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

The rewards of the summer garden are plentiful! The garden abundance is aplenty! Every family circle seems to have at least one passionate gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she knows what to do with. Luckily for us, gardeners’ generosity overflows. Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages Lynchburg chiropractic patients to gratefully accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and eat them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Palmer Chiropractic Center embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Palmer Chiropractic Center knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s difficult to detach these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are so nutrient rich, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that benefits cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost absorption of lycopene, enjoy tomatoes with some tasty, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are packed with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all could use a little more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are amazing sources. Plus, 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 in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage.
