Green tea and menopause: does drinking one reduce the symptoms of the other? Dr. Chwan-Li Shen says, “Yes it does, especially when combined with Tai Chi. In addition to increasing bone health, this combination also reduces the inflammation that comes with menopause and middle age. Dr. Shen led a study where she combined a placebo with tai chi and green tea with no tai chi along with a controls to determine that green tea and tai chi are more effective together.ᅠ

C.S. Lewis, the famous author and Oxford academic, once proclaimed “You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.” We sip it with toast in the morning, enjoy it with sweets and biscuits in the afternoon, and relax with it at the end of the day. Tea has for generations been an integral infusion worldwide, carrying both epicurean and economic significance…

Tai Chi is a moderate form of Chinese exercise that engages mind and body in focused movements that are designed to energize and relax the body. As for the green tea and menopause connection, make sure to drink tea that gives you at least 500 mg per day of polyphenols. Dr. Shin thinks this combination works because it promotes relaxation which naturally reduces the inflammatory response that is typically involved in age-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. You don’t have to convince me. I’m enjoying a cup of green tea as I write this.ᅠ
