Are There Any Benefits And Side Effects Of Eating Brewed Tea Every Day?
Hello, I want to ask my mother has a habit of drinking tea every day and almost never drinks water. And also my mother has a habit of eating brewed tea as a snack every day.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. For most Indonesians, consuming tea has become a part of everyday life. Almost every restaurant at least provides tea with various variations. Starting from being provided cold, warm, mixed with milk, and so on. This is not entirely wrong, because tea can indeed provide benefits for the body such as preventing clogged arteries, burning fat, reducing stress, preventing cancer cells, reducing the risk of cholesterol and so on.
But of course, anything superfluous is no good. Tea, like coffee, contains caffeine, which, when consumed in excess, can increase stomach acid levels, speed up the heart rate, cause sleeplessness and bone loss. By rarely consuming water, this also increases the risk of kidney stones and if the tea your mother drinks is given added sugar, it will increase the risk of diabetes or high blood sugar levels.
Our advice is that if there are no complaints so far, it does not mean that what has been done so far is healthy, and do not wait for symptoms to change your lifestyle. Maintain your mother's health in a balanced manner in everything, nothing is excessive and in accordance with the levels. However, plain water or mineral water is the healthiest and easiest to get drink option. Coupled with routine health checks every 6 months and regular exercise according to your ability, it will make your health and your family more awake.
So, hopefully it answers your question.
