Richmond Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous times daily? Johnson Chiropractic urges this daily eating habit! And Johnson Chiropractic gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Richmond healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Johnson Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone! Life interrupts our best intentions! Johnson Chiropractic is just sharing this kind research-based notice of the help eating fruits and vegetables presents to Richmond 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 keep you living longer! Johnson Chiropractic knows many Richmond chiropractic patients who will 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, consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who had 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in reducing inflammation and lowering 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 occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Johnson Chiropractic sees many Richmond chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt, 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 be lovers of vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit tends to be more beneficial in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit intake! (3)

HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES

If you are doubtful about 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 leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works for preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Johnson Chiropractic would love to hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
