Hey guys, I had two questions that I have not been able to find an answer to. I have built up a big tolerance to caffeine this semester. Normally I would drink 200 mg from Nature’s Best TNTea, and that would get my mind fresh and ready for hours.
Now, though, I can drink it like water and feel no different than I had five minutes before. The other day, I had a cup of black coffee at a wedding, and next thing I knew, I got a buzz from one cup.
Neither of the caffeine sources were anhydrous, so they should really be the same thing. TNTea still does not have any effect one me even after drinking coffee the other day. Any idea why?
Question 2 - there is one guy who pounds down two TNTeas right before his workout because one does not do anything for him. Now, granted, he was a pretty big guy in terms of muscle and definition, but that’s 400 mg of caffeine in one shot.
Even though he does not feel that rush from 200 mg of caffeine, is it still affecting his system the way it normally would despite not feeling the mental buzz? I’m talking in terms of raised heart rate, ‘metabolic rate’, all that stuff that we cannot always feel happening.
Thanks for the input.
