Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a giveaway. They’re vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they’re
often used in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No big deal! Chiropractic Care doesn’t
mind a bit. A healthy West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right beside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you like eating fruits and vegetables packed
with phytonutrients, you are doing your body a favor!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at least is the perfect
time to enjoy these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your West Palm Beach chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are full
of phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that protect
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such issues. We
humans consume these fruits and vegetables and benefit
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients keep the body in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve probably heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-making), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-decreasing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Chiropractic Care purports that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will be good for
West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of West Palm Beach farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing their harvest! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans are plentiful! Seize the opportunity to take
in all of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may reduce prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just described 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 loaded
with some protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) as well as manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one cup of zucchini provides
24% of the daily recommendation for vitamin C! That’s
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Do
not refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
