that number in terms of something that makes sense, it is eight bottles of 3 Water or 4 cups of coffee per day.

Does Caffeine dehydrate you?

Caffeine is a mild diuretic. However, it alone will not cause dehydration. If you have coffee and do not hydrate, that will cause dehydration. The problem people run into is they tend to substitute their water with coffee. If you stay hydrated while you consume caffeine, you will be in the clear.

*Personal TIP – 3 Water came in for the save on this common problem. 3 Water is a caffeinated water with electrolytes and a high pH to keep you hydrated and focused all day long! If you drink two bottles of 3 Water, you get the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee without any dehydration effects!
