Consuming a popular drink before exercise can cause blood clots

“For most people, caffeine is safe, and so is exercise,” Paul Nagelkirk, PhD, director of Ball State University’s Integrative Exercise Physiology Laboratory, told Runner’s World in 2019.

“Healthy adults currently enjoying the benefits of caffeine as a pre-workout or pre-competition routine have little reason to be concerned about blood clotting potential,” he added.

However, those with poor cardiovascular markers, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or a history of smoking, may wish to avoid caffeine around their workouts.

The link between caffeine and the formation of blood clots has been documented elsewhere.
