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 Vancouver Disc Centers
as extras in the Vancouver treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central 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 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 type 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 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 which results in reduced bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure and a greater
risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Consuming freeze-dried strawberry powder raised
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 Vancouver female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Vancouver
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A recent study presented the finding
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 wise as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Vancouver 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 available
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)
Vancouver Disc Centers is confident that our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
