Absorb Folic Acid

Is it true some types of tea can reduce your body’s ability to absorb folic acid?



Yes. Recent studies have shown that even small amounts of green and black tea may interfere with your intestine’s ability to absorb folic acid. Since this B vitamin helps prevent neural-tube defects, you may want to avoid drinking tea while pregnant.
