Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times a day? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recognizes that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Paramus healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables like
we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one!
Life distracts our best intentions!
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is just letting you in on this gentle research-based
reminder of the help eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Paramus 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! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows many Paramus chiropractic
patients who will love to read 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 ate 7 servings or more a day) reduces
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 as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more positive results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of
osteoporosis, too. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees many Paramus chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt,
treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, the higher the BMD and lower the
osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not enjoy vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely helpful
in this concern 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 because
one article states that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting
their “play” fruits and veggies! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center would love you to share your stories if you try this!
