Tea everywhere is indeed a popular drink, only surpassed by water as the liquid most widely drunk man. Aside from being a thirst-quenching, the researchers concluded that drinking three cups of tea per day will strengthen bones.
Magical elements called flavonoids in black tea and can combat osteoporosis. Moreover, as mentioned in the research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, tea is also able to reduce the risk of fractures and other bone diseases such as keroposan bone and bone fragility.
Osteoporosis has influenced the lives of many people and about 3 million people are now looking for an effective treatment for this disease. Astonishing breakthrough it was found when using the tea experts as therapies that help make bones stronger.
Research conducted at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Royal Perth Hospital and Flinders University in Australia says that tea may improve bone density. In conducting this study, as many as 1,200 people were observed for about ten years. Women are monitored and tested if they experience a fracture due to osteoporosis. The result was 288 women suffered broken bones and fractured pelvis.
It turns out women who drank three or more cups of tea per day experienced a 30 percent less incidence of fractures than those who drank only one glass per day.
Fractures that commonly occur in women because they are at higher risk of developing osteoporosis. However, drinking tea every day can help women to reduce the risk of up to nine percent.
According to Dr. Jonathan Hodgson of the University of Western Australia, as reported by Express, “There is increasing interest in the role of food in osteoporosis and prevention of fractures. There is evidence that a diet rich in flavonoids – such as fruits, vegetables and tea – could lead to stronger bones and prevent fractures. “
