March Is Caffeine Awareness Month, How Much Is Too Much?
So this is a topic that is near and dear to what a lot of people 85% of americans or consuming caffeine on a daily basis.
So very, very common and caffeine could be found mostly in beverages, like 98% of people get their caffeine from beverages.

Have red bull.
I have a chocolate bar and i have coffee out.

So you might bring your coffee, stronger or less.
It's hard to know exactly how much but the average cup of eight ounce coffee is about 95 mg of caffeine.
Um now compared to red bull red bulls about 80 mg of caffeine, so it's actually less than that home brew called cup of coffee, and then you have the tea, which is actually the highest among all these.
Which is 100.
And then your brewed coffee at the coffee house is gonna be the highest.
I don't have an example right here.
But it's usually of around 180.
Mg per eight ounce of coffee.
Knowing the amount that we have, and just kind of paying attention to how much and also what time of day.
Are we having that as well so we can get some good
