Baton Rouge Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several times daily? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages this daily eating habit! And Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you recognizes vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Baton Rouge healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one! Life interrupts our best intentions! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is just letting you in on this kind research-based reminder of the help eating fruits and vegetables extends to Baton Rouge chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients who will love to hear this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who had 7 servings or more a day) decreases 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)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, 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 fortunate! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)


If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again. Take a chance, and allow yourself to 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! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation would love to hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
