When Too Much Caffeine

Consuming beverages that contain caffeine, it can generate energy. Even some people can not move, if not drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. But in fact, drink too much caffeine can be bad for your health. ? Ari study found that caffeine can increase the energy to move, but if too high an intake can bring feelings and negative effects on health, "said Erin Palinski, a nutritionist from New Jersey, cited in Prevention.Actually, when you consume too much caffeine, your body will 'tell'. That is, through some of the symptoms, such as the following.

1. Weakness in the afternoon 
If you can not move without consuming coffee or other caffeinated beverages, you may be addicted. When eating them in the morning, it will increase energy. But in the afternoon, the body immediately felt very weak.

2. Orange-colored urine 
The urine is dark yellow or orange is a sign that the body is dehydrated. ? Opi actually are diuretics that can cause kehidrasi, because the trigger you spend a lot of urine, so the body's dehydrated, "said Amy Gross, a registered dietitian from New York Presbyterian Hospital. 
Caffeine is usually not lead to dehydration, unless you eat more than 500 milligrams per day. Therefore, limit your consumption of coffee, a maximum of two drinks per day.

3. Feeling restless
Hands sweating, heart palpitations accompanied by feelings of anxiety is an indication that you have an overdose of caffeine. "Caffeine can worsen stress and depression because of sedative substances interfere with the brain chemical called adenosine," said Palinski. 
Caffeine can also act as a stimulant that triggers the adrenal gland to release more stress hormones like adrenaline. This hormone can increase heart rate and makes you more anxious.

4. Heartburn 
Acid reflux occurs when the muscles at the end of the esophagus, known as the lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid and food back up. This causes a burning sensation under the breast or known as heartburn. If this happens to you, caffeine could be the culprit. 
"Caffeine relaxes the esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid up into the throat," said Gross. Try to cut out caffeine altogether to see if it soothes your throat.
