Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Alright!
The green beans are a giveaway. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they are
manytimes mixed in dishes thought to be vegetable
based. No big deal! Hollstrom & Associates Inc does not
mind a bit. A healthy Largo chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right beside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you like eating fruits and vegetables packed
with phytonutrients, you are being kind to your body!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at least is the opportune
time to relish these direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Largo chiropractor has an appreciation for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that protect
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. 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’ve likely heard of are
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-making), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc purports that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will do us all some good.
Largo CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Largo 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, support heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A new study just described 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 shore up brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories loaded
with some protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – low
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 provides
24% of the daily recommendation for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, improved skin. (5) Don’t refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc can’t think of a better way to complement
your body’s health! Good nutrition and a good
chiropractic treatment go together well!
