Answer ( 1 )

  1. Caffeine is indeed a diuretic, but only for those who are not regular users of the natural stimulant. People who drink coffee habitually have a strong tolerance for caffeine and do not show a diuretic effect from it.
    A study conducted at Everest base camp (17,536 ft/5,345m) showed that the amount of urine passed was identical for caffeinated and non-caffeinated subjects. Both groups showed the same level of hydration. Therefore, caffeine does not appear to increase dehydration.
