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 endorsement of Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
as additions to the Tonawanda treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a general
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” benefits our
goal to be as healthy as possible.
In a large 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 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
variety, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are related
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, most of us desire 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 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 share
information like this with our Tonawanda female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our Tonawanda
chiropractic patients. We certainly 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 conditions often accompany
aging, so we want to be sensible as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of
Tonawanda chiropractic care.
Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our activities: 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)
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
