Recent uses of phytoestrogen hormones
Phytoestrogen hormones have long been found to have a variety of positive effects on the human body. They are regularly used by menopausal women in order to address the hormonal balance which is depleted due to the onset of menopause. More specifically some use phytoestrogen hormones in orderto increase bone density. Such a method of treatment is specifically used for those suffering from the symptoms of osteoporosis. Such a loss of bone density as a result of this common problem in people approaching a later stage in life is felt more acutely by women experiencing the symptoms of menopause. Recent studies have found that habitual tea drinkers are more capable of maintaining strong bones simply by the vast amount of tea they consume.
Researchers have found that the benefit of tea drinking in this regard stems from the fact that bone mineral density or BMD is directly positively impacted by chemical compounds such as fluride, caffeine, phytoestrogen and some which are found in tea extracts. Such findings mean that a study of people who drink a large quantity of tea is one where the results could prove useful in treating BMD. Because tea extracts carry with them a vast concentrations of chemicals including phytoestrogen, flurides and flavonoids which have been known to have a detrimental effect on bone mineral density. A large test group of people over the age of 30 were sampled in order to determine what effect phytoestrogen hormones in tea might have on the human body.
Studies in this regard have been mostly inconclusive as categorization of "tea consumption" has mostly been inconsistent. In summary long term consumption of a moderate amount of tea was said to be most beneficial in regards the treat of BMD. Such a finding would deny any treatment of a high amount of tea over a short period of time in order to treat BMD, as such a method of tea consumption had less positive results. The benefits of tea and the phytoestrogen hormone elements held within its extracts were clearly proven however. The flavonoids found in tea were proven capable of improving BMD, through an increase in consumption.
In conclusion, tea extract and its 4000 chemical compounds that affect the human body in a variety of different ways have been proven to have positive effects in regards the bone loss in human beings. Studies however found that as a quick fix treatment in this regard phytoestrogen hormones found in such tea extracts may not yield the encouraging positive results necessary for such a treatment to be considered applicable to those suffering from a loss of bone density.
