Title: Is caffeine a efficient fat burner?
Post by: tkadm30 on 01/05/2017 10:23:41
quick question:

How do caffeine enhance oxidative metabolism?

At which dose do caffeine become toxic to cells?


Many thanks for your input...

The LD50 of caffeine in humans ... is estimated to be 150 to 200 milligrams per kilogram of body mass (75100 cups of coffee for a 70 kilogram adult)
LD50 = Lethal Dose for 50% of the population.
