Too much of a good tea?

Green tea is renowned for its health benefits, but you can overdo it.
Green tea is renowned for its health benefits, but you can overdo it.

While we're regularly told to increase the helpings or proportion of fruits and veggies that we digest on a daily basis, it is possible to have too much of a healthy thing. Just as with weight management supplements, a balance of the right ingredients and portions is key.

Take green tea, for example. The leaves are packed with antioxidants as well as some nice pick-me-up caffeine, and have been researched by many leading universities for their health benefits. According to Harvard University, the tea has been shown to reduce the risks of skin, breast, lung and even colon cancers, as well as the chances of heart disease.

However, recent reports featured in Health Magazine showed that drinking more than 10 cups (or 180 fluid ounces) per day of green tea can be harmful, especially for people who have sensitivities to caffeine or suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia.

Additionally, a great deal of green tea in your body can actually reduce your ability to absorb folic acid, a B vitamin that helps the body make new cells. Being a top ingredient in leafy greens as well as most fruits and nuts, folic acid is also a key nutrient for expectant mothers, as it can help a baby's brain and spine healthily form, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Health fads will come and go, but the supplements created by Natural ProcessTM are developed to help you maintain your weight and health for the long-term. No matter what diet you're trying, our supplements are here!
