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!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
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)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more favorable outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of
osteoporosis, too. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees 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)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
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!
