Studies continue to indicate that the beverage may have some beneficial effects on your health but Caffeine is still a drug, and over-consuming can trigger adverse reactions in your body.

There’s nothing really to highlight whether you’ll be at risk of side effects, however, as some people are more susceptible than others.

People who don’t regularly drink coffee may develop side effects after consuming relatively small amounts.

“Coffee and tea are incredibly healthy beverages,” said nutritionist Franziska Spritzler.

She wrote for medical website Healthline:

“Most types contain caffeine, a substance that may boost your mood, metabolism and mental and physical performance.

“However, high doses of caffeine may have unpleasant and even dangerous side effects.

“To get the benefits of caffeine without undesirable effects, conduct an honest assessment of your sleep, energy levels and other factors that might be affected, and reduce your intake if needed.”

What are the side effects of coffee?

Frequent urination

Fatigue

High blood pressure

Digestive problems

Insomnia

There’s no set amount of coffee that you’re allowed to have each day.

But, generally, anything up to 400mg of caffeine each day appears to be safe for most adults.

A single cup of coffee might contain about 100mg of caffeine, so it’s advisable to avoid having more than four cups each day.

You should cut back on the amount of coffee in your diet if you frequently develop headaches, insomnia, nervousness or a fast heartbeat.
