knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional
benefit and have the approval of Chiropractic Care
as additions to the West Palm Beach treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher intake
of total flavonoids was associated with lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods include
strawberries as well as oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical structure
of one particular strawberry
variety, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are linked
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all desire to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also want
to keep their bone as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone
formation resulting in reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a higher
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder increased
insulin-like growth factor-1 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
information like this with our West Palm Beach female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our West Palm Beach
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study reported
that eating strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These issues often accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
West Palm Beach chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially available
whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Chiropractic Care is confident that our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
