Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a freebie. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are really fruits though they are
manytimes found in dishes thought to be vegetable
based. No big deal! Moses Chiropractic does not
mind a bit. A healthy West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right alongside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables packed
with phytonutrients, you are doing your body a favor!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at least is the perfect
time to enjoy these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your West Palm Beach chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such issues. We
humans eat these fruits and vegetables and gain much
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients keep the body in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you have probably heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-decreasing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Moses Chiropractic purports that consuming
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will do us all some good.
West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of West Palm Beach farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their bounty! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans are plentiful! Take advantage of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may decrease prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in reducing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans deliver vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to support brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories loaded
with some protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one cup of zucchini delivers
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That’s
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Don’t turn down those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer garden goodies.
Moses Chiropractic cannot think of a better way to support
your healthy lifestyle! Good nutrition and a good
chiropractic treatment go together well!
