Oxalic Acid in Tea
The polyphenols in green tea help prevent hardening of the arteries, lower total cholesterol while raising healthy HDL cholesterol, and may help protect against certain types of cancer, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center 1. Also, bagged tea, because it has smaller pieces than loose tea leaves, releases more polyphenols during brewing than loose tea, according to Selene Yeager's “The Doctor's Book of Food Remedies. 2”
If you're allergic to soy, avoid citrus, decaffeinated honey lemon, cranberry pomegranate, orange, passionfruit & jasmine, lemon ginseng, honey and mixed berry flavors. These contain soy lecithin and emulsifier. Ingredients are subject to change, so check the box before you buy.
Individuals with heart problems, kidney disorders, stomach ulcers or anxiety disorders should not consume green tea, nor should pregnant or breastfeeding women, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center 1. Also, green tea may interact with other medications and herbs, so let your physician or herbalist know that you consume green tea.
