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!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
Eating right just may keep you living
longer! Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks chiropractic
patients who will love to read 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,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more positive 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)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
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!
