Moses Chiropractic Shares Benefits of Strawberries for Bone, Teeth, Cognition and Cardiometabolism

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 approval of Moses Chiropractic as extras in the West Palm Beach treatment plan! Spinal nutrition is key to many of our chiropractic patients while a common nutrition tip like “Eat some strawberries!” advances our aim to be as healthy as possible.

COGNITIVE BENEFIT

In a large study of 49,493 women and 27,842 men, researchers reported that a higher intake of total flavonoids was associated with 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 variety of strawberry, Romina, was found beneficial in reducing and delaying the creation of certain factors that are related to Alzheimer’s. (2) As we age, most of us desire to keep our cognition as sharp as possible.

BONE FORMATION

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 resulting in less bone mineral density and associated high blood pressure as well as a higher 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 West Palm Beach female chiropractic patients so they can keep ahead of these problems.

CARDIOMETABOLIC BENEFITS

Cardiometabolic issues – cardiovascular/renal/liver issues, diabetes, etc. - can potentially impact all our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients. We definitely want to keep ahead of these issues if at all possible. A new 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 come with age, so we want to be wise as we age and maintain our bodies as naturally as we can, a goal of West Palm Beach chiropractic care.

TEETH WHITENING

Aging even affects our teeth! Our aging (discolored/weakened) teeth reveal 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) Moses Chiropractic knows our chiropractic patients would like these teeth whiteners!
