Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times a day? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR urges this daily
eating habit! And The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Colorado Springs healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not alone!
Life distracts our best intentions!
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
notice of the good eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Colorado Springs 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! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows many Colorado Springs chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is growing
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 ate 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
reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees many Colorado Springs chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one report, 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 enjoy vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely 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 hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because
one article states 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! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
