Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times a day? Chiropractic Care encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Chiropractic Care gets that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you gets
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Chicago healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Chiropractic Care included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one!
Life distracts our best plans!
Chiropractic Care is just sharing this gentle research-based
notice of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables presents to Chicago 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 Care sees many Chicago chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is increasing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on 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 takes
on an important role in reducing inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more favorable outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Chiropractic Care has in its Chicago
chiropractic practice many Chicago chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop,
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 be
lovers of vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
tends to be more beneficial
in this respect than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food because
one article points out that sensory play is the
forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Chiropractic Care would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
