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

It is 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, gardeners’ generosity flourishes. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center urges Paramus chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It is difficult to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, 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, eat tomatoes with some delicious, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting 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. Plus, they have large number of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Green beans have nutrients reported to also be anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers in 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 determined by the pepper type and growth stage. (7,8,9) Either way, your Paramus chiropractor urges you to enjoy some peppers, tomatoes, and green beans! Your body will reward you!
