Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a freebie. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they’re
often mixed in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No big deal! Layden Chiropractic does not
mind a bit. A healthy Plainville chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right alongside 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 any rate is the opportune
time to relish these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your Plainville chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are full
of phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such issues. 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 avert
disease. Phytonutrients you have probably heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-decreasing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Layden Chiropractic suggests that consuming
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will be good for
Plainville CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Plainville farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing 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, support heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in reducing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up 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 just a few calories loaded
with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – low
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one 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 turn down those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer garden goodies.
