Manahawkin Mediterranean Diet Lowers Risk Of Cognitive Decline, Osteoporosis & Fracture Risk

Thoughts of the Mediterranean bring postcard-worthy images of gorgeous blue ocean waters, white sane beaches, cloudless blue skies…and food? Yes, food! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center shares nutrition tips, and the Mediterranean diet is bantered around the world of nutrition for its many health benefits as well it should in our chiropractic world, too. Fish, fruits, and veggies are good for all of us in this Manahawkin chiropractic family!


With the expanding recognition that diet offers a beneficial role in health and prevention of disease issues like osteoporosis, bone loss, etc., guidelines are being created. A new paper with suggestions for guidelines endorsed a mediterranean-type diet with daily consumption of 2 to 3 dairy products to deliver calcium and protein adequate enough to preserve normal calcium-phosphorous balance and bone metabolism all of which are related to a reduced risk of fracture. (1) In other studies, the Mediterranean diet has been described as reducing hip fracture risk. Another new paper states that there is indication that a modified or alternative Mediterranean diet like the DASH (“Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”) diet may also reduce hip fracture risk in addition to risk of lumbar spine osteoporosis in women. (2) A study just released this past month showed that older adults who adhered the Meditterranean Diet closely had lower chances of developing cognitive decline. (3) Better BMD, lower osteoporosis odds, lower probability of cognitive decline and hip fracture may be inspiring to try and follow the Mediterranean diet, yes? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center finds these new studies interesting enough to share with our Manahawkin chiropractic patients and their families.


Good stuff! Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats (olive oil, nuts, seeds), yogurt, seafood/fish, a little red wine, and lots of water, un-sugared sparkling water, juices. It suggests avoiding sugars, refined grains, ultra-processed foods, etc. (4) These are all possible if not simple!
