Doctors Health Press Reports on Study: Carrots Even Healthier for Men

By Yoshi Naruse

Long Beach, CA;Chicago, IL;Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 28, 2012 -- Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and writer of many essential health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a study that has been done that consuming carrots is even healthier than previously believed. According to the studys findings, carotenoids, the pigments in fruit and vegetables that make them colorful, can help save older men from hip fractures.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin notes, the information was revealed at a major osteoporosis conference in Singapore, and comes from the Singapore Chinese Health Study, which examined more than 63,000 adults over the age of 45 to investigate the possibility of a link between the carotenoids and hip fracture risk. The participants suffered 1,630 hip fractures between 1993 and 2010.

As the article Avoid Hip Fractures with this Nutrient reports, the men in the study who consumed the most overall vegetables and total carotenoids had the largest safety from hip fractures, which are many times brought on by weakening bones and osteoporosis. The most excellent known carotenoid is the beta-carotene, the orange pigment in carrots and other shiny veggies. For women, vegetables and carotenoids have not save hip bones from fracture.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article tops that a pleasant rule of thumb for carotenoids is that the increased amount of yellow and orange produce a person eats, the additional of these potent antioxidants they will ingest. Carotenoids are reformed by the body into vitamin A.

The article concludes that the study shows that getting carotenoids through the diet is linked to fracture protection for men, but increasing studies will be needed to see if supplementing carotenoids can do the same.
