Largo 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? Hollstrom & Associates Inc urges this daily eating habit! And Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Largo healthy diets, and that you recognizes eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food. But do we – Hollstrom & Associates Inc included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Not likely. But you are not the only one! Life interrupts our best intentions! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is just letting you in on this gentle research-based notice of the good eating fruits and vegetables extends to Largo chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees many Largo chiropractic patients who’ll love to read this! There is increasing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in decreasing 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 incidence of osteoporosis, too. Hollstrom & Associates Inc has in its Largo chiropractic practice many Largo chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something to halt, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lower the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not be lovers of vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit tends to be more helpful in this respect than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)


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 is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works for preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Hollstrom & Associates Inc would love you to share your stories if you try this!
