Montreal Healthy Phytonutrients in Late Summer Veggies & Fruits

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!

PHYTONUTRIENTS

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 us all.

(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.
