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!
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the good eating fruits
and vegetables presents to Manahawkin 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! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees many Manahawkin chiropractic
patients who’ll love to hear 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,
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 has in its Manahawkin
chiropractic practice 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
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 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!
