Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times daily? Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic urges this everyday
eating habit! And Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you recognizes
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Eugene healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one!
Life interrupts our best plans!
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables offers Eugene 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! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees many Eugene chiropractic
patients who’ll love to hear this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly
in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on an important role in decreasing inflammation and
reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more favorable results of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees many Eugene 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 lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
tends to be more beneficial
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 allow yourself to play with your food because
one article points out that sensory play is the
forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
