Does green tea have any side effects?

Does green tea have any side effects?

Yes, from caffeine: Green tea has many health benefits, due to its antioxidant effects. There is evidence it can prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease, improve immune function, prevent tooth decay, lower blood sugar and stimulate weight loss. It is safe and generally well tolerated, but it does contain caffeine (though decaffeinated forms are available). Thus, the most common side effects are due to excess caffeine, including insomnia, anxiety, heart palpitations, nausea and vomiting. However, the amount of caffeine in green tea is about 1/4 the amount in coffee, so one will not likely experience such effects unless they drink large quantities. There is also the potential for large amounts of green tea to interact with certain medications- for example, it can reduce the effects of Coumadin (but then again, thousands of substances interact with coumadin!) and lower blood levels of lithium.

Are there any adverse side effects of drinking green tea?

Are there any adverse side effects of drinking green tea?

Watch caffeine: Green tea is proven to have remarkable health benefits because it's rich in antioxidant polyphenols known as catechins, as well as L-theanine which has a calming effect. In general the more the better but it does have some caffeine and too much caffeine can make you jittery, raise blood pressure etc. so consider decaf if drinking lots.
