Green tea has been promoted as the healthiest beverage of all. But, it can not be a tool for the multifunctional problem. It is neither a Nectar nor One solution for many health problems. It has got its own negativities. It leads to a digestive problem as it does put to the fermentation process and as such the tannins present are not removed that causes nausea and constipation. Adding some milk may reduce this problem. Green tea contains antioxidants - Catechins which block the absorption of iron from Food. this hinders the formation of red blood cells. This leads to Anaemia. Green tea contains caffeine like tea or coffee.

Hi Shiva! I actually like green tea. However, I think that everything should be taken in moderation. I usually drink green tea for healthier digestion. It is occasionally though, only when I had heavy meals during the day. I also drink just one cup, just before I go to sleep. I loved it even more when my husband made tea for me and added a mint leaf into my tea. It was heavenly.

Yes. you said rightly. Everything should be in limit. I thought that Green Tea is the best. But after reading an article I could realize the side effect. Of course, everything has got both advantages and disadvantages. Everything should be taken in limits only.
