Peoria Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous times daily? Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture urges this everyday eating habit! And Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture sees that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Peoria healthy diets, and that you recognizes eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food. But do we – Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one! Life distracts our best intentions! Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is just sharing this kind research-based reminder of the help eating fruits and vegetables extends to Peoria 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! Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture knows many Peoria chiropractic patients who will love to read this! There is growing 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 consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in lowering inflammation and decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)

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. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture sees many Peoria 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 be lovers of vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this regard than vegetables. At least up your fruit consumption! (3)

HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES

If you are doubtful about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food because one article states 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! Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
