Black tea and calcium. What a strange combination! More common is honey and tea, sugar and tea, cream and tea…but calcium and tea? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc admires this new mixture for the potential protection of bone. (Chiropractors and their osteoporotic patients all over can appreciate that!) Plus, black tea is advantageous for many other conditions.

A new article in the Journal of Osteoporosis just came across the desk here at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. It touts the benefit of black tea extract as an everyday, simple treatment for osteoporosis. The black tea extract seems a likely additional therapy for calcium supplements in the early stage of menopausal bone changes. (1) So sip some tea with a bit of your favorite taste enhancer. It’s a good thing for you!

Black tea has been enjoyed 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!

Black teas’ 2% to 4% caffeine and antioxidant content make it a healthy drink that your Fort Wayne chiropractor would recommend for most patients. We look forward to seeing you at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic appointment and hearing about your preferred black tea combination...and treating any back pain or neck pain you may have!
