(ORDO NEWS) — Tea is considered the most harmless and safe drink, but this is far from the case. Each drink has both benefits and some negative qualities. Sometimes possible risks cross out all the useful properties.
After analyzing each type of tea, specialists came up with a list of drinks that it is better to refuse, or at least limit consumption. So, the most harmful, to my great surprise, was hibiscus. He was put on a par with soda, alcohol and energy drinks. The thing is that the acid in the drink negatively affects the enamel.
Dentists provided 1000 of their patients’ teeth for experimentation. Each tooth was immersed for several minutes in a specific drink and the result was watched. The hardness of tooth enamel, which was several minutes in hibiscus, shocked scientists. If you want to keep your teeth, choose a different kind of tea.
The next most harmful on the list is puer tea. Due to the contained tannins, it has a bitter and “dry” taste. These same substances can provoke pain in the stomach, as they irritate the digestive tract. In some cases, even vomiting is possible.
The negative effect in each person is visible after a certain time. One is enough to drink a few cups of the drink, in the other – 4-5. Puer especially is not recommended for people with digestive tract problems.
Scientists have also identified green tea. No, it can’t be called harmful if you drink in moderation, and not replace it with all other drinks. So, green tea has bactericidal and diuretic properties. If you drink a lot of this drink, then not only harmful bacteria are killed, but also beneficial ones. The microflora in the body is disturbed, malfunctions in the liver and kidneys are possible. There have been cases of poisoning the body with green tea.
The safest is black tea, which does not cause any side effects. It should be the main one, and green should be “auxiliary” for the variety of drinks used.
