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

The rewards of the summer garden abound! The garden abundance 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 knows what to do with. Fortunately for us, gardeners’ generosity flourishes. Chiropractic Solutions urges San Jose chiropractic patients to appreciatively 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! Chiropractic Solutions embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Chiropractic Solutions knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It is hard to detach 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, eat tomatoes with some tasty, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as 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 reported to also be anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth. (7,8,9) At any rate, your San Jose chiropractor encourages you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
