It is summer harvest time in the US. 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. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Lynchburg
chiropractor encourages you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes,
and green beans! Your body will reward you!
