Can Green Tea Cause Anemia
Yes, but a caveat...: Green teas can contain polyphenols, which although serve as antioxidants, can also interfere with fe absorption. The caveat is that the two things (polyphenols and fe) need to be present together for this to really be a problem. If you are eating a balanced diet with adequate fe, and drinking green tea on occasion, I doubt you will have a significant effect from the latter on the former. ...Read more
Hello, I'm 23 years old and suffer from anemia/heavy blood loss. Does green tea have anything to do with heavy blood loss during periods?
Which alternative to tea with milk in the morning as I feel pain in my heart after drinking it I was diagnosed as a chronic anemia case?
Reflux: It sounds like you are having gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) which occurs when stomach acid comes back up into your esophagus, burning the lining.

Not that I know of: Unless they are testing for caffeine, which would rarely, if ever, be done. However, the label says that the ingredients are "proprietary" which means they don't have to tell you everything that is in it. However, I have never seen any reports of false positives secondary to any kind of tea. In any case, false positives on screening tests can be ruled out with confirmatory tests. ...Read more
Yes and No: Valerian root tea does have very mild sedative effects. Which makes it a tea to drink in the evening to help with sleep onset in those who need it. The relaxing effect is extremely mild and no where close to the sedating effects of alcohol. Green tea has not been shown to have any sedative effects. In fact it has some caffeine in it, so if anything it would have the opposite effect. ...Read more
