Effects of Caffeine on the Body

Caffeine is a natural substance found in many plants, such as coffee beans, tea leaves, kola nuts and cacao pods. Caffeine is also man-made and is added to many of our foods and drinks. A lot of over-the-counter and prescription medications also contain caffeine.

400 milligrams of caffeine each day is the recommended daily allowance for adults to consume. 600 milligrams a day is considered too much. This is the equivalent of 4 to 7 cups of coffee a day, a standard size cup of coffee is eight ounces. If you are using a mug or getting your fix at a coffee house, this means that you could be drinking 16 ounces or even more a day.

How much caffeine is in each beverage varies a lot, so reading the labels are necessary. Every person is different on the amount of caffeine they can tolerate without side effects. If you have the same amount of caffeine every day, you could develop a tolerance to it. The tolerance rate is affected by your age, body mass, and any health conditions that you may have. Caffeine may also interact with certain medications and does not give the body any nutritional value.

Central Nervous System

Caffeine can get to your brain very fast and acts as a central nervous system stimulant. The most noticeable effect is alertness. This can make you feel wide awake and less tired, and is often a common ingredient added to medications to treat drowsiness.

Caffeine and headaches have a complicated relationship. A lot of caffeine may give you a headache, but your body forms a tolerance to caffeine. If you consume caffeine and then suddenly stops, it could cause a headache. Caffeine is used in some over-the-counter and prescription-strength headache and migraine remedies. If you drink coffee to recover from too much alcohol, caffeine does not help your body process alcohol any faster. If you are not used to alcohol, caffeine can give you some jitters or if you have sleep or an anxiety disorder, caffeine will make this worse.

Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal are anxiety, irritability, and also drowsiness. Sudden withdrawal may cause tremors, but this is rare. Caffeine can also cause an overdose, some symptoms of an overdose include confusion and hallucinations and can lead to death.


Digestive and Excretory Systems

Caffeine increases the amount of acid that you have in your stomach and may cause heartburn or upset stomach. It is also a diuretic, which is a trigger for your body to expel water. This is why it is not an excellent thirst quencher. Extra caffeine does not get stored in your body; it is processed in the liver and get removed through in your urine.

Withdrawal from caffeine may cause nausea and vomiting. Symptoms of caffeine overdose may include diarrhea, excessive thirst, and increased urination.


Reproductive System

Caffeine is carried through in the bloodstream and crosses into the placenta. Since it is a stimulant, it could cause your baby’s heartbeat and metabolism to increase. A lot of caffeine can also cause slow fetal growth and may increase the risk of a miscarriage. Usually, a little caffeine is safe during pregnancy.
Caffeine can cause painful lumps in the breast, which is called the fibrocystic disease. There is evidence that large volumes of caffeine can get in the way of estrogen production and metabolism, making it harder to conceive.

Circulatory and Respiratory Systems

Caffeine is absorbed in your stomach and moves into the bloodstream; the level of caffeine in your bloodstreams are at their highest within an hour or two after consumption.

Caffeine may make your blood pressure increase for a short time, but there is no long-term effect on blood pressure. If you have abnormal heart rhythms, caffeine may make your heart work harder. If you have high blood pressure or heart-related problems, you should consult your Doctor.

Overdosing from caffeine may cause rapid or abnormal heartbeats and breathing trouble.
