The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine. Caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream 45 minutes after the initial intake. Once absorbed into the bloodstream caffeine can impact your body in the way that it creates a sense of wakefulness and alertness.
Most Americans drink on average more than 200 milligrams of caffeine daily. That is equal to 2 cups of coffee or 6 cans of soda. Most of these Americans are getting their daily intake from at least one cup of coffee. Check with your own doctor to find out what daily caffeine levels are healthy for you.
Different brewing techniques, beans and the amount you’re brewing all affect how much caffeine is truly in your morning cup. However, there are estimates so that you don’t ever accidentally over do it.
