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 endorsement of Back And Neck Care Center
as extras in the Severna Park treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is central to most of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our
aim to be as healthy as possible.
In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men,
researchers discovered that a 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 make-up
of one particular type of strawberry, Romina, was documented to be beneficial in reducing
and delaying the production of certain factors that are linked
to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, most of us 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 incorporate
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation which results in decreased bone
mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as 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
research like this with our Severna Park female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these issues.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Severna Park
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study presented the finding
that consuming 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 sensible as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Severna Park chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reflect our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even applying commercially available
whiteners that have 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)
Back And Neck Care Center is confident that our chiropractic patients
would like these teeth whiteners!
