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

It’s summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty 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 knows what to do with. Fortunately for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Satterwhite Chiropractic urges Oxford chiropractic patients to gratefully 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! Satterwhite Chiropractic embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Satterwhite Chiropractic knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It is difficult to detach these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, supplying 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, eat tomatoes with some flavorful, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting 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 lots of 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)] 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 depending on the pepper type and stage of their growth. (7,8,9) Either way, your Oxford chiropractor encourages you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will reward you!
