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

It’s summer harvest time in the US. 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. Fortunately for us, generosity overflows in gardeners. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn encourages Ashburn chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and feast on them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to detach these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, 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 tasty, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all need a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are marvelous sources. Additionally, they have many proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a few calories. Green beans have nutrients reported to also be 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 offer 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 Ashburn chiropractor urges you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
