Are you addicted to caffeine and how do you quit this addiction?

23 Feb 2017

Associate Professor Rob Martinus Van Dam shared his knowledge together with Will Hawkins, Nutritionist at Push Doctor about the effects of caffeine addiction with The Tab UK. Prof Rob mentioned how the human body can become physically dependent on caffeine and if consumed regularly, people can become tolerant to coffee and would need a larger dose to achieve the same effects.

Both experts have agreed that coffee can have positive health benefits when consumed in smaller quantities.  In terms of estimating the exact amount of caffeine consumed to lead to being addicted, both experts point out that it will vary from person to person since there are “genetic and lifestyle factors” which can affect how quick you metabolize caffeine.
