green teaNothing is good in excess … How much to drink?

Although green tea has wonderful benefits, it is not good in excess. Dr. Zhang Zuo Feng, cancer epidemiology researcher at UCLA recommends to take 2-3 cups of tea per day (small tea cups, not mugs). His research shows that between 4 and 5 significantly reduce illness and even 5 cups helps to prevent cancer, but recommends that healthy people are 2 to 3 cups a day.

Another recommendation is not to drink it with your food, because green tea prevents the absorption of iron in your body, so if you take when you eat affect the iron you need. The recommendation is to take it between meals.
