Benefit Boosting Food Combos


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.
