Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutrition and have the endorsement of Satterwhite Chiropractic
as additions to the Oxford treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher consumption
of total flavonoids was linked to lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical structure
of one particular strawberry type, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the creation of certain factors that are linked
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, most of us desire to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also want
to keep their bone as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation resulting in decreased bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as a higher
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder increased
insulin-like growth factor-1 (an important hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We share
research like this with our Oxford female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Oxford
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A recent 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 issues often come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Oxford chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially accessible
whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study offered research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Satterwhite Chiropractic is confident that our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
