While tea is a popular beverage enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, it can also have side effects that may be harmful to your health. If you are someone who consumes tea, especially chai, as your first drink in the morning, here are four reasons why you must stop:
Caffeine addiction: Tea, especially chai, contains caffeine, which is a stimulant that can lead to addiction. Consuming too much caffeine can result in sleep disturbances, restlessness, anxiety, and irritability.
Acid reflux: Chai contains a high amount of tannins, which can increase stomach acid and cause acid reflux. This can lead to heartburn, bloating, and discomfort.
Dehydration: While tea is a hydrating beverage, consuming too much of it can cause dehydration due to its diuretic properties. This can lead to fatigue, headaches, and other health issues.
Risk of cancer: Some studies have shown that drinking hot tea, including chai, can increase the risk of esophageal cancer. This is due to the high temperatures of the beverage, which can damage the cells in the esophagus.
In conclusion, while tea, including chai, can be a flavorful and enjoyable beverage, it is important to consume it in moderation and be aware of its potential side effects. If you are someone who drinks chai as your first drink in the morning, it may be a good idea to switch to a healthier alternative, such as water or herbal tea.
