Are coffee and tea good or bad in case of anemia?
PROBLEMS WITH TEA AND COFFEE IN ANEMIA
Tea and coffee are not suitable for anemia
Green tea infusion is rich in tannins
Some drinks and foods are not suitable for people with anemia because they prevent or limit the absorption of iron from food.
This is because tea and coffee contain many tannins, a type of component that combines with iron and prevents its absorption.
People with anemia should not drink tea or coffee along with iron supplements.
Decaffeinated coffee and detined tea or tea low in caffeine (white tea, etc.) also contain tannins, so they are not suitable either.
What is good to drink with anemia?
It is recommended not to drink milk along with iron supplements because it also limits the absorption of iron.
