Does Adding Lemon to Tea Reduce Caffeine? – Green Tea Quiz

Green tea is already a fantastic drink with its antioxidants; adding drops of lemon will give it a twist. There are rumors that adding lemon reduces the caffeine in green tea. Let's dive in and learn the benefits that green tea and lemon fusion can bring us.

Similar Health Benefits of Lemon and Green Tea

Green tea and lemon have antioxidants to fight toxins and are also beneficial for fat burning. These drinks reduce stress and anxiety, and many studies have shown that they boost immunity because both have Vitamin C. However, lemon increases the catechins in green tea. Regarding improving digestion, the citric acid in lemon slows down food absorption so the stomach can have more time breaking down food to get the nutrients for the body. Green tea's catechins reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and help prevent bloating. Both drinks reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Health benefits of Lemon

In contrast with green tea, lemon helps absorb iron from foods and prevent anemia. In addition, the citric acid in lemon may help prevent the formation of kidney stones. However, it is still best to drink green tea with lemon 30 to 60 minutes after eating if you need more iron in your body because green tea blocks iron absorption.

Health benefits of green tea

Green tea helps prevent diabetes, and its catechins help prevent cell damage and improve brain function. This drink protects you from getting Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Green tea has caffeine, which is a stimulant for an energy boost and mental alertness. Green tea has less caffeine than coffee, so its caffeine content is not that strong. Green tea's L-theanine, an amino acid, helps the person drinking it reduce anxiety levels and become calm. Antioxidants in green tea reduce the risk of getting breast, prostate, colorectal, and other types of cancer. When drinking green tea, the catechins inhibit oral bacteria growth, reducing bad breath. Green tea prevents us from having diabetes because it lowers blood sugar and improves insulin sensitivity.

Caffeine and burning fat

Active compounds called catechins enhance the norepinephrine in green tea, break down fat in the cells, and then these melted fats flow to the bloodstream. Caffeine increases lipase, which breaks down fats during food digestion. With catechins and a small amount of caffeine, your

Exercise and diet will not go in vain. In addition, you will have more energy to use for your daily activities because of the stimulant found in caffeine.

Lemon does not contain caffeine, and there's no study or evidence that lemon can reduce caffeine. Green tea has only 30mg to 50mg of caffeine in a cup (8 oz.) serving. There are also decaf green teas out there, although they still contain 2 to 3mg of caffeine. You will get all the health benefits from your drink when combining plain green tea and lemon, rather than just drinking decaf, where you have to check if the decaf method they use has no harmful substances.
