Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a giveaway. They’re vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they are
often mixed in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No problem! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t
mind a bit. A healthy Montreal chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right along with the spinal manipulation. As
long as you like eating fruits and vegetables packed
with phytonutrients, you are doing your body a favor!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at least is the opportune
time to relish these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your Montreal chiropractor has an appreciation for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. We
humans consume these fruits and vegetables and gain much
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients support
the body to make sure it is in good working shape and help prevent
disease. Phytonutrients you have probably heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-making), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-decreasing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic reminds that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will be good for
Montreal CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Montreal farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their harvest! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans are plentiful! Seize the opportunity to take
in all of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may reduce prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A new study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in reducing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to support brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories loaded
with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – low
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one cup of zucchini delivers
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That’s
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, improved skin. (5) Do
not turn down those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
