Pflugerville 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? Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages this daily eating habit! And Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Pflugerville healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Pflugerville Wellness Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Not likely. But you are not alone! Life interrupts our best intentions! Pflugerville Wellness Center is just sharing this gentle research-based reminder of the benefit eating fruits and vegetables presents to Pflugerville 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! Pflugerville Wellness Center knows many Pflugerville chiropractic patients who will love to read 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 (particularly 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, too. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Pflugerville Wellness Center sees many Pflugerville chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something to halt, 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 love vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)

HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES

If you are doubtful about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because one article points out that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works for preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Pflugerville Wellness Center would love you to share your stories if you try this!
