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

The gifts of the summer garden are plentiful! The garden abundance is aplenty! Every family circle seems to have at least one passionate gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she knows what to do with. Luckily for us, gardeners’ generosity overflows. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic urges Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to gratefully accept 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! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to separate these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that benefits cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost absorption of lycopene, enjoy tomatoes with some flavorful, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are packed with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all need a bit more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are amazing sources. Additionally, they have large number of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Nutrients in green beans are reported to also be anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth.
