Green tea has been considered to be very helpful for weight loss and dieting. Many companies all across the globe have started manufacturing green tea. So what do you think makes this Asian Tea so popular? The first thing – this tea per serving has only 4 calories, which is amazing. The second thing that I and a lot of other people love is that fact that after having one cup of tea you feel pretty full. Another thing that this tea does is, it increases the metabolism of the body.

I am sure that all of you know all of these details by now. However, is it completely safe to have green tea 2-3 times in a day on a regular basis? There have been many studies that have shown how good green tea is to the human body and also what all can be achieve once you start consuming this tea on a regular basis. On the other hand there have been reports that show that green tea is not that great after all. Many experts state that if the intake of this tea is increased, it might cause side effects like: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fainting, stomach cramps, constipation. Besides all of these the major problem, which is really risky is : increase in the heart rate.

It is not like Green tea does not have caffeine at all. If your body is sensitive to caffeine then you should not have this tea in large quantities. This specially goes out to all the women. It is stated that consuming this tea can reduce the amount of estrogen in the body and cause problems during menstruation and even in pregnancy.

Also, if you have a kidney stone or have suffered from it in the past . It is suggest that you should avoid this tea. This is basically because stones in the kidney are developed because of calcium, uric acid or the amino acid cysteine. At least 2 Quarters of kidney stone are composed of calcium combined with phosphate or oxalic acid and green tea is very rich in oxalic acid. So make sure that you take the right amount of tea everyday and don’t overdo it.
