Signs you’re Overdosed with Coffee

THE good effects of coffee can stir you to one more cup, and as you’re trying to beat the work deadline, you’re unmindful you’ve already consumed several cups.

Adverse effects of coffee overdose may not immediately manifest and harm your health but symptoms may appear and be noticeable.

Although coffee can boost mental alertness, being over-caffeinated may be harmful.

Some research has linked high doses of coffee to infertility and increased risk of hip fractures in older women. Because of some ill-effects of too much coffee, stopping it abruptly may cause irritability, fatigue, headaches, and even depression.

The American Dietetic Association recommends having no more than 300 mg a day, or the amount in about two or three 8-ounce cups of coffee. Even if you’re not a java lover, you may be getting caffeine from sneaky sources unknowingly like sports drinks, supplements, and even certain medications that contain caffeine.

To avoid serious health problems in the future, here are some common signs that you are being overdosed:

* Your energy plummets in the afternoon. If you can’t get through the day without a cola fix, you may be hooked on the caffeine. There is about as much caffeine in one can of cola as there is in a shot of espresso. Besides triggering major dips in energy, the acidity in soda can damage tooth enamel if sipped daily. Limit your cola to once a day to avoid hitting a wall in the afternoon, and brush your teeth if possible after drinking soda to help reduce its enamel-eroding effects.

* Your orange pee. Urine that is dark yellow or orange is a telltale sign of dehydration. Coffee is a diuretic that can lead to dehydration by increasing the amount you urinate so you lose too much body fluid. Caffeine usually doesn’t trigger dehydration until after you’ve had about 500 mg, so you should be safe if you stick to a cup or two of coffee a day.

* Hard to sleep. Caffeine takes about 45 minutes to one hour to get absorbed and it lingers in the body for several hours and can affect your sleep cycle. So if you take evening snack with coffee, you are cutting your sleep hours to more than two or three hours. And this also applies to all caffeine-containing substances like green or Chai tea, which may be a sleep stealer, too, because both beverages contain caffeine. Also keep in mind that decaf coffee and decaf tea are not caffeine-free. They both have about one-third the amount of caffeine as the regular kind.

* Anxious feeling. Try to feel yourself after you’ve consumed several cups of coffee in a day. Observe these signs if you have any: sweaty palms, a racing heart, restlessness, and feeling jittery – these are all symptoms of caffeine overdose. Caffeine also interferes with the brain chemical (adenosine). And it also act as a stimulant that triggers the adrenal gland to excrete more stress hormones like adrenaline, which can increase heart rate, making you feel more anxious.

* You have heartburn. Acid reflux happens when the muscle at the end of the esophagus (lower esophageal sphincter) allows food and stomach acid to come back up, causing a burning feeling under your chest. If this happens to you, caffeine could be a culprit because it relaxes your esophageal sphincter, which allows acid to come up in the throat.
