WRONG TEA TIMINGS
Stop Having tea at these wrong timings:
1. EMPTY STOMACH: Tea and coffee are acidic in nature and having them on an empty stomach can disrupt the acid-basic balance which can lead to acidity or indigestion. Tea also contains a compound called theophylline which has a dehydrating effect and might cause constipation. After consuming tea or coffee, first thing in the morning, the bacteria in the mouth will break down sugar which will increase the acid levels in the mouth and can cause erosion of tooth enamel.
2. WITH MEALS: Tea leaves are acidic and will affect the digestion process. If you consume protein in the meal, the acid from the tea will harden the protein content, making it difficult to digest.
3. JUST AFTER MEALS: Drinking tea immediately after a meal will also interfere with iron absorption by the body. Avoid tea one hour before and after meals.
4. BED TIME: Tea contains some caffeine, which can make it more difficult to fall asleep. Drinking this tea before bedtime may also cause you to need to pee at night, which can interrupt your sleep, leaving you feeling tired in the morning.
