Auburn Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept 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 avid gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. urges Auburn chiropractic patients to gratefully accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and eat them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to split these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so nutrient rich, 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 related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all could use a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of 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 reported to also be anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping 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 offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) Either way, your Auburn chiropractor encourages you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
