Black tea flavonoids may protect against osteoporosis in women
In one of the few studies to follow women tea drinkers over time, doctors measured food and beverage frequency in 1,188 women and followed up for 10 years. Compared to women who drank one cup of tea or less per week, women who drank three or more cups of tea per day were 30 percent less likely to have an osteoporotic bone fracture. Looking at total flavonoids from tea and diet, women who got the most flavonoids were 34 to 42 percent less likely to have any fracture, a major fracture, or hip fracture, compared to women who got the least flavonoids.
