J. Oolong Tea and Words of Caution
Notwithstanding all of these good things oolong tea can do, you should note this tea tends to be very caffeine rich, which may not the healthiest component of this healthful drink. (But caffeine in moderation is an antioxidant.) Caffeine treats many people differently, but some of the side effects of excess caffeine are headaches, anxiety, sleeplessness, diarrhea, heartburn, irregular heartbeat, and confusion.
Other considers include that some serious conditions may be exacerbated with overuse of caffeine. These may include diabetes, heart conditions, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, and high blood pressure.
Also, drinking too much oolong tea can actually force out calcium which your body is processing. For osteoporosis patients this can theoretically quicken the process of bone degradation, even though other components of oolong tea help that condition. In moderation there is balance. It is best to use it as a preventative method for bone health, rather than a treatment.
This is just a cautionary note. Drink several cups of oolong tea a day if you want, because it might be just the thing to improving your health, and it is indeed a delicious and relaxing.
That being said, be aware that there is caffeine, and monitor your body’s response as you change in your diet, just like you would with all new foods and nutritional sources.
If you should find a decaffeinated brand, remember that the decaffeination process does more harm than good.
