Drink White or Green Tea for Bone Health

Posted Jul 10 2008 4:03pm
More good news for tea drinkers. A recent study has found that drinking tea--especially white or green--is good for the bones.

The research, which was published in theJournal of American College of Nutrition, found that regular tea drinkers had higher bone density in their hips than non-tea drinkers.

Additionally, tea drinkers lost less bone-mineral density than nondrinkers.

Researchers believe that the potent antioxidants, called catechin polyphenols, found in tea are responsible for the bone-boosting benefits.

White tea has the highest catechin concentration, followed by green tea. Black tea has the least amount.
