Previous studies have shown that people who consume the highest levels of green tea tend to have lower risks of several chronic degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
She collected blood and urine samples, and assessed the women`s muscle strength. The results showed consuming the equivalent of four to six cups of steeped green tea daily and doing tai chi enhanced bone health within three months. A similar effect was found for muscle strength at the 6-month time point. Perhaps most remarkable, however, was the substantial effect that both GTP and tai chi had on biological markers of oxidative stress, the main precursor to inflammation. Participants taking tai chi classes also reported significant beneficial effects in quality of life in terms of improving their emotional and mental health. Shen concluded that there is a `favourable effect of modest green tea consumption on bone remodeling in this pre-osteoporotic population." The results were presented as a poster at the Experimental Biology meetings on April 10, 2011. ANI
