Chicago Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

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!
