Sitka Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous times daily? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka urges this daily eating habit! And Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Sitka healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Not likely. But you are not alone! Life distracts our best plans! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is just letting you in on this gentle research-based notice of the advantage eating fruits and vegetables presents to Sitka chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows many Sitka chiropractic patients who will love to read this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences 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 reducing inflammation and decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more favorable results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees many Sitka chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, 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 love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this concern than vegetables. At least up your fruit intake! (3)


If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as 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! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka would love you to share your stories if you try this!
