Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a freebie. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they are
often mixed in dishes thought to be vegetable
based. No problem! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation does not
mind a bit. A healthy Tonawanda chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right beside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables packed
with phytonutrients, you are doing your body a favor!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at any rate is the opportune
time to enjoy these direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Tonawanda chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such problems. We
humans eat these fruits and vegetables and benefit
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients support
the body to make sure it is in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve probably heard of are
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation reminds that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will do us all some good.
Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Tonawanda farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their bounty! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans abound! Seize the opportunity to take
in all of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may decrease prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in decreasing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to shore up brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in just a few calories packed with some protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, a cup of zucchini provides
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, improved skin. (5) Do
not refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer garden goodies.
