Thanks for addressing this for me.
I have always been curious on how much is considered norm. I drink it b/c I know it is a diuretic but I have also learned it it helps lower blood pressure and I need that!
In the article I am reading on it says the caffeine acts as the diuretic.
I actually really like it! You can buy it reg, caffeine free, or mixed. I put splenda in mine to sweeten it.
Here is the health effects and the link where I found it
