4 Negative Side Effects of a High-Caffeine Diet, Watchung, New Jersey

Although we’re a fast-paced culture in need of coffee, soda, and energy drinks, excess consumption of caffeine can actually have a negative impact on our diets. At Ultimate Health & Weight Loss in Watchung, NJ, nutritionists recommend moderation when it comes to caffeine intake—especially if you’re getting your fix via sugary sodas and energy drinks. 

 

Four Negative Side Effects of Consuming Too Much Caffeine

 

Heartburn

Caffeine relaxes the esophagus, which can often lead to heartburn. Ingesting caffeinated beverages on an empty stomach can also cause indigestion and other stomach problems.  

Restlessness & Anxiety 

Most people consume coffee and other energy drinks to get a jolt of energy when they first wake up; however, drinking too much caffeine leads to the jitters and restlessness throughout the day. As a stimulant, caffeine increases the production of adrenaline hormones in the body. This produces heightened sensitivity to external stimuli and often results in feelings of anxiety, as well as racing thoughts, confusion, and even rambling speech.

Dehydration 

Caffeine increases blood flow dietto the kidneys, resulting in the need to urinate more frequently. People who drink too much caffeine urinate often and may also have bouts of diarrhea, which also causes dehydration and disrupts the body’s balance of electrolytes.

High Blood Pressure

According to a study funded by the American Heart Association, caffeine raises one’s blood pressure, even in individuals who are otherwise totally healthy. Doctors recommend limiting coffee consumption to 24 ounces per day; they also encourage people to avoid drinking coffee before or after exercising, which naturally raises your blood pressure.

Weight loss is one of the many reasons people drink excessive amounts of caffeine, but it’s not the healthiest way to do so. If you want to lose weight safely and keep it off, turn to Ultimate Health & Weight Loss in Watchung.
