knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutrition and have the approval of Most Chiropractic Clinic
as additions to the Murfreesboro treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a general
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 reported that a higher consumption
of total flavonoids was linked to 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 type, 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 want to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also want
to keep their bone as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone
formation resulting in reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a higher
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
information like this with our Murfreesboro female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Murfreesboro
chiropractic patients. We certainly want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new 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 maintain our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Murfreesboro chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially accessible
whiteners that contain 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)
Most Chiropractic Clinic is confident that our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
