Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times daily? New Roads Chiropractic Center urges this everyday
eating habit! And New Roads Chiropractic Center sees that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you recognizes
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your New Roads healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – New Roads Chiropractic Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not alone!
Life interrupts our best plans!
New Roads Chiropractic Center is just sharing this kind research-based
reminder of the advantage eating fruits
and vegetables offers New Roads 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! 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 sees 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
eaten, 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
If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
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!
