knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are also packed with nutrition and have the endorsement of Cross Chiropractic Center
as additions to the Sandy Springs treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to most of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher intake
of total flavonoids was linked to lower
odds of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods include
strawberries as well as oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical make-up
of one particular strawberry type, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are linked
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all want to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation resulting in less bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder increased
insulin-like growth factor-1 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
information like this with our Sandy Springs female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Sandy Springs
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A recent study presented the finding
that consuming strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These issues often come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Sandy Springs chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially accessible
whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Cross Chiropractic Center is confident that our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
