The rewards of the summer garden are
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
overflows in gardeners. Minster Chiropractic Center encourages
Minster chiropractic patients to gratefully take
those green beans, peppers and tomatoes
and eat them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional
boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Minster Chiropractic Center welcomes
all of these benefits!
ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE
Minster Chiropractic Center knows this is an amazing
list of benefits. It is difficult to detach
these actions from each other! They are all beneficial.
Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, supplying vitamin C,
potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that benefits cancer and
heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To enhance
absorption of lycopene, eat tomatoes with some delicious,
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. [All of us all could use
a little more fiber in our diets! About fiber,
green beans are wonderful sources. Plus,
they have many 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 assist in fighting 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 Minster
chiropractor urges you to eat some peppers, tomatoes,
and green beans! Your body will repay you!
