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
reminder 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 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 had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
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!
