Tea for bone health
Earlier population samples suggest a link between drinking tea and good bone density, but there are few long-term trials. In this study, doctors measured the diets of 1,188 older women and followed up for 10 years. Overall, about one in four experienced a serious fracture. Women who consumed three or more cups of tea per day were 30 percent less likely to have had a bone fracture compared to those who drank one or fewer cups per week. Also, those who got the most antioxidant flavonoids from tea and diet were at least one-third less likely to have any kind of fracture.
