The gifts of the summer garden are
garden abundance 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 knows
what to do with. Fortunately for us, generosity
abounds in gardeners. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR urges
Colorado Springs chiropractic patients to appreciatively take
those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans
and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional
boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR welcomes
all of these benefits!
ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows this is an amazing
list of benefits. It is difficult to separate
these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits.
Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, supplying 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 flavorful,
healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and
chili peppers are packed with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all need
a little more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber,
green beans are wonderful sources. Plus,
they have large number of proteins, carotenoids, and
anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Nutrients in green beans are described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers in the
body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have
anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those
benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Colorado Springs
chiropractor encourages you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes,
and green beans! Your body will repay you!
