CAIRO, Sept. 29(SEE)- Caffeine is considered to be the most used drug in the world and proved to be very efficient in all fields especially in athletics and academics.
There is a lot of research done on both humans and animals on the effects of caffeine, and there is often thoughts that too much is bad could prove to be vital . There is no conclusive evidence to implicate caffeine consumption as being significantly harmful to health, but there still is controversy with this, as there is still some negative effects associated with caffeine consumption.
Negative effects of high caffeine consumption.
Increased amounts of caffeine lead to dependency due to increased tolerance and hence the need for greater amounts to gain the same stimulant benefits. Heavy users who have to go without can experience withdrawal symptoms such as headaches and fatigue. Too much caffeine can produce restlessness, nausea, sleep difficulties, upset stomach, and cause dehydration, and cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).
Positive effects of moderate caffeine consumption.
Caffeine is a central nervous stimulant and can have some positive effects on the human body. Caffeine in low doses is thought to be associated with an improvement in sporting performance, increased alertness and reduction in fatigue potentially lifting a person’s mood. Coffee and tea also contain some antioxidants which have positive effects on heart health. Science has proven that drinking about 400 mg of caffeine throughout the days is safe, but crossing the mentioned dose can prove to have vital results.
