Plainville Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

It’s summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty is copious! 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. Luckily for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Layden Chiropractic urges Plainville 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! Layden Chiropractic embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Layden Chiropractic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It is hard to split these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are very full of nutrients, providing 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 filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all could use a bit more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are wonderful sources. Additionally, they have many proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Green beans have nutrients reported to also be 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 increase or decrease those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage.
