All those who love their caffeine are often gripped by guilt when it comes to their cup of indulgence. While views exist towards tea and coffee being both good and bad for health, lets assess how correct are these discussions:
Talking about benefits of drinking tea, researchers have found several health benefits that can be directly attributed to tea consumption.
While tea has a lot of benefits, caffeine can also lead to stiffening of arteries. Breastfeeding and pregnant women should avoid too much tea as it can affect estrogen content and in large quantities can even promote cancer.
Another rich source of caffeine, coffee also has several health benefits.
However, coffee consumption can cause heart arrhythmia when consumed in too much quantity, increasing risk of heart attack. It is also known to promote arterial stiffness. Coffee also causes extra urinary excretion of calcium leading to osteoporosis especially in women
As such, it can be concluded that both tea and coffee can be good for health but only when consumed in moderation.
