It’s the jolt that wakes you up in the morning or if you’re a student, the extra energy needed to help you study late into the night. If you’re like most adults, caffeine is part of your daily routine. But do you know how much caffeine is in your favorite drink? According to the American Dietetic Association, Americans consume on average 200 milligrams (mg) of caffeine every day. That’s about one to two cups of coffee. Drink a soda or energy drink for an afternoon pick-me-up and you’ve just consumed another 40-200 mg. Heavy caffeine can lead to health issues such as insomnia and stomach pain. Check out our new infographic and see if you should cut out some of your favorite drinks in the New Year.
