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

Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several times a day? Palmer Chiropractic Center urges this daily eating habit! And Palmer Chiropractic Center gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows vegetables and fruit should be main parts of your Lynchburg healthy diets, and that you gets eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Palmer Chiropractic Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables as we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one! Life interrupts our best plans! Palmer Chiropractic Center is just sharing this gentle research-based reminder of the good eating fruits and vegetables extends to Lynchburg chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may allow you to live longer! Palmer Chiropractic Center sees many Lynchburg chiropractic patients who’ll love to read this! There is growing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who had 7 servings or more a day) decreases all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables has an important role in reducing inflammation and lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive results of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Palmer Chiropractic Center sees many Lynchburg chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, 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 in luck! Fruit is more likely advantageous in this regard than vegetables. At least up your fruit consumption! (3)


If you are doubtful about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like. Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because one article states that sensory play is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Palmer Chiropractic Center would love to hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
