FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live
longer! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees many Ashburn chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is increasing
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 (particularly
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on an important role in reducing inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more positive results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn has in its Ashburn
chiropractic practice many Ashburn chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables
consumed, the higher the BMD and lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely valuable
in this respect than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food because
one article states 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! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
