In addition to Milk, Drink It Bones So Strong

Enjoy the morning with a cup of tea can be more helpful as the habit of drinking milk. Why is that? Recent research shows that tea drinkers have stronger bones and less risk of natural fractures.

Reporting from Dailymail, Tuesday (09/02/2016), three cups of tea a day was found to reduce the risk of fractures by up to 30 percent. Australian researchers say the effect of tea is very likely to be the main dietary prevention of bone fractures.

The International Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that more than 200 million people worldwide have osteoporosis. At least 40 percent of women and 30 percent of men will suffer a fracture during their lifetime.

Researchers from Flinders University, South Australia, tracked the health of nearly 1,200 women over ten years old. The volunteers, whose average age was 80 years at baseline, regularly questioned about their diet, with particular emphasis on how much tea they drank.

During the first decade, the women studied, 288 of whom suffered fractures and 129 of them broke her hip.

However, those who drank at least three cups of tea a day almost a third less likely to suffer a fracture in a decade than those who rarely or never consume tea.

These conclusions were obtained without taking into account other factors, such as smoking and exercise. These factors could also be very important in old age, in which the process of bone destruction is likely to be faster than the process of self-improvement.

It is estimated that the plant chemicals called flavonoids is the role strengthens bones by accelerating the formation of new bone cells while slowing the erosion that has occurred. Flavonoids are also found in fruits and vegetables is good for heart health facts that will affect bone health.
