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

Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous times daily? Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages this everyday eating habit! And Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Carrolltown healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Not likely. But you are not alone! Life distracts our best plans! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is just letting you in on this gentle research-based reminder of the benefit eating fruits and vegetables presents to Carrolltown chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees many Carrolltown chiropractic patients who will love to read this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in reducing inflammation and lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has in its Carrolltown chiropractic practice many Carrolltown chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something 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 enjoy vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit tends to be more valuable in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)


If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again. Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because one article points out that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
