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 are
often mixed in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No problem! Most Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t
mind a bit. A healthy Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right along with 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 opportune
time to relish these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your Murfreesboro chiropractor has an appreciation for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. We
humans eat 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 prevent
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve likely heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-making), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic suggests that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will do us all some good.
Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Murfreesboro farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their bounty! 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 decrease prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just described 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 so 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) as well as manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, a cup of zucchini provides
24% of the daily recommendation for vitamin C! That’s
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Don’t refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
