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!
