La Grande 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 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!


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)


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)


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!
