Each natural product is good in its own way and has its own set of useful properties. The trouble is that some products are absorbed so quickly that our product does not have time to extract these benefits. This is where partners come to the rescue – products that go well with each other. Below will be presented 8 such useful bundles that will save you from disease.
Let’s start with a fairly well-known bunch – apple and cocoa. This pair is the best antioxidant. Most after a heavy load. They will also help to increase overall stress resistance, strengthen the immune system, and reduce the risk of a number of diseases (including cancer).
Turmeric and black pepper. They are good individually, but together they are real power. Turmeric has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Black pepper, in turn, has an anticonvulsant and analgesic effect. This bundle is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory agent. Together they will perfectly serve as a prophylactic agent for tumor diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and will help to heal wounds faster. Feel free to add these spices to your diet.
Tomatoes and olive oil for stroke prevention. Olive oil contains healthy fats that lower the level of “bad” cholesterol, which is so bad for our blood vessels. Tomatoes are also a source of antioxidants. Working together they perfectly protect us from cardiovascular and neurological diseases. By the way, these products form the basis of the Mediterranean diet.
Eggs and feta cheese. There is such a useful vitamin for us, which is actively produced in the body under the influence of sunlight – vitamin D. In summer, it is usually quite in each of us, but what to do in winter? But without a sufficient amount of this vitamin in the body, normal absorption of calcium is impossible. Here cheeses will come to our aid, in particular feta cheese, in combination with boiled eggs.
Tomatoes and broccoli. From these two products, you can prepare many different dishes that will be not only tasty, but also terribly healthy: salads, soups, stews. But besides this, both of these vegetables have the ability to prevent the development of cancer, as they have an antitumor effect. But eating tomatoes and broccoli separately will not be as powerful as eating them together. According to research results, tumors in patients who used these two products together decreased by approximately 50 – 55%.
Brussels sprouts + olive oil. This type of cabbage, like cauliflower, is rich in vitamin K, which is necessary for the normal functioning of the liver and intestines. Also, due to its deficiency, gums may bleed. Olive oil, on the other hand, is not only beneficial with the correct fat content, but it also helps vitamin K to be absorbed better. So these two products have found each other.
Bell peppers and beans. And here we have a combination of iron and vitamin C. Iron helps prevent anemia, but it is poorly absorbed by the body. And here vitamin C comes to the rescue, which is full in sweet pepper. It will help not only to assimilate the iron, but also stimulate our immunity. I have already written about products useful for our immunity in one of the previous articles . This bundle is especially useful for people who are vegetarians and vegans.
W akryvayut our list of useful keyboard – onions, garlic and cereals. Whole grains contain a lot of iron and zinc, but these trace elements are very poorly absorbed by the body. It is the sulfur-rich garlic or onion that will help these substances stay in the body and fulfill their function.
And finally, as promised – a bonus. This is a table that will help you find out how different arc products fit together with a friend. + = perfectly match, 0 = not much harm, it is better not to combine these products.
