A groundbreaking study published in Clinical Nutrition revealed that women who increase their intake of protein and caffeinated drinks might have a lower risk of hip fractures.
After analyzing data from more than 24,000 women, out of which over 800 had hip fractures, scientists found that those who drank more than one cup of tea or coffee daily had about 4% lower incidence of hip fractures.
In addition, the women who ate about 25 grams of proteins per day had 14% reduced rate of hip fractures.
Hip fractures are among the most concerning accidents, typically in women, as they are thrice more prone to broken hips than males. That’s because as women age and begin experiencing perimenopause symptoms, they undergo certain hormonal changes leading to low estrogen levels.
As a result, women experience arthritis or osteoporosis – a condition that decreases bone density, making the skeletal structure fragile.
