Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

It is summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty 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 can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, gardeners’ generosity abounds. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and feast on them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It is difficult to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so 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, enjoy tomatoes with some tasty, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are packed 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! Speaking of fiber, green beans are amazing sources. Plus, they have many proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Nutrients in green beans are described as being anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits depending on the pepper type and stage of their growth.
