FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER

Eating right just may keep you living longer! Minster Chiropractic Center knows many Minster chiropractic patients who’ll love to hear this! There is increasing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who ate 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 lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Minster Chiropractic Center sees many Minster chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lower 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 helpful in this concern 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 allow yourself to play with your food because one article states that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Minster Chiropractic Center would love you to share your stories if you try this!
