knew strawberries were so beneficial? So many of us eat them just to enjoy
their flavor! Strawberries are also packed with nutrition and have the endorsement of Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
as additions to the Groton treatment plan! Spinal nutrition
is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a common
nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our
goal 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 in addition to 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 production of certain factors that are linked
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 desire keeping their bones as strong as possible! Postmenopausal issues for women include
bone remodeling and resorption that are faster than bone
formation resulting in decreased 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
information like this with our Groton female
chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.
Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues,
diabetes, etc. - can potentially affect all our Groton
chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of
these issues if at all possible. A new study reported
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 conditions often come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and manage our bodies as naturally as possible, a goal of
Groton chiropractic care.
Aging even impacts our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened)
teeth reveal our habits: smoking, drinking tea
and coffee, taking antibiotics, and even using 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)
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is confident that our chiropractic patients
would enjoy these teeth whiteners!
