Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Disc Centers Of America encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Disc Centers Of America recognizes that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Buffalo, NY healthy diets, and that you sees
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Disc Centers Of America included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Not likely. But you are not alone!
Life distracts our best plans!
Disc Centers Of America is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the good eating fruits
and vegetables presents to Buffalo, NY 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! Disc Centers Of America sees many Buffalo, NY chiropractic
patients who will love to hear this! There is growing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who had 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in decreasing inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more favorable results of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Disc Centers Of America has in its Buffalo, NY
chiropractic practice many Buffalo, NY 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 love vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit
tends to be more helpful
in this regard than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are doubtful
about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again.
Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food as
one article states that sensory play is the
forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works
for preschool kids who attempted tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Disc Centers Of America would love to
hear your stories if you try this!
