How much caffeine is too much?
The FDA recommends that adults consume no more than 300mg of caffeine per day (about the content of five .95oz Lightning Rods™). Of course, children and individuals sensitive to caffeine should consume much less. Having too much caffeine in your body can result in nervous issues, difficulty sleeping and a rise in blood pressure. We encourage Lightning Rod snackers to consume caffeine in moderation.
Who should not snack on Lightning Rods?
Just as with other high-caffeine products, we recommend that children, pregnant women and others with health concerns or caffeine sensitivity should consume Lightning Rods in moderation.
Can I become addicted to caffeine?
There are no studies that effectively prove that caffeine is addictive, and most would not have any physiological difficulties in quitting. Keep in mind, however, that caffeine is a stimulant and withdrawing from caffeine after a long period of heavy consumption could result in headaches and drowsiness.
Will caffeine dehydrate me?
Caffeine is a diuretic which can cause one’s body to become dehydrated. It is very important to drink plenty of water with both consumption of Lightning Rods and during your active lifestyle. Remember to always balance your caffeine intake with proper hydration.
