Caffeine Anhydrous Dosage


We expect that most of our readers are pretty familiar with caffeine anhydrous as we’ve talked about it on a few different occasions.  If you need some reminder or joined us after we talked about it, feel free to check out this article about what caffeine anhydrous is, this post about the different side effects you should be aware of, and this one about the best post cycle therapy treatments and methods, of which caffeine anhydrous is one.  What we haven’t really talked about is the dosage.  Different amounts of caffeine anhydrous can produce different results.  We’ve broken up three common dosage amounts into three separate categories so that we can better inform you on what to expect from each dosage and what you should be using the amount to accomplish.

Appetite Suppression – 100mg to 200mg daily (Twice a Day)

By splitting up your caffeine anhydrous supplementation to two equal amounts daily, you are able to keep an elevated level in your system.  Caffeine being a proven appetite suppressant can often lead to a reduction in body fat over time.  People who struggle with over eating or are having a hard time staying on a new diet plan often turn to caffeine and caffeine anhydrous to help stave off the annoying hunger pangs and urges to consume snacks [1].

We recommend ingesting soon after your breakfast and sometime in the afternoon to discourage overeating and promote healthy eating habits.

Fat Burning – 250mg to 400mg daily (Thrice a Day)

Not unlike the aforementioned appetite suppression supplement plan, you can influence fat burn by dividing up to 400mg of caffeine anhydrous doses into thirds.  Make sure you take some in the morning, right after breakfast and in the evening or late afternoon, before dinner.  Additionally, take the final third about 30 minutes before you workout, whenever that may be.  Elevated caffeine levels during a workout will lead to an increase of energy, allowing you to train for longer or more intensely.  Longer workouts means more calories burned.  More calories burned means more fat loss [2].  More fat loss means happier and healthier you!

Strength Increase – 450mg to 750mg daily (Thrice a Day)

If you’re looking to be able to break more personal records in the weight room, make sure you’re getting a healthy dose of caffeine anhydrous in your pre-workout.  So much like in the fat burning scenario, you’re going to way to take three even doses throughout your day.  The difference is, the doses are going to be considerably higher.  Raising your energy levels to a new standard limit will allow your body to exert more force, leading to increased reps of larger weight limits.  The result being increased muscle mass.  In this scenario, we believe it is absolutely paramount that you stay extremely hydrated all day long and follow up every workout session with a healthy post workout protein shake to help your muscles recover from the intensity of the strength training.  The caffeine anhydrous can have a miniature steroid like effect on your muscles and without sufficient hydration and protein consumption, your muscles are going to be extraordinarily sore [3].
