Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages this daily
eating habit! And Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Fernandina Beach healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Amelia Chiropractic Clinic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one!
Life interrupts our best intentions!
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is just sharing this kind research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables offers Fernandina Beach 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! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees many Fernandina Beach chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is developing
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 (particularly
in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in reducing inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees many Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
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 be
lovers of 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 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 works
for preschool kids who attempted tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
