times a day? Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages this daily
eating habit! And Tarrytown Chiropractic recognizes that you know

eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Tarrytown Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables like

Life interrupts our best plans!
Tarrytown Chiropractic is just sharing this kind research-based
reminder of the advantage eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Tarrytown 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! Tarrytown Chiropractic sees many Tarrytown chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is developing
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 (particularly
in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) decreases
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes
on an important role in decreasing inflammation and
decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations as well. (2)
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see
more favorable results of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of
osteoporosis, too. Tarrytown Chiropractic sees many Tarrytown chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do something to halt,
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 enjoy vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit
is more likely helpful
in this regard than vegetables. At least up
your fruit intake! (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 let yourself play with your food as
one article points out 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! Tarrytown Chiropractic would love you to share your stories if you try this!
