How much Tea?

Six to eight cups of tea are likely to give you a positive outcome but tea drinking or tea supplements do come with a caution for those sensitive to caffeine. Too much caffeine can cause over stimulation of the nervous system and its diuretic properties can cause frequent urination. A feature or a fault? For you to decide. A limit of two cups a day is advised in pregnancy and breastfeeding. If taking prescribed drugs then check with your doctor for possible interactions. For all the health benefits that tea provides, it is a great addition to anyone's preventative health regimen.
