And recently, a product with a similar concept is available also in the US. You can buy "Black Insomnia," as well as "Death Wish." Black Insomnia Death Wish

But are they safe for the human body? Probably, not. You should be cautious to its adverse effect especially you have a heart disease.

The limit of caffeine in a day you can take is said to 400mg. It is equivalent to four cups of regular coffee. In contrast, Death Wish contains 702 mg of caffeine in a cup.

Caffeine has several effects on the body. Taking much caffeine makes you hypertension. It will be a cause of myocardial infarction, at least theoretically. But, it is highly likely you are safe after taking this extreme coffee. The toxic effect of caffeine is too weak to have a fatal influence on your heart.

Nonetheless, there is a case of fatality due to excessive taking caffeine in Japan recently reported. I never recommend you to take caffeine excessively.

Some people pursues stimulus. It is a kind of addiction. The addictive tendency is often elevated with chronic exposure. If you are indulged in coffee, take a break for a while.
