Green tea helps to relax, but too many cups a day can cause stress. Doctors draw attention to the fact that a large amount of caffeine provokes the production of stress hormones norepinephrine, adrenaline and cortisol.

In large quantities, the drink, according to doctors, can interfere with the absorption of iron and, thus, cause iron-deficiency anemia - a condition in which there are not enough red blood cells and hemoglobin in the blood. Therefore, experts do not advise drinking green tea immediately after a meal.
