A CUP OF TEA FOR OSTEOPOROSIS…

Well as if we did not have enough reasons to drink tea, they are now saying that tea can also be the ultimate bone builder for women with Osteoporosis.

Apparently new research based on more than 3,000 women shows that ‘those who had the most flavonoids in their diets had denser and stronger bones’.

Drinking tea and eating fruit and vegetables can give you stronger bones and therefore less problems with Osteoporosis.

Until now the role of flavonoids which you can find in fruit, vegetables, tea, nuts and seeds, had not actually been investigated for their role in the bone and health of humans. But a recent study showed that tea was the ‘main’ source of flavonoids to the diet.

Actually how the fruit and vegetable work is not clear, but the antioxidant effects some flavonoids have are thought to be involved.

According to Save Our Bones the best bone building and health enhancing teas include White Tea, Hibiscus Tea, Rooibos, Chamomile, Green, Dandelion, and Milk Thistle.

So, go and put the kettle on and make yourself a lovely cuppa !!
