Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Vancouver Spine Care Centre gets that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Vancouver healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Vancouver Spine Care Centre included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one!
Life distracts our best intentions!
Vancouver Spine Care Centre is just letting you in on this kind research-based
notice of the help eating fruits
and vegetables presents to Vancouver 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! Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows many Vancouver chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is increasing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in lowering inflammation and
decreasing 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 eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees many Vancouver chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables
consumed, the higher the BMD and lower 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 tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to 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! Vancouver Spine Care Centre would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
