Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times daily? Lakeshore Chiropractic urges this everyday
eating habit! And Lakeshore Chiropractic gets that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Two Rivers healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – Lakeshore Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone!
Life interrupts our best intentions!
Lakeshore Chiropractic is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
notice of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Two Rivers 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! Lakeshore Chiropractic sees many Two Rivers chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
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 decreasing inflammation and
lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of
osteoporosis, too. Lakeshore Chiropractic has in its Two Rivers
chiropractic practice many Two Rivers chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, 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 in luck! Fruit
tends to be more valuable
in this regard than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and let yourself 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! Lakeshore Chiropractic would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
