Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages this daily
eating habit! And Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you recognizes
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Auburn healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one!
Life distracts our best plans!
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
reminder of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables offers Auburn 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! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees many Auburn chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is increasing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences 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 lowering inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more positive results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees many Auburn chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt,
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 lucky! 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 doubtful
about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and let yourself 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 works
for preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
