Ice Tea For Kidney Hazards

Who does not like to drink iced tea? Sweet refreshing taste, combined with cheap prices to make iced tea became a favorite drink in all the atmosphere, including during fasting.

The popularity of iced tea as evidenced by its presence in almost all the places to eat, ranging from small shop class to an expensive restaurant. Perhaps many who agree with the jargon of bottled iced tea, "Regardless of food, drinking still iced tea."

But you know, behind the ecstasy, ice tea keeps potential harm to health. Loyola University Chicago Stritch Research School of Medicine revealed that iced tea consumption in excess increases the risk of kidney stones.

As quoted from the page of the Times of India, iced tea contains high concentrations of oxalate, one of the key chemical that triggers the formation of kidney stones. "For those who have a tendency pain of kidney stones, iced tea drinks obviously be the worst," said Dr. John Milner, an assistant professor of the Department of Urology, which was included in the study.

Milner said the hot tea was also stores the same bad effects. Only, the rate of presentation of hot tea is usually smaller. Logically, people drink hot tea would not be as much iced tea. Rarely people who ate hot tea when thirsty. Unlike iced tea, where many people could drink more than a glass when thirsty and hot air.

Men, women posmenopause with low estrogen levels, and women who had undergone surgical removal of ovaries exposed to the most vulnerable adverse effects of ice tea. Therefore, Milner suggests, changing beverage consumption with white water, or mix it with lemon. "Lemon citrates rich content, which can inhibit the growth of kidney stones," Milner said.

Kidney stones are small crystals that form from minerals and salts that are usually found in the urine, kidney or urinary tract. Unused mineral generally get out of the body with urine, but under certain conditions can settle and harden in the urinary tract.

The researchers also revealed a number of other foods that have the potential to save a bad effect. They mentioned include: spinach, chocolate, nuts, salt, and meat.

Instead, the consumption of iced tea and foods that are moderate for kidney health. Combine well with foods high in calcium can reduce oxalate. And, of course multiply drinking water.
