Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Ok.
The green beans are a giveaway. They’re vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are really fruits though they’re
manytimes found in dishes thought to be made of veggies. No big deal! Back And Neck Care Center doesn’t
mind a bit. A healthy Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right alongside the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables packed
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 direct-out-of-the-garden delights!
Your Severna Park chiropractor has an appreciation for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that protect
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. We
humans consume these fruits and vegetables and benefit
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients support
the body to make sure it is in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you’ve probably 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) Back And Neck Care Center purports that consuming
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will be good for

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of Severna Park farmers and backyard gardeners
are sharing 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, sustain heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A new study just described 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 support brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories loaded
with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – low
calories, high protein, lots of vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, one cup of zucchini provides
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That is
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Do
not turn down those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
