Don’t Rely On Tea And Coffee For That Energy Boost, Says Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee
Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee suggests that you must not depend on tea or coffee for that energy boost.
Nutritionist Anjali encourages consuming herbal tea instead as they are not addictive
Tea or coffee addiction is a real thing. There are many people in the country who are obsessed with these two beverages. An ardent tea or coffee lover needs the respective drink right during the start of the day and many other times throughout. It's true that a steaming hot cup of tea helps you feel relaxed or your coffee keeps you active to carry out different day-to-day activities. However, this addiction could also be very harmful to your health. Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee shares a post on Instagram. She strictly says that you must avoid getting your dose of energy from tea and coffee every day. Instead, the health expert shares a few drinks that are on the healthier side.
Anjali Mukerjee says that tea and coffee give a false feeling of energy. This is like the kind of work cigarettes does. The nutritionist says that these are stimulants and yes, they are addictive. You may have up to 2 cups of tea or coffee a day if it makes you feel good.
She further explains, “One cup of instant coffee contains 60-70mg of caffeine and one cup of tea contains half that amount”. But if you end up consuming these beverages more than the mentioned amount, it will have a negative effect on your health. So how can you deal with the condition or what should you consume when you get the urge of sipping on such beverages?
Anjali Mukerjee states two powerful ways to boost performance and vitality levels through diet. It includes adopting simple food combining principles and having enzyme-rich fruit and vegetable juices. She also says that herbal tea, green tea, coriander and mint juice, coconut water, and orange juice would be preferred beverages as they are non-addictive, natural, and rich in nutrients and antioxidants.
As a concluding note, she mentions that eating raw foods also has a stimulating and energizing effect on the body.
