Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Spengel Chiropractic encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Spengel Chiropractic knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you gets
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your McHenry healthy diets, and that you sees
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Spengel Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one!
Life distracts our best plans!
Spengel Chiropractic is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the advantage eating fruits
and vegetables offers McHenry 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! Spengel Chiropractic knows many McHenry chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is growing
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 (especially
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on an important role in lowering inflammation and
reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more positive outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Spengel Chiropractic sees many McHenry 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 valuable
in this respect than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit intake! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because
one article states that sensory play is the
forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Spengel Chiropractic would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
