Did 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.
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.
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 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.
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!
