Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Alright!
The green beans are a giveaway. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they’re
often used in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No problem! Disc Centers Of America doesn’t
mind a bit. A healthy Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right along with the spinal manipulation. As
long as you like eating fruits and vegetables filled
with phytonutrients, you are being kind to your body!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at any rate is the perfect
time to enjoy these direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor has an appreciation for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are full
of phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that protect
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such issues. We
humans consume these fruits and vegetables and benefit
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients keep the body in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you have likely heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) Disc Centers Of America purports that consuming
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will be good for

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Buffalo, NY farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their harvest! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans abound! Take advantage of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may reduce prostate cancer
risk, support heart and eyesight health, protect
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just described the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in decreasing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to shore up brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories packed with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – low
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) as well as manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one cup of zucchini delivers
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, improved skin. (5) Do
not refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
