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.

GreenEyedGuide Caffeine Challenge Day 9/10 – Fatigue Level 2 and Benefits of Tea vs Caffeine

For the 2nd-to-last day of the GreenEyedGuide Caffeine Challenge, we talk about FATIGUE LEVEL 2 and the benefits of GREEN TEA vs benefits of CAFFEINE.

Fatigue Level 2 is one of my favorite levels because there are so many great, healthy options – there are so many caffeinated beverages that don’t even seem like energy drinks because they are fueled by green tea, green coffee beans, or coffeeberry/coffee fruit.
See https://greeneyedguide.com/tag/fatigue-level-2 for examples

Through this challenge, you’ll learn how to use the 5 Levels of Fatigue to reap the benefits of caffeine while avoiding addiction, dependence, tolerance, and toxicity.

***PLAY ALONG-share your favorite “energy drink in disguise” or Fatigue Level 2 product on Instagram/ Facebook/Twitter and tag @GreenEyedGuide,Β or add your pictures to the Caffeine Challenge Event page at Facebook.com/GreenEyedGuide/events

GreenEyedGuide Caffeine Challenge Day 4/10 – How Caffeine Saves Lives

March is Caffeine Awareness Month! For Day 4 of the GreenEyedGuide Caffeine Challenge, we talk about how caffeine can SAVE LIVES!

One of the most important reasons to use the 5 Levels of Fatigue is so you don’t build up a tolerance, so caffeine will still work for you when you need it the most! It’s also important to remember that the 5th Level of Fatigue is Zombieland, in other words, that point at which there is no amount of caffeine that can save you. At that point, only sleep will help.
