Despite the fact that green tea is so healthy and has great benefits, there are contraindications that you should know. We list 5 reasons

Green tea is one of the best and popular beverages to drink. Many studies and dietitians have backed the claim that this soothing drink has multiple benefits and is great for your health.

It has antioxidants known as polyphenols, which help protect you from chronic diseases and the prevention of different respiratory diseases, the decrease in the chances of suffering from cancer, or the acceleration of the metabolism.

However, green tea is not recommended in all cases, and like any other drink or food it is better to know its contraindications to avoid any adverse reaction.

Despite the fact that green tea is so healthy and knowing which are the cases in which it is contraindicated, it will always be a better decision to go to a doctor and then to a nutritionist to show us what other elements we can substitute or to find out if there is any particular contradiction.

For this reason, today we have compiled a list of warnings:

People with sleep disorders

Green tea is a drink that contains theine, which is a type of caffeine that stimulates and energizes the body, so those who have difficulty sleeping, especially when it comes to insomnia, should not take it.

Anemic people

One of the effects of green tea is that it decreases the absorption of iron, which would be a big problem for people suffering from anemia, who need to increase iron in the body.

People with sensitivity to caffeine

Theine, as already mentioned, is one of the key components of green tea is a type of caffeine, for this reason people with sensitivity to this substance can be affected.

Hypertensive people

Green tea can increase blood pressure, so its consumption is contraindicated in hypertensive people.

Pregnant or lactating women

This is another of the contraindications that are due to caffeine, as this is a substance that should not be consumed by women who are pregnant or who are going through a period of breastfeeding.

In addition to reducing the absorption of iron and folic acid, two substances equally important for pregnant women.


If we do not belong to this group of people to whom the consumption of green tea is not recommended, we must also exercise caution when consuming it, because an excessive intake of green tea can also cause some side effects in people who are totally healthy.

Although there are recommendations that ensure that 5 cups of green tea a day should not be exceeded, consuming this amount can also cause stress on the body, for this reason it is better not to consume more than 1 or 2 cups a day.

On the other hand, we must always consider that no home remedy is miraculous and if what we want is to obtain the benefits of green tea, we must make our lifestyle as healthy as possible, maintaining a healthy diet, practicing exercises regularly, and carry out activities that help us maintain a mental and emotional balance.
