Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Chiropractic Associates encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Chiropractic Associates gets that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Preston healthy diets, and that you knows
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – Chiropractic Associates included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not alone!
Life distracts our best plans!
Chiropractic Associates is just letting you in on this kind research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables offers Preston chiropractic
folks and their friends and family members!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may keep you living
longer! Chiropractic Associates knows many Preston chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly
in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in lowering inflammation and
lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. Chiropractic Associates has in its Preston
chiropractic practice many Preston chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, the higher the BMD and lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely beneficial
in this regard than vegetables. At least up
your fruit intake! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because
one article states that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Chiropractic Associates would love you to share your stories if you try this!
