Therapist and nutritionist Galina Volkova advised not to drink tea in the evening.

Nutritionist Volkova suggested that Russians more closely monitor the amount of caffeine consumed per day. According to the doctor, drinks such as coffee and tea should be consumed in limited quantities. In particular, Volkova noted that one should not drink more than two cups of black or green tea per day.

“Regarding tea, it is recommended to drink no more than two cups of black or green tea. You can also drink herbal tea,” the specialist specified in a comment to RIA Novosti.
In addition, Volkova recommended not to abuse coffee. She stated that in the absence of contraindications, a person can afford a cup of coffee per day.

It is dangerous to take any caffeine-containing drinks or foods in the evening, as they can cause insomnia, the doctor stated.

In addition, the nutritionist said that coffee and tea should be consumed without added sugar, otherwise they can cause sharp fluctuations in glucose and insulin levels in blood. In addition, it will be useful to avoid drinking packaged juices and carbonated drinks; their constant presence in the diet contributes to the development of insulin resistance and obesity.

The portal previously wrote that some drinks in the heat thicken the blood and increase the risk of thrombosis.
