West Palm Beach Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

The rewards of the summer garden are plentiful! The garden abundance is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one passionate 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. Moses Chiropractic urges West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and eat them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Moses Chiropractic welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Moses Chiropractic 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 so 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 similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all need a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are wonderful sources. Plus, they have many proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Green beans have nutrients described as being anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop 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 offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage.
