Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times daily? Minster Chiropractic Center encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Minster Chiropractic Center knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Minster healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Minster Chiropractic Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone!
Life interrupts our best plans!
Minster Chiropractic Center is just letting you in on this kind research-based
notice of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Minster 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! 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,
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!
