The benefits and harms of tea
"Tea contains caffeine bound to tannin. Therefore, it has a weaker effect on the body than coffee. But because of theophylline, tea provokes urination more strongly. Tannins bind iron," says Fuss.
1. Drink tea in case of iron deficiency.
2. Drink it with iron preparations and vitamin-mineral complexes.
How many cups of tea can you drink per day
"Safe tea consumption is up to three cups a day, if you don't drink coffee," the expert said.
When is it better to drink tea
"It is better to drink tea after meals than between meals. Because it is considered a snack. After all, anything that is not water is considered food," summarized Fuss.
