Why should it be taken moderately?
Tea contains Tanine. This is a toxic element that has the ability to disturb the body’s digestion process. Usually, the secretion and juices are being affected by it. This element also has the ability to affect the body’s water content. This is the reason why the body may become even more rough and brittle.
Caffeine is also detrimental to one’s health. It can affect the nervous system. In such case, the person will be awake at night. This in turn will raise one’s blood pressure. Those people who had attacks of stomach ulcers and heartburn are at risk too. They should avoid too much of green tea because it may aggravate the whole condition.
There are also reported cases saying that green tea can cause fluoride poisoning. Having high levels of fluoride can be harmful for both bones and teeth. What is even worse is the fact that the said green tea can be very addictive. When one drinks up a lot of tea, it may lead to one to urinate excessively. The bad effect in this is that even though one urinates so much, the toxic elements are not really gotten rid of properly. The urine is being solidified in this. This is when uric acid is formed. This can get deposited in joints which may result to arthritis and gout.
Green tea may also cause giddiness, insomnia, sore throat, paralysis and blood impurity. It can also be bad for the teeth and gums. It can also be harmful for the liver and kidney. Headaches and lethargy may also arise. Sometimes, the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome are being aggravated as well.
The above mentioned are the sides that should be considered before taking green tea. Excessive drinking always has its negative sides. So, even in tea, drink moderately!
