Can children drink herbal tea? (green, mint, chamomile, etc.)

Can children drink herbal tea? (green, mint, chamomile, etc.)

Depends: Green tea is not recommended, it has stimulant properties. Chamomile or herbal mint is probably fine but there should be no real tea leaves in the products. You can also just mix a little ginger, lemon, and honey in hot water and kids enjoy it just as well as tea.

If 15 months old e beta thall baby take food with tea then the food iron will reduce or not? Which will be better black tea/green tea/tea with milk?

If 15 months old e beta thall baby take food with tea then the food iron will reduce or not? Which will be better black tea/green tea/tea with milk?

Calcium issue: Calcium from milk or milk products can decrease iron absorption. Therefore any foods or vitamins with iron will have decreased absorption of iron if given with milk or milk products. Wait half hour either before or after iron containing foods are given to benefit from iron. (By the way, milk should be the drink of choice rather than tea)

Hi! Been taking mega tea green tea supplement but now, trying to concieve. Can I continue taking it? Also just started prenatals. Thanks!

STOP TAKING NOW!!!: If you're taking "mega-t green tea fat burning supplement" stop now! Their web site says "do not use if pregnant" for good reason. It has not just green tea but several other herbs ; added caffeine. Caffeine reduces blood flow to the placenta ; causes low birth weight ; prolonged pregnancy. 1 cup of real green tea a day is ok, up to 4 if decaf, but take vit separately. See http://bit.

I drink at least two cups of hot tea (usually green tea) a day. Does this make me more likely to contract esophageal cancer? I don't smoke or drink.

I drink at least two cups of hot tea (usually green tea) a day. Does this make me more likely to contract esophageal cancer? I don't smoke or drink.

Hot tea: This should not really affect your predisposition to developing esophageal cancer. Green tea actually has antioxidants and helps maintain a healthy metabolism. It's great that you don't smoke or drink as these would definitely increase your risk. Have your Dr. Check the back of your throat if you have any discomfort

Is lipton black tea or green tea an appropriate treatment for ulcer or acid reflux?

Is lipton black tea or green tea an appropriate treatment for ulcer or acid reflux?

No.: Caffeine in tea (green or black) increases the damaging effect of our own natural stomach acid and will worsen both ulcers and reflux. Sorry. A proton pump inhibitor like prevacid/prilosec once a day will be much more helpful! Good luck!

Is black or green tea better?

Green much healthier: Green tea has been proven to have remarkable health benefits because it is rich in antioxidant polyphenols known as catechins, as well as l-theanine which has a calming effect. Black tea is green tea that has been oxidized and fermented, a process that destroys most of the beneficial catechins & theanine. In a sense, black tea is green tea that is spoiled.
