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 sharing this kind research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Baton Rouge 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! 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,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
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)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
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!
