Do you eat your vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several
times daily? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages this daily
eating habit! And Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC gets that you know
fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you knows
vegetables and fruit should be staples of your La Grande healthy diets, and that you sees
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC included! - eat fruits and vegetables as
we should? Not likely. But you are not alone!
Life interrupts our best plans!
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is just sharing this gentle research-based
notice of the advantage eating fruits
and vegetables extends to La Grande 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! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows many La Grande chiropractic
patients who’ll love to read this! There is developing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption influences all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
consuming more fruits and vegetables (particularly
in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) decreases
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 experiences
more favorable outcomes of eating
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC has in its La Grande
chiropractic practice many La Grande chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to stop,
treat and prevent it. In one report, the more fruits and vegetables
eaten, 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 in luck! Fruit
tends to be more helpful
in this concern than vegetables. At least increase
your fruit consumption! (3)
HOW TO UP YOUR INTAKE OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
If you are undecided about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food as
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! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC would love to
hear your stories if you take a stab at this!
