Watertown Chiropractor Encourages Eating Fruits and Veggies to Reduce Inflammation, Osteoporosis Risk, and All-Cause Mortality

Do you munch on vegetables and fruits? Daily? Several times daily? Watertown Wellness Center encourages this everyday eating habit! And Watertown Wellness Center gets that you know fruits and vegetables are healthy foods, that you gets vegetables and fruit should be staples of your Watertown healthy diets, and that you gets eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food. But do we – Watertown Wellness Center included! - eat fruits and vegetables like we should? Unlikely. But you are not the only one! Life distracts our best plans! Watertown Wellness Center is just letting you in on this gentle research-based notice of the benefit eating fruits and vegetables presents to Watertown chiropractic folks and their friends and family members!


Eating right just may keep you living longer! Watertown Wellness Center sees many Watertown chiropractic patients who will love to hear this! There is increasing evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, consuming more fruits and vegetables (especially in those who ate 7 servings or more a day) reduces all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in decreasing inflammation and decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)


Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of osteoporosis, too. Watertown Wellness Center sees many Watertown chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to stop, treat and prevent it. In one report, 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 be lovers of vegetables, you’re in luck! Fruit tends to be more beneficial in this regard than vegetables. At least increase your fruit consumption! (3)


If you are tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being a kid again. Take a chance, and let yourself play with your food because one article points out that sensory play leads to tasting fruits and vegetables you play with! (4) It is successful with preschool kids who tried tasting their “play” fruits and veggies! Watertown Wellness Center would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
