FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may allow you to live longer! Young Chiropractic sees many Easley chiropractic patients who’ll love to hear this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in decreasing inflammation and decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences more positive results of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Young Chiropractic sees many Easley chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, treat and prevent it. In one study, 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 be lovers of vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit is more likely beneficial in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit intake! (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 let yourself play with your food as one article points out that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Young Chiropractic would love to hear your stories if you try this!
