When you get a good nights sleep and wake up in the morning, your body is low on energy. It needs food to recharge your batteries. In such a condition the first thing that many people do is have a cup of tea.
Different places drink different kinds of tea in the morning – black tea, herbal tea, milk tea and green tea being among the most popular types of tea. The one thing common – is that all of them are served hot.
Today we are going to explain why this is an unhealthy habit.
When you have anything on an empty stomach your body tries to digest it quickly considering it needs energy. Digestive juices are released to digest the tea. The digestive juices and the hot tea mix together inside your stomach and form a liquid which has an extremely low pH. This will slowly degrade your inner stomach lining. This can create stomach ulcers and is the perfect place for bacteria such as helicobacter pylori to settle in.
Now, because your body needs energy, it tries to absorb nutrients from the stomach lining which contain small blood vessels. This tends to lower the pH of the blood.
When you do this everyday it can lead to your blood pH permanently becoming low. This condition is called acidosis. This can cause severe problems in the kidneys and liver leading to lifestyle diseases such as gallbladder stones, varicocele and migraines.
The solution is simple. Every time you want to have tea, just eat something cooked along with it. Understanding your body will help you live a long and healthy life.
