TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Green tea is one of the most popular healthy drinks. Unlike other tea varieties, it does not go through an oxidation process, so that it is healthier.

Green tea also contains a lot of minerals, vitamins, and has anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer.

Citing the Boldsky’s page, here are the best times to drink green tea to get the best benefits.

1. Don’t drink too early in the morning

Drinking green tea on an empty stomach in the morning can cause bad effects on the liver because of its high content of catechins.

Green tea has compounds called catechins, so the amount of green tea consumed must be controlled. The higher concentration of catechins can cause liver damage. Drink green tea in the morning around 10:00 to 11:00 pm or early at night.

2. Drink between meals

You can drink a cup of green tea between meals, for example, two hours before or after to maximize the nutrient intake and iron absorption. If you are an anemia sufferer, avoid drinking green tea along with food.

3. Drink before exercise

Green tea can burn more fat because of caffeine in it. It can increase energy so you can exercise longer.

4. Two hours before bedtime

Green tea is not a drink before bedtime since the caffeine can disturb your sleep. It contains the amino acid of L-Theanine which makes you awake and concentrate better.

The best time to drink is two hours before bedtime because this is the lowest metabolism moment and the green tea can increase it.
