how much caffeine is too much?

In recent years, the popularity of energy drinks has skyrocketed, but so has concern over their high caffeine content. According to the Mayo Clinic, excessive caffeine consumption, especially more than 4 cups of coffee a day (equivalent to about 400 mg of caffeine), can lead to a range of side effects like headaches, insomnia, nervousness, irritability, and even more severe symptoms such as rapid heartbeat and muscle tremors.

The CDC echoes similar concerns, stating that consuming up to 200-300 mg of caffeine daily is considered acceptable for breastfeeding mothers, which implies a general guideline for moderate consumption. This amount roughly equates to 2-3 cups of coffee. However, many popular energy drinks exceed these recommended levels, with some containing caffeine levels much higher than a regular cup of coffee, which averages between 95-165 mg per 8 oz serving.

In this landscape of high-caffeine energy drinks, our new energy drink offers a refreshing and health-conscious alternative. With only 90 mg of caffeine per serving, it aligns with health recommendations for moderate caffeine intake. This moderate level of caffeine is derived from the Cascara Superfruit, which not only provides a natural caffeine boost but also delivers antioxidants and essential nutrients.

Our commitment to a lower caffeine content addresses the public health concern over excessive caffeine consumption. It provides a sustainable and responsible choice for those seeking an energy boost without overstepping the recommended caffeine intake levels.

While energy drinks have become a popular means to gain a quick energy boost, their high caffeine content can pose health risks. Our energy drink, with its moderate caffeine content, offers a viable solution for those who are cautious about their caffeine intake but still seek the benefits of an energy drink.
