Montreal Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy 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 passionate gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she knows what to do with. Fortunately for us, gardeners’ generosity overflows. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages Montreal chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and feast on them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic welcomes all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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, supplying vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To boost absorption of lycopene, eat tomatoes with some tasty, 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 little more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are wonderful sources. Additionally, they have lots of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Nutrients in green beans are described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers assist in fighting inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits depending on the pepper type and growth stage.
