Can Drinking Tea Frequently Lead to Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are an extremely unpleasant health condition, that requires following a certain diet and proper treatment, so that it can be controlled and accordingly, alleviated completely.

People who have kidney problems should be especially careful not to let these problems develop into stone formation.

In this sense, the consumption of tea has been the subject of a number of studies and so far expert opinions define tea as contraindicated in cases of kidney stones.

That's why:

Tea is considered a harmful drink for the kidneys, because of the high content of oxalic acid and oxalate in its composition. These substances are thought to stimulate the formation of stones. This is why it is believed, that excessive consumption of tea actually creates a favorable environment for stone formation.

However, there are always exceptions.

According to some recent studies, it appears that green tea can be consumed by people with kidney stones. This is because this tea contains a compound that prevents the formation of stones.

Green tea is even considered a preventative against kidney problems. If consumed daily, it can reduce the risk of kidney stones by several percent.

This is due to the crystals derived from calcium oxalate, which prevent the compound from clumping together and forming kidney stones.
