Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are also packed with nutritional value and have the approval of Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
as extras in the Fort Wayne treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to most of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our
aim to be as healthy as possible.
In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a higher intake
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 make-up
of one particular variety of strawberry, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the creation of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all want to maintain
our cognitive faculties to be as sharp as possible.
Postmenopausal women also want
to keep their bone as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation which results in less bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a higher
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
information like this with our Fort Wayne female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients. We definitely 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 issues often accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and take
care of our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Fort Wayne chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using commercially accessible
whiteners that have hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (too
much). A new study reported research support for natural, milder,
safer teeth-whiteners like strawberries, lemons, oranges, and other fruits. (5)
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
