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

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.

Again recheck. If reconfirms then she is pregnant. How many days period is late? if its below 50 days form last period start date then there are tablets for abortion. Consult a local gynecologist. Thanks.

I am doing unprotected sex since 5 month but not getting pregnant. Performed all the test for body check up like theoride, cbc but every thing is ok. Please suggest if any problem.

Pregancy is possible only on one day of cycle that is the day on which you ovulate. Means when you say 5 months actually it is just 5 trials. Couple has to give 12 to 24 cycles time to nature then if pregnancy does not occur detailed reports are required, then treatment. Both reports and treatment require lot of time means you- both should go to gynecologist or infertility specialist in whom you have trust and meet him/her repeatedly with patience.

I pill is only for emergency. It is not regular family planning method. Taking repeatedly may disturb hormonal status. Not to worry, but important to know about different family planning methods and decide one of them as per her-and partner's needs. Best is to meet Gynecologist.

Now that summers are knocking the door than we thought to remind you the benefits of drinking adequate amount of water.
Drinking water is advantageous in every way. It assists metabolism & digestion, prevents constipation & accumulation of waste products(aam) in the body & keeps away diseases & even helps in keeping the skin clear of acne & pimples.

Hi precum can also cause pregnancy so always use protection. If you miss your period then get a pregnancy test done after a week or so.

Hello, It is better to get a serum beta hcg test done to rule out pregnancy first and if negative then the burning can be due to vaginitis.

Your age is 22, on the lower rungs of reproductive period. Every pregnancy is precious and in women with higher age near 30 plus it becomes more precious in primae gravida or other with bad obstetrical history. Any viral infection during pregnancy, especially measles and german measles carry high possibility of foetal anomalies hence abortion is considered as an option after doing anomaly scans at suitable ante natal time. In case you don't wish to keep the uncertainty of abnormal outcome, you may discuss it with spouse and take an informed decision.

Dear user. I can understand. Please understand, humans cannot make twins even if they try their level best. there are no medicines fr that nor there are sexual positions or techniques that result in twin. So therefore do not waste time, energy and money by going behind such an idea. Go ahead with normal sex and if god wants you to have twin, you will have twin. Take care.

There is a possibility of fungal infection. Use candid-B ointment twice daily locally after washing the area with clean water. If symptoms do not resolve within a week please consult a Gynaecologist.

The risks depend on a lot of different things, including how many sexual partners you have, your gender, and what particular oral sex acts you engage in. Oral sex can be an enjoyable, healthy part of an adult relationship. But there are some things that many people don't know about oral sex. Here are four facts that might surprise you. Several sexually transmitted diseases (stds), including hiv, herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, hpv, and viral hepatitis can be passed on through oral sex. Oral sex is linked to throat cancer.

How can I get aware from hiv. Is it harmful to do sex without condom? Please guide me

MBBS

Of course you can get hiv if you have unprotected sex with strangers and if you are having only with your wife then no need of protection too but make sure you are not planning for a baby then it's mandatory to have protected sex.
