Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are also packed with nutritional value and have the endorsement of Wilson Family Chiropractic
as extras in the Millville treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” furthers our
aim to be as healthy as possible.
In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers reported that the higher consumption
of total flavonoids was associated with lower
odds of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical make-up
of one particular strawberry
variety, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the creation of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all want to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be 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 reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a higher
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder increased
insulin-like growth factor-1 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
research like this with our Millville female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Millville
chiropractic patients. We definitely 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 accompany
aging, so we want to be wise as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Millville chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially accessible
whiteners that have hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study offered research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Wilson Family Chiropractic bets our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
