Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are also packed with nutrition and have the approval of Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
as additions to the Manahawkin treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher consumption
of total flavonoids was linked to lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries as well as 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, most of us want to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also want
to keep their bone as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone
formation which results 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 raised
insulin-like growth factor-1 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
information like this with our Manahawkin female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Manahawkin
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study presented the finding
that eating strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These conditions often come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Manahawkin chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: 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)
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center bets our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
