FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER

Eating right just may allow you to live longer! New Roads Chiropractic Center knows many New Roads chiropractic patients who will love to read this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) reduces all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes on an important role in decreasing inflammation and reducing 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. New Roads Chiropractic Center has in its New Roads chiropractic practice many New Roads chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something to halt, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lesser the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit is more likely advantageous in this concern than vegetables. At least up your fruit consumption! (3)

HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! New Roads Chiropractic Center would love to hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
