Here is an informative article worth reviewing.

The Truth about Green Tea
A Health Powerhouse or Mostly Hype?

The important note is that beverage experts suggest no more than 5 cups (40 ounces) of tea daily for a healthy adult, for a maximum intake of no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine daily. While green tea is likely safe for most adults in moderate amounts, too much green tea can bring about side effects due to the caffeine content.

The other important note is that green tea can also decrease the absorption of iron and folic acid. Therefore it is best to be drink tea between meals rather than using it as your mealtime beverage. Wait 1-2 hours between eating foods rich in iron and folic acid and drinking tea to maximize your absorption of these nutrients.

are you eating enough fat? because fat is what lets you get to use the protein and all of the fat soluble vitamins that you eat. to make sure you are eating enough fat, staying hydrated and getting plenty of sleep. and if your skin is still off you might want to check with your doctor.

-google first. ask questions later.

Hi all,

I m 29 years old have dark circles and my skin is dull..
I m vegetarian. Many people said that drink green tea this will help u to maintain weight as well as antioxidants helps from aging.
So, my question is there any drawbacks of taking green tea early in the morning i.e. empty stomach.
What are the other good options for vegetarian persons that maintains a good balance of proteins and vitamins

Thanks,
Navi
