West Palm Beach Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

The rewards of the summer garden abound! The garden bounty is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one enthusiastic gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she knows what to do with. Fortunately for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Chiropractic Care encourages West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to gratefully accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and eat them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Chiropractic Care embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Chiropractic Care knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It is hard to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, supplying vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost absorption of lycopene, enjoy tomatoes with some delicious, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all need a little more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are marvelous sources. Additionally, they have lots of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Nutrients in green beans are reported to also be anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth.
