knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are additionally packed with nutritional
benefit and have the approval of Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
as additions to the Pensacola treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits 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 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 strawberry type, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, we all desire 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 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 (a vital hormone in bone
formation) in postmenopausal women with pre/stage-1 hypertension. (3) We present
information like this with our Pensacola female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Pensacola
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new 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 come with age, so we want to be sensible as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Pensacola chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially available
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)
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
