Largo Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

It is summer harvest time in the US. The garden abundance is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one avid gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Fortunately for us, gardeners’ generosity overflows. Hollstrom & Associates Inc urges Largo chiropractic patients to appreciatively 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! Hollstrom & Associates Inc welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It’s difficult to split these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, providing 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, eat 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. [We all need a little more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are marvelous 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)] Additionally, peppers assist in fighting 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 stage of their growth. (7,8,9) At any rate, your Largo chiropractor urges you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
