Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional
benefit and have the endorsement of Layden Chiropractic
as additions to the Plainville treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher consumption
of total flavonoids was linked to lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods consist of
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical structure
of one particular variety of strawberry, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all desire to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation resulting in decreased bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder raised
insulin-like growth factor-1 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We share
research like this with our Plainville female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Plainville
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A recent study reported
that eating strawberries for 4 weeks significantly improved antioxidant
status, endothelial function, and inflammation (tumor necrosis factor-α) in
adults with cardiometabolic risks. (4) These conditions often come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Plainville chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially available
whiteners that have hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study offered research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Layden Chiropractic bets our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
