Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a giveaway. They are vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they’re
manytimes found in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No problem! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc does not
mind a bit. A healthy Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan includes
them all…right beside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables filled
with phytonutrients, you are doing your body a favor!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at least is the perfect
time to relish these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor has a
fondness 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 gain much
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients keep the body 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc purports that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this summer will do us all some good.
Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC NUTRITION TIP: ENJOY FALL
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Fort Wayne farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing 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 decrease prostate cancer
risk, sustain heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A recent study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in decreasing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans deliver 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 some protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, lots of vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) as well as manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, a cup of zucchini delivers
24% of the daily recommendation for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Do
not refuse those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
