Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several times a day? Moriarty Chiropractic urges this everyday eating habit! And Moriarty Chiropractic gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Nashua healthy diets, and that you gets eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Moriarty Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one! Life interrupts our best intentions! Moriarty Chiropractic is just sharing this gentle research-based reminder of the help eating fruits and vegetables presents to Nashua 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 allow you to live longer! Moriarty Chiropractic sees many Nashua chiropractic patients who will love to hear this! There is increasing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in lowering inflammation and reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)
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. Moriarty Chiropractic sees many Nashua 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 consumed, 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 regard than vegetables. At least up your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food as one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works for preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Moriarty Chiropractic would love you to share your stories if you try this!
