Did you know… caffeine is old school?
Like, really, really, really old school. Long before hipsters sipped lattes in coffee shops, sleepy folks around the world used caffeine they found in nature – like coffee berries, tea leaves and kola nuts – to stay stimulated. For thousands of years, in fact.
But chewing on plants for a boost is so 1100 A.D. – lucky for you, Vivarin packs all the caffeine you need in one tablet, one gulp.
But how much caffeine is safe? Good question. On average, most people who consume caffeine get about 250 mg of caffeine each day. Vivarin comes in at 200 mg of caffeine per tablet, which is about the same as a cup of coffee.
Too Much Caffeine? It’s Easy to Avoid.
You can have too much of a good thing! With too much caffeine you could start experiencing some side effects like increased heartbeat, anxiety, nausea, insomnia and dizziness.
Keep track of the caffeine your are consuming and cut back if you need to.
The Truth About Alcohol and Caffeine Safety
You’ve worked hard all week – you deserve a night out! But don’t use caffeine and alcohol at the same time. It might seem like the perfect way to stay pumped and loosen up at the same time, but these are two ingredients that shouldn’t mix.
It all comes down to basic chemistry: caffeine is a stimulant and alcohol is a depressant. Guess what happens when the two mix? You throw your body out of whack.
The caffeine masks your alcohol “buzz,” so you end up drinking more than you should. You’ll miss out on some natural signals from your body that you’ve had too much, which can put your blood alcohol levels way too high.
On top of that, both caffeine and alcohol are dehydrating – which makes it hard for your body to metabolize the alcohol. At the very least, you’ll end up with a bad hangover the next day.
