Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional value and have the endorsement of Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
as additions to the Auburn treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” furthers our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers reported that a higher intake
of total flavonoids was associated with lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries as well as oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical make-up
of one particular strawberry
variety, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are linked
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, most of us want to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone
formation resulting in reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder raised
insulin-like growth factor-1 (an important hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We share
information like this with our Auburn female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Auburn
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study reported
that consuming strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These conditions often accompany
aging, so we want to be wise as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Auburn chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially available
whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
