    Is TEA healthy?

    Many of us have a doubt whether TEA is good for health or not.

    As our Medical books always say, a Medicine or food doesn't have the same effect in all individuals, and vary from person to person, but not so much, but to a small extent

    Similarly use of Tea has some advantages and disadvantages according to age and gender of the individuals..

    Am not going to tell u here the components of Tea and in short the advantages and disadvantages of the components, so that u can decide Tea fits you or not.

    Tea leaves have a group of compounds called Catechins, Flavonoids, Theophylline and also Caffiene.
    These compounds help in effective functioning of the body and are said to be good for health.

    At the same time, Tea leaves have Phytates and Tannates which inhibit the absorption of Iron, which results in Iron deficiency.

    Though this Iron deficiency doesnot produce any effect much in Men, it is bad for menstruating girls and women.

    So it is advised for these girls and women to decrease the use of Tea.

    N if u cant avoid tea, Just have Tea 2 hours before or After food, so that the Phytates and Tannates do not decrease the Iron absorption frem your Food..

    Re: Is TEA healthy?

    Several health and fitness benefits have been allocated to tea for more than 100 decades. In individuals solutions, the health and fitness benefits of tea were already recognized 5000 decades ago and it was used as a treatment for capturing diseases, the typical freezing, and also as an aid to the abdominal and troubled techniques.

    The primary benefits of tea can be discovered in the fact that it is a absolutely natural item, without any included herbs, colors or preservatives. Furthermore, when consumed without such as any sugar, child or use products, tea has no calories and at the same time performs as a essential factor for maintaining the stability of body drinks.
