Health Tip: Understanding Caffeine

Posted January 11, 2019

(HealthDay News) -- Caffeine in limited amounts is OK for most people, but too much of the stimulant can be dangerous to your health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.

The FDA adds:
  • Caffeine is found in many foods, including various beverages and dietary supplements.
  • Coffees and teas labeled "decaffeinated" can actually contain 2 to 15 milligrams of caffeine in an 8-ounce cup.
  • Pregnant women and people who take certain medications should be aware of their doctor's recommended caffeine consumption.
  • The FDA suggests consulting a physician about the safety of children consuming caffeine.
  • Caffeine should not be used as a substitute for sleep.
  • If you want to cut back on caffeine, do so gradually to avoid unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
