πŸ€—β˜•The Magic Number is 400!β˜•πŸ€—

Yes, 400 mg caffeine is the max healthy adults should consume in one day. This is the number which several bodies (pun) agree on, including US FDA, Health Canada, and the European Food Safety Authority.

You may have seen those web page errors: “404: File Not Found”. Well, the error associated with 400 (our caffeine limit magic number) is “Bad Request”. So remember this: to consume more than 400mg caffeine in one day would be a BAD REQUEST.
