Milk and Tea, Not a Good Mix for Your Health


If you want to drink tea for its health benefits, then don't add milk. New research found in the European Heart Journal has found that milk counteracts with tea, making the tea not so beneficial. The reason is due to a group of proteins in milk called caseins, which interact with tea, decreasing the concentration of catechin (the flavonoids in tea that are responsible for its protective effects against heart disease).

Fit's Tip: If you need something to enhance the taste and remove the bitterness, add fresh lemon and/or honey.
