Cross Chiropractic Center is just sharing this kind research-based notice of the help eating fruits and vegetables offers Sandy Springs 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! Cross Chiropractic Center sees many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients who will love to hear this! There is growing 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 (especially in those who consumed 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, too. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more favorable results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower occurrence of osteoporosis, too. Cross Chiropractic Center has in its Sandy Springs chiropractic practice many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do something to stop, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lesser the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not love vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit is more likely advantageous in this concern than vegetables. At least up your fruit intake! (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 is the forerunner to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It works for preschool kids who attempted tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Cross Chiropractic Center would love to hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
