Brooks 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 a day? Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages this daily eating habit! And Soft Health and Healing Clinic gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you recognizes vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Brooks healthy diets, and that you recognizes eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food. But do we – Soft Health and Healing Clinic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Not likely. But you are not alone! Life interrupts our best plans! Soft Health and Healing Clinic is just letting you in on this gentle research-based notice of the benefit eating fruits and vegetables offers Brooks chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks chiropractic patients who will 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, eating more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in decreasing inflammation and lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences more favorable results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lower the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not be lovers of vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit tends to be more advantageous in this concern than vegetables. At least up your fruit consumption! (3)


If you are hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again. Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as one article states that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Soft Health and Healing Clinic would love you to share your stories if you try this!
