Caffeine: How Much is Too Much?

Are you curious as to how much Caffeine is to much to consume on a daily basis? The question often comes up if Matcha contains caffeine. So I did a little research and here is how we can best put this into perspective.

A Safe Daily Dosage of Caffeine

The American Chemical Society reports that the daily safe does of caffeine for a healthy adult is 400mg and 75mg for a 10 year old child.

This report went on to state that low dose caffeine effects are wakefulness, a little bit of arousal, and slight euphoria; while high dose effects are anxiety, irritation, and general mental discomfort a complete opposite.

According to a report by Chemical & Engineering News and published by the American Chemical Society (AEC), Starbucks Grand coffe has 330 milligrams of caffeine per cup, the medium-sized drink contains almost the entire “daily safe dose” of caffeine, which is 400 milligrams.

Put it in Perspective

To help put our daily consumption of Caffeine into perspective take a look at how a Starbucks grand coffee and other caffeinated drinks measure up. This will gives you an overall picture of caffeine sources and amounts per serving that you could be consuming each each day.

The Caffeine in Matcha

When looking at caffeine found in Bios Life Matcha, as a comparable source of caffeine, it is important to not only understand the difference in caffeine but also the amount of caffeine as well as the quality of caffeine.

The caffeine found in most drinks like Energy Drinks and Coffee are not the same as caffeine found in Matcha green tea. Here is just four of the many differences.

  • Amino acid L-Theanine

    The caffeine in Bios Life Matcha is a ceremonial grade Chi-Oka Matcha and is uniquely different in that the amino acid L-Theanine works in synergy with the caffeine found naturally in Matcha.

  • Alkalizing

    The caffeine in ceremonial grade Chi-Oka Matcha is alkalizing rather than the opposite—acidic.

  • Matcha Caffeine Slow Release

    This gradual and consistent release of energy from Ceremonial grade Chi-Oka Matcha provides the body with just the right amount of caffeine over a longer period of time rather than dumping a huge amount of caffeine into the body all at once. Matcha still has the same immediate boost, but not the extreme rush.

  • Matcha Caffeine Bonds with Nutrients

    Where the caffeine in Matcha forms bonds with numerous nutrients found in the matcha plant, so that it enters the bloodstream in a time-release fashion, leading to a steady level energy over 3-6 hours, rather than a spike and crash within 1 hour.

Now is the time to replace your soda, coffee and energy drinks for the healthy energy and health benefits of Bios Life Matcha green tea. Not to mention all the sugar you would be removing by eliminating these drinks.
