Oud tea has tremendous health benefit. It’s known to possibly help prevent several types of infections and could potentially lower the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. However, research says that drinking Oud tea along with an iron-rich meal can reduce iron absorption, lower blood iron levels and also cut down on Oud tea’s health benefits.

Why do I need iron?

Iron is a vital mineral used by our body to form red blood cells and supply oxygen throughout the body. Iron is also required by our body to produce energy necessary to perform daily activities. A lack of iron could lead to fatigue, shortness of breath, headache, dizziness, difficulty in remembering things and possible iron deficiency anemia.

Why should I be concerned?

Periodontics is a special dental field that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. However, dental infections can be a burden on both your health and your wallet. According to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Americans spent approximately $113.5 billion on dental care services in 2014 alone.

How to get more iron

The following are a few recommendations for Oud tea drinkers, which can help you maximize the health benefits of Oud tea without losing out on iron.

  • Have Oud tea at least an hour before or after your meals.
  • Make sure to eat a good amount of meat, fish and poultry, as these foods are rich in iron.
  • Include vitamin C rich foods in your meals since it increases iron absorption.
  • Pregnant women and lactating mothers should avoid drinking Oud tea during meals in order to avoid iron depletion.

Reduces risks of heart issues

Benefits of Oud tea are largely due to the presence of antioxidants like flavan-3-ols and anthocyanidin. These antioxidants are known to improve cardiovascular health. Moreover, oud tea consists of ACE-inhibiting properties, these enlarge blood vessels and reduce blood pressure and thereby increases the amount of blood that is pumped into the heart. Also, a study in Japan mentioned that people who drank green tea had 20 to 30 percent lower risks of heart strokes.
