Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Alright!
The green beans are a freebie. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are really fruits though they are
manytimes mixed in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No big deal! Wilson Family Chiropractic does not
mind a bit. A healthy Millville chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right beside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables filled
with phytonutrients, you are being kind to your body!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at any rate is the perfect
time to relish these direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Millville chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are full
of phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. We
humans eat these fruits and vegetables and gain much
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients support
the body to make sure it is in good working shape and help prevent
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve likely heard of are
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) Wilson Family Chiropractic reminds that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will be good for
Millville CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Millville farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing their harvest! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans abound! Take advantage of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may decrease prostate cancer
risk, sustain heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A new study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in reducing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans deliver vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to support 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 – low
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 delivers
24% of the daily recommendation 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 harvest goodies.
