Benefit Boosting Food Combos

[ad_1]

Synergistic foods help us get the optimum level of nutrients that the body needs to function properly. “You are not what you eat, you are what you absorb”.⠀
-⠀
?⠀
1️⃣Almonds + Yogurt⠀
Vitamins A, D, and E (fat-soluble vitamins) are activated & absorbed best when eaten w/ fat. Olive oil is also a great option to pair with other sources of these vitamins (fish, greens, sweet potatoes, carrots, etc).⠀
??⠀
2️⃣Tomatoes & Avocados:⠀
Tomatoes contain the carotenoid lycopene, which may decrease the risk of some cancers. Healthy fats make carotenoids more bioavailable.⠀
??⠀
3️⃣ Blueberries & Grapes:⠀
Antioxidant effects of consuming a combo of fruits are synergistic. The same goes for mixing up antioxidant-rich veggies as well??⠀
?⠀
4️⃣Garlic + Fish:⠀
There’s a synergy of nutrients inside a piece of fish: its minerals help make the best use of the anti-inflammatory fish oils EPA & DHA. Garlic itself has a long list of benefits. Together the combo helps reduce LDL cholesterol as well.⠀
??⠀
5️⃣Green Tea and Lemon:⠀
Vitamin C helps body absorb antioxidants in the green tea up to 6x more than what you would get if you drank it alone. Study -participants that had tea daily for 4 weeks while weight training showed a significant increase in lean body mass & resting metabolic rate, in contrast to the control group.⠀
??⠀
6️⃣Eggs and Cheese:⠀
Vitamin D in egg yolks maximizes the absorption of the calcium in cheese. Sufficient calcium in the body will promote neurotransmitter health (mood/focus) & stabilize hormones to reduce PMS & weight gain.
