Is excess tea consumption over years can effect autonomic nervous system? Like provoking anxiety stress increased urge to pass urine?

1 Doctor Answered
Dear Lybrate User, Tea has caffeine content which acts as stimulator for nervous system and take it into a alert state. Yet it is not a direct direutic meaning the substance which stimulates kidney filtration hence urge to pass urine. On the contrary coffee has been identified as direutic substance more than tea coz of enhanced caffeine content. Excess consumption of any substance is harmful. But there are no scientific links known between anxiety n tea.
