Vemale.com – One of the healthy drinks and is known to boost immunity and has antioxidants that can counteract free radicals is green tea. This Japanese tea is mentioned is one of the healthiest drinks in the world. But is it true that healthy green tea?
Because a case once occurred in America that a 16-year-old teenager had to be hospitalized for drinking 3 cups of herbal medicine with the main ingredient of green tea at once. Mike Roussell, Ph.D., a nutritionist says that the tannin content in green tea can inhibit the absorption of iron in the body.
That means, the body can lack non-heme iron when you drink green tea in high doses or excessive. This means your body can not absorb iron from plants, but can still absorb iron from non-plant foods, such as meat.
Still, green tea has more positive benefits than its negative impact on health. And compared to coffee, green tea also has better caffeine content in terms of maintaining body awareness without speeding up (disturbing) the heart rate or causing bloating.
Green tea should also be taken after breakfast if you have a sensitive stomach, because some people actually experience diarrhea when drinking green tea on an empty stomach. But if your stomach does not have problems, it would be good if drinking on an empty stomach because it helps weight loss.
Every thing must have its positive and negative side, not least with green tea. Although it is healthy, but you also can not carelessly drink green tea. Similarly, when you consume excessive food, drinking excessive green tea is also bad for the body.
