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.[26] 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.[27]
