How Excess Caffeine Is Unhealthy For You

​Caffeine in the form of tea or coffee is very important for some people to start their day. While it's a great way to kick start your day, there are a number of cases where people become too habituated to it and lose control of how much daily caffeine intake they do. There are a number of problems that excessive tea or coffee can cause.

  1. Increased Urination Pressure: 

    Not many people are aware of the fact that too much caffeine impacts urination pressure and frequency. People who tend to consume more than 450 mg of caffeine in a day are known to have higher risk of incontinence than those consuming less than 150mg daily.

  2. Increased Fatigue: 

    The fact that tea and coffee are a great way to boost your energy level is their greatest advantage but it is also its greatest problem. Once the effect wears off, the natural fatigue level hits much harder and the more caffeine is consumed, the worse if fatigue once it wears off.

  3. Increased Heart Rate: 

    Since tea and coffee have a great stimulatory effect on your body, it also leads to a temporary increase in heart rate but if too much team or coffee is consumed, it will lead to a condition where average heart rate may rise up leading to heart problems. This is one reason when you buy health insurance online; sometimes they may ask you about your tea coffee consumption levels.

The big problem is that the more you consume caffeine, the lesser effect it has which means that in order to get results, you have to increase your caffeine intake overtime. If you do not get tea or coffee in time, you may also experience withdrawal symptoms. This is another facto that you may be asked to declare in some health insurance policy forms.
