Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional
benefit and have the endorsement of Pflugerville Wellness Center
as extras in the Pflugerville treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that the higher consumption
of total flavonoids was linked to lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries as well as oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical make-up
of one particular strawberry
variety, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all desire to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation which results in less bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a greater
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 present
information like this with our Pflugerville female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Pflugerville
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 conditions often accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Pflugerville chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially available
whiteners that have hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Pflugerville Wellness Center knows our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
