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

It is summer harvest time in the US. The garden bounty 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, gardeners’ generosity abounds. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages Groton chiropractic patients to gratefully 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! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It is hard to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are very 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 enhance absorption of lycopene, eat tomatoes with some flavorful, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 as well as potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all could use a bit 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 reported to also be anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, 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 stage of their growth. (7,8,9) Either way, your Groton chiropractor encourages you to eat some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will repay you!
