MILK Tea Vs BLACK Tea Vs GREEN Tea - Is Your Choice the Best?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ghaziabad
MILK Tea Vs BLACK Tea Vs GREEN Tea - Is Your Choice the Best?

Milk tea vs black tea vs green tea: which is better for your health?

Let's start with an interesting fact: all types of tea, be it green or black, comes from the same plant, camellia sinensis. The difference only lies in processing and oxidation. So how can one be better than the other you ask? let's find out.

1. Fluoride content
When it comes to fluoride content both green and black teas score high, while milk tea sadly loses out. Green and black teas are good for your teeth and bones, although black tea has higher fluoride content (0.2-0.5mg as compared to 0.3-0.4mg in green tea). Its best to have your black tea with tap water as it increases the fluoride content up to 0.9mg.

2. Antioxidant content
Yet again green tea and black both have high antioxidant content that helps in preventing cancer, but green is the clear winner over. Milk tea loses again as the milk in it effects the absorption of these antioxidants by your body. Green tea is enriched with a particular type of catechin (flavonoid) called egcg, which regulates gene activity in cancer cells, and may even prevent cancer growth.

3. Caffeine content
Both black and green teas have different amounts of caffeine in them. Green tea has lesser caffeine content than black tea- 9-41mg/cup in comparison to 14-61mg/cup. So if you want to have an energetic morning then black tea is the one for you, but if you want to relax your blood vessels and just enjoy a soothing drink, choose green tea. Milk tea unfortunately does not have a calming or an energising effect.

Benefits for your heart:
Black tea is probably the healthier option if you want to derive cardiovascular benefits from your daily cuppa. While green tea has abundant egcg which creates a lining along your blood vessels to reduce stress, black tea offers more benefits. Black tea can improve the function of your blood vessels if you suffer from coronary artery disease. Apart from that, both can lower the levels of harmful cholesterol. There's no evidence that supports that milk tea can be beneficial for your heart.

So in the end it's your call to choose black or green tea, whichever works best for you. Try avoiding milk tea as the milk steals away the essential health benefits of tea. Just remember to have no more than 10 cups of green tea a day, and no more than 4 cups of black.

If you would like to consult with me privately, please go ahead.

Hypothyroidism is a very common problem these days. Periods get disturbed due to hypothyroidism. But I advise you not to take allopathic medicines for periods as these r hormones and will create serious side effects which may create problems in pregnancy also. There is a wonderful ayurvedic treatment if hypothyroidism. U can msg me on my consult for more discussion and also send me the lab report.

Once visit nearest pharmacy. And take pregnancy kit. Please follow the procedure written on it. Then if it is positive you are pregnant. If it is negative you are not pregnant. Even though if you use condom if there is any damage in condom there are chances of conceiving. By which there can be delayed menstruation.

HEALTHY TIP
Weight loss.
Too much body weight puts your health at great risk. When you take in more calories than you burn, you get fat -- it's that simple. You've got to eat less. You've got to exercise more. You've got to push yourself to make these lifestyle changes -- but you've got to do it to help avoid serious health problems like heart disease, diabetes, or stroke.

Pregnancy can happen only on one day of cycle- on day woman ovulates. Means you had only 4 trials of pregnancy that too if you had sex on or around that day. That is why you have to give 12-18-24 months chance to nature depending on age of your wife.

How to ged rid of pcod problem.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Here is no cure for pcod or pcos, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatment goals are based on your symptoms, whether or not you want to become pregnant, and lowering your chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. Many women will need a combination of treatments to meet these goals. Some treatments for pcod include: lifestyle modification. You can help manage your pcod by eating healthy and exercising to keep your weight at a healthy level. Limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars adding more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet birth control pills. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills can help control menstrual cycles and to clear acne for women looking for pregancy: lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with pcod. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with pcod become pregnant. It is advised that you should consult gynecologist who can help you based on your symptoms and requirements to manage pcod.

If you are having irregular periopds it is difficult to calculate your ovulation date precisely. I would advice you to use a Ovulation kit to help you. Also you need to try hard and reduce your body weight.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist,
Vaginitis is actually inflammation of vagina ie redness, pain, itching and discharge. Reason could be any. Your doctor can tell after examining you by the nature of discharge if it's fungal or some other infection. Or she can do vaginal swab culture and sensitivity.

Hello I usually experience trouble during menstruation to be precise a week before that. What normally is said pms. It makes me feel hopeless, extreme mood swings anger irritation. Along with that unbearable back ache. Is this all normal or a warning sign?

BHMS, MD - Alternate Medicine

You must be unmarried I guess. This is rightly pms, and the unbearable backache can be called dysmenorrhea. You stop worrying and start homoeopathic treatment for the same.

Medically, none of the fruits are harmful. Eating or drinking juice from outside can cause stomach infection. If she has diabetes, then certain foods and fruits must be avoided.

Hello, The delay could be just stress induced. You may get evaluated for PCOD, HYPOTHYROIDISM AND HYPERprolactinemia which are common causes after pregnancy to cause delayed menses.
