·1 min

For many Americans, a morning routine is not complete without a cup of coffee. The average American drinks just over three cups daily. Some people opt for energy drinks or caffeine pills instead. However, there is a limit to how much caffeine a person can have. Overconsumption can lead to caffeine intoxication, which is characterized by symptoms like jittery fingers, a racing heartbeat, and, in rare cases, trouble breathing and seizures. It’s important to recognize the signs and factors that increase the risk of caffeine overdose to avoid it.
