Tea with a taste of citrus fruits
Studies of the Journal of Food Composition and Analysis showed that tea from bags with a citrus aroma contains 30 times more than the norm of lead and aluminum. Agree, this is impressive.
The thing is that these metals have a very negative effect on the work of the kidneys and the heart. Therefore, if you like tea with citrus, do it with the addition of a real peel, and just forget about the tea pack.

Tea worsens the body’s absorption of iron. Strongly worsens, so this drink should not be taken after a meal. Give food a normal digestion, and only then go to tea.
Drinking tea immediately after a meal worsens the condition of the skin, hair and nails, so nutritionists advise drinking tea 40-50 minutes after eating.
It turns out that too strong tea can cause accumulation in the bones of fluoride. As a result, problems with teeth and bones may begin (they will simply become too fragile).
Therefore, if you like strong tea, drink it no more than 4 cups a day. More frequent use will negatively affect your body (of course, not immediately).
Drinking tea before bedtime
Many people think that tea does not affect the quality of sleep, and, fearing coffee before going to bed, drink it. But in vain. Doctors say that tea excites the nervous system and even if you fall asleep without problems, sleep will be shallow, and in the morning you will wake up broken.
Therefore, before going to bed, instead of tea, it is better to drink water. It just perfectly affects the body in the evening.
