Green Tea and Nausea
Many people often complain about symptoms of nausea arising from consuming the herb Green Tea, available in tea leaf form or in concentrated tablet form. Generally the number one reason for this is dehydration. Green tea has a diuretic effect and this means that if an individual does not consume enough water each day or consumes many other substances such as tea, coffee, alcohol which greatly reduce the amount of readily available water in the body, then this problem may arise. Although tea and coffee are made on a base of heated water, depending on how many cups are taken each day, the strong diuretic effects of black tea and coffee cause a dramatic loss of water in the body. It is a general recommendation that if you experience nausea from Green tea then slowly introduce it into your diet (starting with one cup/ day), ensure adequate hydration and take after a meal rather than on an empty stomach when the liver is not stimulated.
