Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Apple Country Chiropractic urges this everyday
eating habit! And Apple Country Chiropractic knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Williamson healthy diets, and that you knows
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – Apple Country Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone!
Life distracts our best plans!
Apple Country Chiropractic is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
notice of the good eating fruits
and vegetables offers Williamson 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! Apple Country Chiropractic knows many Williamson chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is increasing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in lowering inflammation and
reducing 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. Apple Country Chiropractic has in its Williamson
chiropractic practice many Williamson 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 lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not enjoy vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit
is more likely advantageous
in this regard than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit intake! (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 as
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! Apple Country Chiropractic would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
