Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times daily? Wilson Family Chiropractic urges this daily
eating habit! And Wilson Family Chiropractic knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Millville healthy diets, and that you sees
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Wilson Family Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone!
Life interrupts our best plans!
Wilson Family Chiropractic is just letting you in on this kind research-based
reminder of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Millville 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 allow you to live
longer! Wilson Family Chiropractic knows many Millville chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is increasing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming 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 takes
on an important role in lowering inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more favorable outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Wilson Family Chiropractic has in its Millville
chiropractic practice many Millville chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something 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 be
lovers of vegetables, you’re in luck! 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 undecided about 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 leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works
for preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Wilson Family Chiropractic would love you to share your stories if you try this!
