During the course of the study, it was observed that some elements in green tea such as polyphenol and tannin compensate the effects of caffeine, hence resist the development of the disease osteoporosis.

A member of the research team, Dr. Chang Yin- fan, said that the fluoride accounts for the loss of bone mass whereas flavonoid improves bone mass in addition to other two ingredients of green tea, polyphenol and tannin.
