times daily? Layden Chiropractic encourages this everyday
eating habit! And Layden Chiropractic knows that you know

parts of your Plainville healthy diets, and that you gets
eating fruits and vegetables is healthier than eating fast food.
But do we – Layden Chiropractic included! - eat fruits and vegetables like

Life interrupts our best intentions!
Layden Chiropractic is just sharing this gentle research-based
reminder of the advantage eating fruits
and vegetables extends to Plainville 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! Layden Chiropractic knows many Plainville chiropractic
patients who will love to read this! There is growing
evidence that fruit and vegetable consumption affects all-cause mortality. In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years,
eating more fruits and vegetables (especially
in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) reduces
all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in lowering inflammation and
lowering C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations,
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks experiences
more favorable outcomes of consuming
more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of
osteoporosis, too. Layden Chiropractic sees many Plainville chiropractic patients with
osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt,
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 be
lovers of vegetables, you’re lucky! Fruit
is more likely 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 tentative about eating fruits and vegetables, try being kid-like.
Take a chance, and allow yourself to play with your food as
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! Layden Chiropractic would love you to share your stories if you take a stab at this!
