The gifts of the summer garden abound! 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 can use on his/her own. Fortunately for us, generosity
overflows in gardeners. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville urges
St. Francisville chiropractic patients to gratefully take
those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans
and eat them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional
boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville welcomes
all of these benefits!
ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows this is an incredible
list of benefits. It’s difficult to split
these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits.
Tomatoes are so nutrient rich, supplying vitamin C,
potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and
heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost
absorption of lycopene, enjoy 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 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all need
a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber,
green beans are wonderful sources. Additionally,
they have large number of proteins, carotenoids, and
anti-oxidants with only a few calories. Nutrients in green beans are described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers throughout the
body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers offer
anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those
benefits depending on the pepper type and stage
of their growth. (7,8,9) At any rate, your St. Francisville
chiropractor urges you to eat some peppers, tomatoes,
and green beans! Your body will reward you!
