Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several times daily? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center encourages this everyday eating habit! And Manahawkin Chiropractic Center gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Manahawkin healthy diets, and that you recognizes eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food. But do we – Manahawkin Chiropractic Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one! Life interrupts our best intentions!

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER

Eating right just may keep you living longer! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees many Manahawkin chiropractic patients who’ll 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, eating more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who ate 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 reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences more favorable results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees many Manahawkin chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can 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 tends to be more advantageous in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)

HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would love you to share your stories if you try this!
