FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live
longer! Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is growing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
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 decreasing inflammation and
reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive results of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one study, 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 lucky! Fruit
tends to be more helpful
in this concern 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 allow yourself to 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! Spine & Sports Rehab Center would love you to share your stories if you try this!
