Murfreesboro Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

It is summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty 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, gardeners’ generosity abounds. Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Most Chiropractic Clinic welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Most Chiropractic Clinic knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It is difficult to split these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To enhance absorption of lycopene, eat tomatoes with some flavorful, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are packed with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all need a little more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are amazing sources. Plus, they have many 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)] Further, peppers help fight 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) Either way, your Murfreesboro chiropractor urges you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
