Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional value and have the approval of Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
as extras in the Manchester treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” furthers our
aim to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher intake
of total flavonoids was linked to lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods include
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical structure
of one particular type of strawberry, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the creation of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all want to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone
formation which results in less bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder raised
insulin-like growth factor-1 (an important hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
information like this with our Manchester female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Manchester
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study reported
that eating strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These conditions often come with age, so we want to be sensible as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Manchester chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially accessible
whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study offered research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries bets our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
