Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Numerous
times daily? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider urges this daily
eating habit! And The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you sees
vegetables and fruit should be main
parts of your Ottawa healthy diets, and that you recognizes
eating fruits and vegetables is better than eating fast food.
But do we – The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one!
Life interrupts our best plans!
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is just sharing this kind research-based
reminder of the benefit eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Ottawa 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 allow you to live
longer! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider sees many Ottawa chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is growing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption has an
effect on all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
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 favorable outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider sees many Ottawa chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one study, 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 lucky! Fruit
tends to be more beneficial
in this concern than vegetables. At least up
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food because
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! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider would love you to share your stories if you try this!
