IS GREEN TEA SAFE ??
As green tea mostly considered to be safe specially for adults but today I am going to discuss some of the side effects of green tea. Like its other benefits as of improving the brain function, fat loss, lowering risk of cancer, etc it may turn out to be harmful for your body too. The orientation of green tea began in China tracing all the way back to 2737 B.C . This was found accidentally when a Chinese Emperor Shennong mistakenly drank water that had a dead tea leaf boiled in it. The highly flavored green tea eventually traveled West in the 19th century by European explorers. And today it became a common trend for people who want to live healthy.
Talking about some Advantages for which it is being used worldwide.
- Green Tea reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
- It lowers the risk of type 2 Diabetes.
- It kills bacteria which instead improves dental health.
- Helps in fat loss.
- Protects brain in old age.
- Antioxidants may lower the risk of certain cancer.

Now talking of its other face. The problem only start arising when the thing is taken in excess. The same is with Green tea also. One may suffer from medium risk problem to highly risky problems though. I would also be mentioning about people who shouldn’t be taking it.
PROBLEMS CAUSE BY IT :-
Green tea can cause headache in certain individuals as it contain caffeine. People suffering from migraine may consume it occasionally. One should avoid drinking green tea everyday if they suffer from everyday headache.If having caffeine sensitivity than too you should avoid it.
- STOMACH PROBLEMS
Green tea contains tannins hat can increase the amount of acid in your stomach. Excess of acids can cause digestive issues like constipation, acid reflux. Brewing green tea with water that is too hot can exacerbate these side effects. So brew it between 160 to 180 F.
- BLEEDING DISORDER
In rare cases green tea can trigger bleeding disorder. As compounds in green tea decrease level of fibrinogen. A protein that clots blood. Green Tea also prevents oxidation of fatty acids, which can lead to thinner blood consistency.
Excess of green tea causes vomiting and nausea. Avoiding consuming 4 cups of green tea a day if you are seasoned tea drinker.
- LIVER DISEASE
High consumption of green tea can cause liver damage. Experts believe that this is due to build of caffeine that stresses the liver. Avoid consuming more than 4-5 cup of green tea.
So these were the common problems that can cause due to over drinking of green tea. I am not saying that its harmful. But everything in its limits appear good.
