Drinking green tea or match tea in moderation is shown to be beneficial to kidney health. However, consuming green tea in extract form (supplement) in high quantities could cause damage to the liver and kidneys; it is recommended to use caution when ingesting green tea in a concentrated, extract format. Limit the intake of green tea extract to less than 800 milligrams per day as doses above this amount may pose health risks.
Drinking too much tea in general can lead to the formation of kidney stones. Also, there is a debate between studies if matcha plant cause kidney toxicity or not. Some of them showed symptoms of nausea and kidney toxicity, while others showed potential protective effects. More studies need to be conducted before we reach any conclusion, but in my opinion, individuals drinking too much matcha tea need to reduce the consumption of it.
There have been concerns that drinking large amounts of matcha tea or green tea can cause kidney stones or kidney failure. However, recent research suggests that matcha tea and green tea do not pose a risk to your kidneys as long as your blood pressure and kidney function are normal. If you have any concerns about your kidney health, be sure to speak with a doctor or registered dietitian.
