would the acidity of lemon / lime juice have any effect on the nutrients in the green tea?
doubt it, your stomach is more acidic than that
Adding milk/cream does though.
people add cream to tea? wtf?
Yeah, European homos.
Hey ! It's not because some guy likes to hang out with his male friends while having a cup of english tea in a flowery garden after a good cricket game on a sunny sunday afternoon that he's gay !
be sure to extend that pinky, dude
so does drinking/consuming green tea as part of a meal that includes dairy nullify green tea's effects at all. or does the milk product have to be mixed with the green tea pre-consumption?
I have no fucking idea. My guess is that it doesn't matter because it'll end up mixing in your stomach anyway. That's pretty much nitpicking though. If you're thinking about taking this into account, there are other more important stuff to be obsessed about.
Just get green tea extract? 2x daily for me
not the same
can't put anti-oxidants in pill form
I love green tea. I don't know if it's just in my head but I feel like it instantly makes me less bloated.
tea without milk =
well then pretty much every manufacturer is falsely labeling their product as they all say their product is standardized to X% EGCG
Milk in tea is fucking delicious, tryed it in 'straya.
I've never had milk in my tea. Much more flavour.
Then again I don't put milk or sugar in my coffee either.
While I doubt it would "instantly" make you less bloated, caffeine is a diuretic. It could possibly clear your head, which in turn makes you feel "less bloated".
Then again I don't normally feel bloated all the time so I'm not really sure what you're talking about.
I've NEVER put milk/cream in my tea and it is delicious!
news to me
Caffeine is regarded as a diuretic despite evidence that hydration is not impaired with habitual ingestion.
Relatively instant. If I drink some green tea with my meal I feel like my stomach empties faster than normal and I look more lean/vascular.
this isn't a scientific fact, but it only makes sense to me. You leave an apple open and it starts browning/oxidizing. I'd assume in the process of a making the pill they break these things down so much it loses nutritional value
the browning seems to be from the oxidation of iron contain phenols, similar to rusting in metal i'd assume.
the primary antioxidants in green tea are kaempferol and catechins (EGCG for the most part), and as far as i can tell (and my chemistry is rusty ) neither contain iron so they wouldn't oxidize like an apple
The fluid intake with tea/coffee negates its diuretic effect. Although it's a bit different for those who take caffeine pills.
