Life distracts our best plans!
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables extends to St. Francisville 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 allow you to live
longer! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees many St. Francisville chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (particularly
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in reducing inflammation and
reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more favorable outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of
osteoporosis, too. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees many St. Francisville chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables
consumed, the higher the BMD and lesser the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit
tends to be more valuable
in this concern than vegetables. At least up
your fruit intake! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to 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 works
for preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville would love you to share your stories if you try this!
