Edit: an important note  | Journal  | Editorial

Dear readers,

This morning I sent my post for "Beautiful Bones" event of Food Blogga by dear Susan. There I mentioned about an information of tea content. On the source I used tea was said to contain calcium. However Susan informed me that she couldn't find this information, and asked if there is a source pointing this information. She was very right to question this information, because this is a very important issue.

I searched for the information again, and sent her an e-mail about Calcium & Tea issue. Here is the e-mail I sent to her to share the information I reached with you all.

Hi Susan,

I understand you. It is an important subject.
Some sources says tea contains calcium, and some does not mention it.

I had read that calcium information on Octavia Teas website.

(http://octaviatea.com/health.htm)

(And the information I used in the post was from the “What makes tea so healthy?” title on that text.)

I searched again after you warned and found out that tea contains manganese ( which is also good for bones), and potassium.

http://www.teatalk.com/health/minerals.htm

And some other minerals (also can contain the minerals of the soil it grows on). Tea also contains flavonoids, and flourid which are good for teeth.

Also Mighty Leaf informs that researchs indicate that tea flavonoids may strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis.

Also there they give this information:

The Nutritional Value of Tea
In addition to valuable antioxidant properties and enhancing overall fluid intake, tea contains many vitamins, minerals and amino acids that include the following:

▪ Vitamins: C, K, B12, B6 and E

▪ Minerals: Trace amounts of potassium, manganese, magnesium, calcium ; Tea provides 70% of our daily fluoride intake

▪ Amino Acids: Tea is provides a strong source of amino acids including L-theanine.

Here is the link for this information:

http://www.mightyleaf.com/teaculture/tea-culture-health-benefits.aspx

Also Adagio Teas inform about that tea is good for bones. But not calling for calcium directly.

So it is a common information that tea is good for bones (when drank in right amounts) and especially for teeth.

However calcium content is not mentioned at every sources.

Maybe it is better not to use this post for your event, as you are announcing only ‘calcium-rich’ foods.

I will add this information to my post.

Best wishes,
Banu
