Black tea and calcium. Odd combination! Usually honey and tea,
sugar and tea, cream and tea…but calcium and tea? Spinal Care Clinic likes this
new combination for the potential protection of bone. (Chiropractors and their osteoporotic patients everywhere can appreciate that!) Plus, black tea is
helpful for many other conditions.
A new article in the Journal of Osteoporosis just came across the desk here at Spinal Care Clinic. It touts the benefit of black tea
extract as an everyday, simple treatment for osteoporosis. The black tea
extract seems a capable adjunct therapy for
calcium supplements in the early stage of menopausal bone changes. (1) So have some tea with a dollop of your
favorite taste enhancer. It’s a good thing for you!
Black tea has been relished for
years. Its positive potential uses include mental alertness improvement and
learning, memory and information processing. Headache treatment, low blood
pressure, heart disease and certain cancers (breast, ovarian, lunch, colon,
stomach) prevention and even for kidney stone and tooth decay prevention are
among the conditions people turn to black tea for more than its taste! (2)
Black teas’ 2% to 4% caffeine and antioxidant
content make it a healthy drink that your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor would
approve for most patients. We look forward to seeing you at your next
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic appointment and hearing about your preferred black
tea combination...and treating any back pain or neck pain you may have! Contact Spinal Care Clinic now.
