Morning Secret to Stronger Bones
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
No one wants to spend their retirement relying on a cane or worried that the slightest tumble will result in a painful fracture.
So you exercise and take your vitamins, all in hopes of keeping your bones strong.
But as it turns out, there’s one more thing you should be doing if you want to keep your bones steel-strong well into your golden years — drinking tea.
You see, according to some brand-new research out of Australia, just a few cups of black tea can drastically reduce your chances of suffering from fractures.
In a recent study, Aussie scientists analyzed the dietary habits and medical records of over 1,100 women aged around 75 years. They were looking for a link between tea consumption and bone fractures.
And after crunching the numbers, the researchers found something extraordinary…
Women who drank three or more cups of black tea daily lowered their risk of suffering from an osteoporotic fracture by 34 percent.
Even better, the same amount of tea decreased the women’s chances of developing a hip fracture by a whopping 42 percent!
This means by simply drinking just a few cups of this delicious tea every day, you can cut your risk of hip fracture almost in half!
Experts believe black tea is able to shield your bones so well because of its high flavonoid content. These special antioxidants not only help protect your bones, but also help lower disease-causing inflammation and hunt down dangerous free radicals.
Black tea varieties include some favorites like Earl Grey, Darjeeling and Assam. Just be sure to enjoy at least three cups a day.
You can pick up any of these or other black teas at your local grocer or through internet retailers like Harney & Sons.
