Malverne Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

The gifts of the summer garden are plentiful! The garden abundance is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one passionate 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. Malverne Health & Wellness encourages Malverne chiropractic patients to appreciatively take 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! Malverne Health & Wellness welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Malverne Health & Wellness knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It’s hard to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are very full of nutrients, providing vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To enhance absorption of lycopene, enjoy tomatoes with some delicious, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us 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 few calories. Green beans have nutrients described as being anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers in the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may raise or lower those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth. (7,8,9) Either way, your Malverne chiropractor encourages you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
