FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may keep you living longer! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows many Augusta chiropractic patients who’ll love to read this! There is developing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in reducing inflammation and lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic sees many Augusta chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables eaten, the higher the BMD and lower the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not enjoy vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this regard 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 kid-like. Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food as one article states that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic would love to hear your stories if you try this!
