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,
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!
