How To Prevent A Toothache With Caffeine

We’ve been keeping regular and safe caffeinated beverages for a long time now. You may have even noticed some new ones popping up in your fridge.

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant that has a number of health benefits. However, it can also give you a nasty caffeine mouth or chest ache if you over indulge. To prevent an ache, we’ve started using the caffeine powder from the tea bags, not the coffee, instead of the caffeine powder from the milk. We also use it at bed times before going to sleep to help us get some shut eye.

We recommend that you keep up these steps regularly! If you’re having a cup of coffee or tea every morning at least for 2/3 of your mornings, you should be okay. We’re not advocating excessive caffeine or taking a coffee break from your life, but you do not need to feel guilty for enjoying the benefits! We also recommend that you start a good morning routine. This routine can include starting on time, exercising with the goal of becoming more energetic, and trying some different kinds of coffee.

The most recent study we’ve read about is about the use of caffeine and cola products in the prevention of dental caries. The conclusion: “The use of cola products in the prevention of dental caries in children seems to be related to the consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks rather than to sugar intake.”

The authors conclude their article by suggesting that pediatrician’s should look for more data on dental caries prevention. They believe that more research on this topic is needed, but we do not recommend a sweetened soft drink per se.

One of the more significant side effects of caffeine is that it increases saliva production. When you have a sweet drink that contains much more sugar, your saliva levels may also be pushed to their maximum. This can lead to gingivitis or tooth decay; not so with coffee! 

Caffeine has been found to be a safe addition to some types of water, but in too much is not recommended when you’re drinking it throughout the day. 

This is especially true for people who are lactose intolerant and people with an increased salt intake. Some people also experience vomiting and diarrhea while taking caffeine supplements.

I should caution consumers and health care providers to be aware that caffeine can have negative side effects to those with a history of stroke or heart disease such as an irregular heart rate, palpitations, fainting or heart attack. Caffeine can also potentially cause nervousness, agitation, seizures, depression and even death in those who regularly take the drug with other prescription medications.

Caffeine is considered safe for the elderly, pregnant women and those with pre-existing low blood pressure, asthma, liver disease or kidney disease because experts know it does not contain known cancer-causing agents. Caffeine is also considered safe, although a higher dose may be necessary to suppress cravings.

For the treatment of obesity, caffeine has been shown to be safe when consumed in small amounts of 1 to 10 milligrams per kilogram of body weight; a daily total of 600 milligrams. Because caffeine in liquid form is digested rapidly for weight management efforts that often target the stomach and intestines, this treatment is often administered in conjunction with other weight-reducing medications.

In the last decade, more and more studies have been showing that caffeine does not seem to affect the quality of sperm or fertility. In fact, recent data showed that caffeine may increase sperm production.

For an increasing number of the American adults over the age of 18, they are consuming caffeine at a rate exceeding that recommended by the FDA.
