How Much Coffee Can You Safely Drink? Research Says 4 Cups

Coffee Supplies MN

Avid coffee drinkers across the country reach for multiple cups of java everyday. The health benefits of coffee are far-reaching, but there has been much discussion and debate on how much coffee is actually safe to drink on a daily basis. We may now have a solid answer.

According to a recent study released by the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), adults can safely drink up to four cups of coffee, or 400 mg of caffeine, every day. After substantial review of experiments conducted between the years of 2001 and 2015, it has been determined that those who stick to the 400 mg or less rule do not suffer from any adverse effects. If you occasionally exceed this limit, don’t worry, just don’t make it a habit.

As to what constitutes as a cup of coffee, this generally refers to an 8 oz mug. If you frequent the corner coffee shop and indulge in multiple grandes every day, you are probably consuming quite a bit more caffeine than is recommended.

The study also came to the conclusion that pregnant women can safely consume 300 mg of caffeine or less. If your kids like to sample your coffee, they can safely consume 2.5 mg in a day without suffering from any adverse health effects (besides for some added energy).
