Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Alright!
The green beans are a freebie. They’re vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are really fruits though they are
manytimes found in dishes thought to be vegetable
based. No problem! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does not
mind a bit. A healthy Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right alongside 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 any rate is the opportune
time to enjoy these direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are full
of phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such problems. We
humans eat these fruits and vegetables and gain much
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients support
the body to make sure it is in good working shape and help prevent
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve probably heard of are
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic purports that consuming
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will be good for
Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Fort Wayne farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing 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 reduce prostate cancer
risk, support heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just described the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in decreasing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up 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 packed with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, a cup of zucchini delivers
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, improved skin. (5) Do
not refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer garden goodies.
