We are still receiving some emails with questions and comments
regarding teas, specially, green tea: if it’s safe to drink it,
which to buy, where to get it, and so on.
So, today, we’ll give you our final thoughts, will answer your
questions and share some of your comments so that all
To recap briefly, we said that green tea, like other teas, has
fluoride, something considered to be contra productive for the
We also said that Matcha green tea would be one the best, if you
ever opt to have a bit of green tea, because it has a low amount
of fluoride since it’s harvested in Japan, where the soil has very
low levels of this chemical.
Now, is that low amount low enough? This is something many of you
may be wondering. Actually, Judy, one of our readers, emailed us
asking, ‘is the amount of fluoride in Matcha green tea low enough
for me to take?’
Please understand that it’s hard for us to decide if it’s OK for
This is something you have to establish, and then make your own
In general, we think that green tea, specially Matcha made with the
young leaves of the tea plant (so it contains minimal amounts of
fluoride) could be a good beverage to take in moderation. A cup a
day, for example. We think that those millions of people in Japan
and around the world who are benefiting from this tea cannot be
wrong. But is it safe for you if you have problems with the thyroid?
Hard to tell hundred percent.
A fact is that green tea offers many remarkable health benefits,
and we believe that, if you want to have it, what’s important is
to know how to choose the best, and don’t over do it.
The good thing is that with this tea, you don’t need too much. You
could have as little as 1/3 tsp and see how you feel.
By the way, Karen, another of our subscribers said:
‘Thanks for the report on Matcha. I order mine from a company out
of Vancouver (muzitea.com) and theirs’ comes from Japan too! I always
have added cinnamon to mine to give it a little extra taste, plus
in an article from you regarding slimming foods it was listed’
Thanks Karen for sharing with us. Last week we also mentioned
mountainroseherbs.com, a reputable company that sells
high quality teas.
Now, speaking about cinnamon tea, which we said can make a
wonderfully tasty, warming and metabolism enhancer beverage,
‘If you use cinnamon to make tea, do you use ground cinnamon or
cinnamon sticks please? Thanks’
Cath, I use the sticks, one per cup of water and let it simmer, with
or without fresh ginger chunks for about 10 minutes.
In the end, it’s up to you.
I know, sometimes it gets confusing, you hear that this is bad
for you, then, turn your head and hear that the same thing is
not that bad.
Our approach is:
Use common sense, let yourself be guided by your intuition,
know your body, listen to its signals and act accordingly.
This is the best advice we can give you… what’s good for you might
not be that good for other people, so you have to go with
your own instincts, and experiences.
Next time we’ll talk about a unique root (which can be used to
make a tea), that helps to increase your metabolism and also helps
you to manage stress more effectively, to think more clearly, and
to enhance thyroid function, among many other things.
Stay tuned, don’t miss it.
