This smoothie is a delightful fusion of wholesome ingredients designed to kickstart your day with a burst of flavor and vitality. As, Chiropractors in East Dallas, our job is to help people move better to stay out of pian. When we start to see an increase of people getting sick, we educate our patients on why it is essential that we eat well and give our bodies the essential nutrients they need to keep us feeling our best. Packed with the goodness of kale, peaches, strawberries, and creamy avocado, this refreshing blend not only tastes great, but also nourishes your body from within. Our highlighted ingredient is the peaches, they add a luscious sweetness but also bring a powerful punch of health benefits. Rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, peaches have been shown to contribute to lower inflammation and reduced aches and pains, making this smoothie not just a delicious treat but a wellness elixir. What we put in our body is only one piece of the puzzle. If you notice any increases in aches, pains or sickness, give us a call! We not only address nutrition, but take a deep dive into how our body moves as well. Sitting down with one of the doctors on the Chiro Health team is a great first step to ensure we are eating, moving and thinking well!
“The results obtained showed that the extracts of peels and fleshes of Maciel, Leonense, and Eldorado peach cultivars present free radical scavenging activity in all concentrations tested, with a concentration-dependent action.”
“Peach could be of great interest as an important antioxidant source including chlorogenic acid, and it may provide health-promoting advantages to consumers by intake of this fruit or by utilization of its peels as antioxidant sources in industry.”
“Results showed that tumor growth and lung metastasis were inhibited in vivo by peach polyphenolics in a dose range of 0.8-1.6 mg/day, and these effects were mediated by inhibition of metalloproteinases gene expression. Modulation of metalloproteinase-2, metalloproteinase-3 and metalloproteinase-13 gene expression may be some of the molecular targets for anti-metastatic activity of peach polyphenolics. Therefore, these compounds may constitute a novel chemopreventive tool to reduce the risk of metastasis in the combination therapy when primary cancer is diagnosed.”
“This radical scavenging effect of fruit juices was maintained for up to 90 minutes post-consumption, but the relative DCF fluorescence had rebounded to near the initial levels at 2 hours post-consumption in most samples tested.These results suggest that the consumption of fruits or fruit juices may reduce damage from oxidative stress, and that this effect may be a consequence of the antioxidant activity of fruits in scavenging the reactive oxygen species generated in human plasma.”
“Higher daily consumption of anthocyanidins was associated with elevated serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) concentrations (P trend=0.001), and higher total flavonoid and flavonol intakes were associated with lower serum triglycerides (TG) concentrations (P trend=0.020 and P trend=0.035, respectively) and TG/HDL-C ratios (P trend=0.040 and P trend=0.045, respectively) in female subjects.”
