The gifts of the summer garden abound! The garden abundance is aplenty! 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, generosity abounds in gardeners. Moriarty Chiropractic encourages Nashua chiropractic patients to gratefully accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Moriarty Chiropractic embraces all of these benefits!
ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE
Moriarty Chiropractic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It is difficult to split 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 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 lots of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Green beans have nutrients described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers throughout 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 increase or decrease those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Nashua chiropractor urges you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will reward you!
