Spinal Care Clinic is just sharing this kind research-based
notice of the advantage eating fruits

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may keep you living
longer! Spinal Care Clinic sees many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is growing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in decreasing inflammation and
lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more favorable outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Spinal Care Clinic sees many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, the higher the BMD and lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely valuable
in this regard than vegetables. At least up
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food because
one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works
for preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Spinal Care Clinic would love to
hear your stories if you try this!
