    Tea

    Hi fellas my friend told me that tea, whether green or black, washes your body of nutrients. Is that true, cause I drink like 3-4 litres of tea a day.

    why would it?

    I know tea has tanic acid. Other then that, I dunno what could be so active in tea.
    It sounds like it can be reactive with protein (in a positive or negative way).

    yes, drink it. it has antioxidants. it doesnt necessarily "wash the body of nutrients" but it will help to flush out excess ones, hence the phrase taking a piss.
