Did you know there are certain foods that you can eat together to supercharge their nutrition powers? Here’s a rundown of some classic combos.
Turmeric and Black Pepper
These two superfoods combine their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties (curcumin and piperine) to increase bioavailability of curcumin by 2000% (that isn’t a typo).
Broccoli and Tomatoes
Both great sources of vitamin C, these two combined increase their efficacy. In one study, tumour weights decreased by 52% after patients consumed broccoli and tomatoes together – much more than if eaten separately.
Tomatoes and Olive Oil
This Italian taste sensation increases the absorption of lycopene – which protects your heart.
Lemon and Spinach (or really any citrus + greens)
Vitamin C increases the absorption of plant-based iron sources. This is an especially good one to know for the veggies and vegans out there.
Kale and Avocado
Kale is a nutritional superhero, but it’s rich sources of vitamins A,D, E, and K are all fat soluble, so eating it with avocado or other healthy fat sources like natural yoghurt will help to ensure you’re absorbing all the good stuff.
