Familiar with the jittery feeling that comes from too much coffee? Really overdoing it on the caffeine can amplify this effect until it’s truly harmful.

Too much caffeine, whether from coffee, tea, or energy drinks and supplements, can cause heart palpitations, dizziness, confusion, and even heart attacks.


4. Star Fruit

Normal consumption of this fruit is just fine, but large amounts can trigger what’s known as “Star Fruit poisoning.”

Symptoms include vomiting, hiccups, low blood pressure, weakness, convulsions, and, in extreme cases, kidney failure. These symptoms all occur because star fruit acts as a depressant on the central nervous system, similar to alcohol.

5. Kombucha Tea

Often taken for its probiotic powers, kombucha tea can have some unexpected side effects when consumed in excess. First, the lactic acid in kombucha can actually trigger panic attacks in people who are sensitive to it.

Additionally, there is a small but very much present amount of alcohol in kombucha.


While you would have to drink a lot of kombucha to get anything approaching a hangover, it’s still important to be aware of. Moreover, home-brewed kombucha can be easily contaminated by mold and bacteria.
