Lemon Tea: A Wise Choice For Better Health

Tea is a popular and refreshing beverage many enjoy, but its nutritional value can be impacted by additives such as sugar. Simple sugar can cause a spike in glucose levels. Lemon tea, however, is a better option as it contains very few carbs when taken without sugar. And even lemon tea without additives can cause a low food score if you’re hypoglycemic. Here’s how you can optimise it.

Optimising your tea time
• Tea without sugar will help avoid large spikes in your blood sugar levels.
• Avoid pairing your tea with sugary confectioneries and try fibre-rich foods like beans, sprouts or makhana (popped lotus seeds).
• If your glucose range is not within 70-110 mg/dl, try avoiding tea altogether.

Intake of high amounts of sugar in regular beverages like tea was negatively associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes and increased weight. Hence, choosing lemon tea can be a healthier choice. By avoiding additives to tea and pairing it with healthier options like lemon, you can optimize the nutritional benefits and avoid any negative impact on your blood glucose levels.
