Toronto Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous times daily? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages this daily eating habit! And Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Toronto healthy diets, and that you sees eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Unlikely. But you are not alone! Life interrupts our best plans! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is just letting you in on this gentle research-based notice of the help eating fruits and vegetables extends to Toronto 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! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows many Toronto chiropractic patients who will love to hear this! There is increasing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who had 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 decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive results of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has in its Toronto chiropractic practice many Toronto 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 enjoy vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit is more likely 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 hesitant in eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. 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! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre would love to hear your stories if you try this!
