Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Shares Benefits of Strawberries for Bone, Teeth, Cognition and Cardiometabolism04/19/2022Did you know that strawberries are amazingly beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutrition and have the approval of Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc as additions to the Fort Wayne treatment plan! Spinal nutrition is central to many of our chiropractic patients while a general nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our aim to be as healthy as possible. COGNITIVE BENEFIT In a big study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men, researchers reported that the higher consumption of total flavonoids was associated with lower odds of subjective cognitive decline. Flavonoid rich foods include strawberries as well as 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 creation of certain factors that are linked to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all want to keep our cognition as sharp as possible. BONE FORMATION Postmenopausal women also desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women incorporate bone remodeling and resorption that are more rapid than bone formation resulting in reduced bone mineral density and associated high blood pressure and 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 present information like this with our Fort Wayne female chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems. CARDIOMETABOLIC BENEFITS Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues, diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Fort Wayne 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 accompany aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of Fort Wayne chiropractic care. TEETH WHITENING Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened) teeth reveal our habits: smoking, drinking tea and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially accessible whiteners that contain 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc bets our chiropractic patients would enjoy these teeth whiteners! CONTACT Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Make your Fort Wayne chiropractic appointment now.
