Green tea and tai chi strengthen bones after menopause

The East could hold the key to easing women through the menopause

The East could hold the key to easing women through the menopause. Green tea and the slow-motion exercise of tai chi can help protect the bones and reduce inflammation, which can lead to other diseases.
Drinking up to six cups of green tea every day and doing tai chi exercises three times a week is the recipe for a long and healthy life after the menopause, says Dr Leslie Shen, a professor at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
She made the discovery in a research study that involved 171 postmenopausal women who already had weak bones but had not yet developed osteoporosis. In the six-month study, some had placebo treatment - they had 'fake' green tea and didn't do tai chi - others had green tea and not tai chi, but it was only those that drank the tea and did the exercises every week who reported the greatest benefits.
