knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional value and have the endorsement of Spine & Sports Rehab Center
as extras in the Baton Rouge treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our
aim to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that the higher intake
of total flavonoids was associated with lower
odds of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical make-up
of one particular type of strawberry, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the creation of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all desire to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation resulting 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 increased
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 Baton Rouge female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Baton Rouge
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study presented the finding
that consuming strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These issues often accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Baton Rouge chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially available
whiteners that have hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Spine & Sports Rehab Center bets our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
