Why hot drinks aren’t healthy and what you should never mix them with

Must Read

Hot drinks pose a potential danger to the body when they exceed 37 degrees because they can cause burns to the mucosa, warns a nutritionist.

The specialist recommended being very careful when consuming hot beverages such as tea, which has tannic properties, and will acquire not only an unpleasant taste if it is combined or mixed with other products causing damage to health.

“If a fatty food is consumed with a tea so hot that it exceeds body temperature, the amount of fat that enters the body increases, bringing with it a negative effect on health,” says the nutritionist consulted by Revyuh.

It is also not advisable to combine hot drinks with alcohol because it not only causes burns, but can also cause poisoning.

If you combine alcohol with a hot drink, a burn will also occur. The second point is that the absorption of alcohol in a hot environment is much faster because the small vessels dilate. Consequently, intoxication occurs much faster. It causes a load on the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system, the organs of secretion, and, above all, the liver. Tea cannot be combined with alcohol because part of the alcohol can be absorbed with additional toxic substances due to the presence of tannins in the tea, explained by the expert.

Many people think they feel a bit more alert if you drink some caffeine, but it won’t have any effect on your blood alcohol level or the way your body clears alcohol from your system.

When you aren’t feeling alcohol’s full effects, you have a higher risk of drinking more than you usually would.

In turn, this increases your risk of other things, including driving while intoxicated, alcohol poisoning, or injury.

While you should generally avoid combining alcohol and caffeine, having an occasional Irish coffee won’t harm you.

Just be sure to consume these types of drinks in moderation and to be aware of not only the alcohol content, but also the potential caffeine content.
