FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live
longer! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows many West Des Moines chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on 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 eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees many West Des Moines chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something 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 be
lovers of vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit
tends to be more advantageous
in this regard than vegetables. At least up
your fruit intake! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as
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 attempted tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
