Tea May Be Good For Your Bones

Drinking tea regularly may be good for your bones. Researchers in Perth Australia studied over 200 women aged 70 to 85 and found that those who drank tea had higher bone density at their hips and less bone loss than women who didn't drink tea. Although the study did not find a link between the cups of tea consumed per day and bone mineral density, it found the bone density at two places at the hip was higher in tea drinkers than in non-tea drinkers. Tea drinkers also had less loss of bone density over a four-year period compared to the women who did not drink tea.
