Caffeine and Osteoporosis
Caffeine and Osteoporosis Prevention
For most people moderate amounts of caffeine are not a concern with respect to bone loss. Caffeine can reduce the amount of calcium absorbed from your diet, but the effect is very small. Just a small amount of milk can offset the amount of calcium lost by drinking coffee or other caffeinated drinks. This effect, however, is of greater concern for postmenopausal women. Drinking more than 18 ounces of coffee on a daily basis can increase spinal bone loss in postmenopausal women.
