Caffeineted drinks comparative table:
heartburn symptoms and acid reflux
How you can see easily in this comparative table, the content of caffeine in the Fitness Coffee® is lower than the normal coffees on the market and similar to a cup of brewed tea or to some soft drinks. To achieve the best long-term benefits it's enough to drink the reccomended daily intake of 2-3 cups of 8-once (or 3-4 Italian Espresso of 2-ounce).
Warning: drinks with high caffeine content will cause more heartburn symptoms. Also bubbles in soft drinks will cause burping and more heartburn symptoms. In many case decreasing the soft drinks consumption is reccomended also in the normal daily diet, not only to avoid the useless calories (University of Iowa), but also to avoid the stomach dilatation.
