Caffeine acts on the central nervous system playing a role in alertness when tiredness occurs.
Many people consume caffeine everyday as part of their diet and it can cause mild physical dependence. If you’re used to drinking two cups of coffee a day and you give it up, you may experience some mild withdrawal symptoms, such as a headache or fatigue, for a couple of days1.
The maximum recommended caffeine intake per day is 400mg, from all sources.
