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 approval of Chiropractic Solutions
as additions to the San Jose treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
aim 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 associated with lesser risk of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods include
strawberries in addition to oranges, citrus fruits and juices,
apples, pears, celery, peppers, and bananas. (1) The chemical structure
of one particular strawberry
variety, 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, most of us 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 reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder increased
insulin-like growth factor-1 (an important hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We share
research like this with our San Jose female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our San Jose
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A recent study presented the finding
that consuming 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 accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
San Jose chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying 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)
Chiropractic Solutions bets our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
