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,
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!
