FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live
longer! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows many Manchester chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is developing
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 (especially
in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on 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 experiences
more positive results of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries sees many Manchester chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one report, 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 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 tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as
one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works
for preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
