FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP DEATH AT BAY LONGER

Eating right just may allow you to live longer! Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many Oxford chiropractic patients who’ll love to hear this! There is developing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an effect on 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) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes on an important role in lowering inflammation and lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Satterwhite Chiropractic has in its Oxford chiropractic practice many Oxford chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something to stop, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables eaten, the higher the BMD and lesser the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not be lovers of vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit tends to be more advantageous in this concern than vegetables. At least up 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 let yourself play with your food as 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 tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Satterwhite Chiropractic would love to hear your stories if you try this!
