Millville Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

The gifts of the summer garden are plentiful! The garden abundance is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one avid gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, generosity overflows in gardeners. Wilson Family Chiropractic urges Millville chiropractic patients to gratefully take those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and eat them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Wilson Family Chiropractic welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Wilson Family Chiropractic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to detach these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that benefits cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To enhance 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 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all need a little more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are marvelous sources. Additionally, they have many proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a few calories. Green beans have nutrients reported to also be anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Millville chiropractor encourages you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will reward you!
