Fort Wayne Chiropractic Nutrition Tip: Enjoy Those Tomato, Bean and Pepper Gifts from Gardeners!

September 01, 2020

It’s summer harvest time in the US. The garden abundance is copious! Every family circle seems to have at least one avid gardener with more tomatoes and green beans and peppers than he or she can use on his/her own. Fortunately for us, generosity abounds in gardeners. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to appreciatively accept those green beans, peppers and tomatoes and eat them for an amazing anti-oxidant and nutritional boost to fight inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and more! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc embraces all of these benefits!


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows this is an incredible list of benefits. It’s hard to separate these actions from each other! They are all healthy benefits. Tomatoes are so full of nutrients, providing 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 delicious, healthy fats like olives, avocados or related oils. (3) Bell and chili peppers are filled with vitamins C, A, E, K1 and potassium, folic acid and fiber. [All of us all could use a bit more fiber in our diets! Speaking of fiber, green beans are wonderful sources. Additionally, they have large number of proteins, carotenoids, and anti-oxidants with only a small number of calories. Green beans have nutrients described as being anticarcinogenic, assisting the prevention and even the stopping the spread of some cancers throughout the body. (4, 5, 6)] Further, peppers help fight inflammation, too, with their anti-oxidants. Raw and roasted peppers offer anti-oxidant benefits. Roasting may increase or decrease those benefits determined by the pepper type and stage of their growth.
