Buffalo, NY Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Accept 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 can use on his/her own. Fortunately for us, gardeners’ generosity abounds. The Novelli Wellness Center encourages Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to appreciatively take those tomatoes, peppers, and green beans and eat them for a remarkable anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! The Novelli Wellness Center embraces all of these benefits!

ANTI-OXIDANT, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-DISEASE

The Novelli Wellness Center knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s difficult to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, supplying vitamin C, potassium and lycopene, an anti-oxidant that supports cancer and heart disease prevention and anti-inflammatory activity. (1,2) To enhance absorption of lycopene, enjoy 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. [We all could use a bit more fiber in our diets! About fiber, green beans are amazing sources. Additionally, they have lots of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a few calories. Nutrients in green beans are described as being anticarcinogenic, helping prevent and even stop the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Additionally, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers have anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth.
