Tea has been used for its healing properties in Traditional medicine for centuries. Moreover, recent research recommends that plant compounds in tea may play a role in reducing your risk of chronic conditions, such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Normal tea consumption is a very active choice for most people, exceeding 3–4 cups per day could have some negative side impacts.
Here I have listed some side effects caused by over drinking of tea:
- Reduced iron absorption. (Tannins found in tea can bind to iron in plant-based foods, reducing the amount that you’re able to absorb in your digestive tract. If you have low iron, drink tea between meal.)
- Increased anxiety, stress, and restlessness. (Overconsuming caffeine from tea may cause anxiety and restlessness. If you notice these symptoms, reduce your tea intake or try substituting with caffeine-free herbal teas.)
- Poor sleep. (Excess caffeine intake from tea may reduce melatonin production and disrupt sleep patterns.)
- Nausea. (Tannins in tea may irritate digestive tissue in sensitive individuals, resulting in symptoms like nausea or stomach ache.)
- Pregnancy complications. (Overexposure to caffeine from tea during pregnancy may contribute to complications, such as miscarriage or low infant birth weight. Herbal teas should also be used with caution, as some ingredients may induce labor.)
- Caffeine dependence. (Even small amounts of regular tea intake could contribute to caffeine dependence. Withdrawal symptoms include fatigue, irritability, and headaches.)
