New Spring Chiropractic wants every patient to reach a higher level of health and maintain better function and feeling. Being that we are all dynamic and unique individuals, every person does not need the same approach to their health and the care to get back to health. Realizing this truth, we strive to address complex issues with appropriate complimentary recommendations. One way of addressing certain problems falls under lifestyle guidance and modification. One of our chiropractic health tips is with the addition of certain vegetables and supplementation.
If you’re not aware, vegetables are essential in every person’s diet and should be a part of every meal if possible. They are packed with nutrients that you simply can’t replace with vitamins alone and add so much flavor in every recipe they’re used. There is exciting discoveries that support this fact even more, and I want to share how it choosing a special vegetable can help you in your pursuit of being healthier.
This vegetable is no other than broccoli and broccoli sprouts. These sprouts are packed with health promoting properties. Research has shown that eating these has been associated with decreased incidence, multiplicity, and tumor growth in animal cancer models. The vegetable has a highly studied metabolite called sulforaphane. It is a naturally occurring metabolite in broccoli and is a powerful antioxidant. Besides that, it is also antibacterial, and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. This equates to less free radicals (which advance the aging process), less sickness from infections, and heart-protecting factors, all in one vegetable!
Studies are being done to see its effects on vascular health, certain cancers, upper respiratory inflammation, as well as its effect on stomach harming bacteria called H. Pylori. The sprouts can be found in tablet form, or you can opt for broccoli florets for great health benefits too. So we recommend you to reach for these tasty green at your next meal. You may be protecting your long-term health of you and your family.
