It’s summer harvest time in the US. 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 can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, gardeners’ generosity flourishes. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center encourages
Pensacola chiropractic patients to gratefully take
those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans
and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional
boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center welcomes
all of these benefits!
ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows this is an incredible
list of benefits. It’s difficult to split
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 enhance
absorption of lycopene, enjoy tomatoes with some flavorful,
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. [We all could use
a bit more fiber in our diets! About fiber,
green beans are amazing sources. Additionally,
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 in the
body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have
anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those
benefits determined by the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) Either way, your Pensacola
chiropractor urges you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes,
and green beans! Your body will reward you!
