Manchester Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy 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 avid gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Luckily for us, generosity overflows in gardeners. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries urges Manchester 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! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows this is an amazing list of benefits. It is difficult to split these actions from each other! They are all beneficial. Tomatoes are very nutrient rich, providing 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, enjoy tomatoes with some delicious, healthy fats like olives, avocados or similar oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are bursting with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [We all could use a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of 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 described as being anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop 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.
