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!
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MAY KEEP
DEATH AT BAY LONGER
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)
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 incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees 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)
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 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 take a stab at this!
