Does caffein really boost ur energy? Some days when i feel tired i get coffee and it seems like it has no affect. I drink coffee every day too.
Body is used to it: Caffeine is a stimulant, but if you consume it daily, your body gets used to it, and the effect is not as great. In fact, caffeine can cause significant withdrawal symptoms in people (the "caffeine headache, " shakiness, etc.). In someone who never drinks coffee, for example, just a small amount can cause a huge effect. ...Read more
For what goals? This: is the far more important issue. Both promoted for symptoms; cure nothing, may promote other problems, especially if used frequently.

How many Monster Energy Drinks (caffeine 166 mg) (taurine 2000 mg) (vitamin B12 590%) (vitamin B6 220%) in a 8 hour period is considered dangerous?
Two would be tops: for the whole day. Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That's roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two "energy shot" drinks.

5 hrs ago had coffee, rarely have caffeine got shaky. 30 minutes ago had a couple sips of water now moderate pain around naval. Could it be from caffeine?
Caffeine: It is close to impossible that caffeine cause your sensation. The amount was probably too small to have any effect and that is an unreported effect in even large doses. My research used caffeine in a placebo study and we found people's expected effects were confirmed even in the absence of caffeine. What you think can make it happen. ...Read more
