Tonawanda Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

It’s summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty is aplenty! Every family circle seems to have at least one enthusiastic gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation urges Tonawanda chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and feast on them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to detach these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that benefits cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost absorption of lycopene, eat tomatoes with some tasty, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all could use a little more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are wonderful sources. Plus, they have lots of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a few calories. Green beans have nutrients described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Tonawanda chiropractor urges you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will reward you!
