Eating right just may allow you to live longer! Chiropractic Solutions knows many San Jose chiropractic patients who will love to read this!

In a study of over 6000 people over 6 years, eating more fruits and vegetables (particularly in those who consumed 7 servings or more a day) reduces all-cause mortality. (1) The variety of fruits and vegetables takes on an important role in reducing inflammation and decreasing C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations, too. (2)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLE INTAKE IMPROVES BMD

Lower bone mineral density (BMD) folks see more positive outcomes of consuming more fruits and vegetables and a lower rate of osteoporosis, too. Chiropractic Solutions sees many San Jose chiropractic patients with osteoporosis who want to do what they can to halt, treat and prevent it. In one study, the more fruits and vegetables consumed, the higher the BMD and lesser the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age folks. And for those who may not enjoy vegetables, you’re fortunate! Fruit is more likely advantageous in this concern than vegetables. At least increase your fruit intake! (3)
