UP Coffee

UP Coffee is a free application made by Jawbone to measure your caffeine intake.

It shows you how much caffeine affects your sleep according to your gender, weight, height, caffeine sensitivity and taking into consideration your bedtime target. Its also interesting to see how your caffeine levels change throughout the day and how long it will take your body to get ready for bed.

There is also a rubric with some interesting facts such as did you know that women generally metabolise caffeine faster than men, but not if they are on the pill — Good to know.

I am not a big caffeine consumer, i have got two cups of black coffee a day maximum which are widely enough to keep me awake until bedtime – I really like Ice coffee (slim version, no cream) during the summer though :)

Depending on your sensitivity to caffeine, even a small amount may engender undesirable effects such as anxiety and sleeping problems. Heavy daily caffeine use (more than 500 to 600mg) a day may cause insomnia, nervousness, irritability and stomach upset.

So watch out your daily caffeine absorption by downloading this app x x
