How coffee helps prevent bone loss

Bone is a living structure within the body. It is constantly being broken down and rebuilt. But…

…while bone mass increases up to the age of 30…

…by the age of 40, many men start losing bone mass.

In some men, the loss of bone mass with age is accelerated.

And, eventually, bones can become weak and brittle.

This is called osteoporosis.

For people with osteoporosis, even minor falls can cause bone fractures that can become serious problems.

Recently, scientists looked at the relationship between coffee and osteoporosis.

They found that men who drink lots of coffee have stronger bones as they age.

These scientists did their research at the Li-Shin (Landseed) Hospital, Taoyuan, Taiwan. BMC Public Health Journal published the results.

Some researchers have found relationships between bone mineral density and coffee consumption.

But this area of investigation had not been properly researched and the results were unclear.

“Studies investigating the association between coffee consumption and osteoporosis or bone mineral density have had inconsistent results.”

In this study, the researchers followed thousands of people over a period of eight years.

They used questionnaires to find out how much coffee the participants consumed.

“In 2006, 6,152 participants completed a questionnaire on coffee drinking and other lifestyle factors.”

The study also took measurements of bone mineral density.

They assessed bone health by T-score – a rating system based on the results of high-tech bone scans.

“T-scores were derived from the osteo-sono assessment index which is a surrogate of bone mineral density.”

They compared these assessments of osteoporosis risk against the participants’ coffee consumption.

The T-score system used in this study can be a little confusing:

  • 0 to -1 is a sign of good bone health
  • Below -1 indicates loss of bone mass leading to osteoporosis

The lower the T-score, the weaker the bones.

And they found an association between coffee drinking and stronger bones.

“Medium and high coffee drinking were associated with higher T-scores.”

They only found real benefits in people drinking high amounts of coffee.

“Significant results were observed only among high drinkers.”

The researchers took into account coffee intake at the first and second assessment to get an average score.

“Coffee drinking was categorized as ‘no, medium, and high’ based on the number of cups that were consumed per week in both 2006 and 2014.”

High coffee intake seems to be around 4 cups per day on average – or more.

This amount of coffee is similar to that seen to have maximum effect in studies on longevity and dementia.

The study participants included slightly more women than men.

When the researchers broke down the results by sex, they found that the effect was most prominent in men.

“Significant results were prominent only among high male drinkers – and the test for trend was significant.”

In women, the researchers only found benefits for premenopausal women.

“Significant results were found only among premenopausal women.”

Drinking high amounts of coffee can protect bone mineral density in men and premenopausal women.

“Coffee drinking was significantly associated with higher T-scores hence, a lower risk of osteoporosis in men and premenopausal women.”

Osteoporosis is a huge cause of illness and disability, especially in older people.

“Osteoporotic fractures are the major source of disability in many parts of the world and huge medical costs are incurred in their management.”

We can now add coffee to a short list of lifestyle and diet factors that can have significant effects on osteoporosis risk.

Other factors:

  • Avoiding alcohol
  • Exercise (because the body tends to retain more bone with exercise)
  • Getting adequate calcium
  • Getting adequate vitamin D and vitamin K2

You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing any health-related problems.
