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!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
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)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
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)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
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!
