Eggs and spinach for better eyesight (curry and black pepper for diabetes prevention)
Some foods complement each other perfectly. These combinations have a great preventive and curative effect on the human body

  1. Eggs and spinach for better vision – egg yolks and spinach are rich sources of lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids preserve the health of the eye macula. If they are eaten at the same time, the absorption of carotenoids increases 8 times (because they are fat-soluble nutrients). The organism accepts these foods better if they are eaten with fat (such as unsaturated fatty acid, which eggs are abundant in).
  2. Black onion and brown rice for better immunity – brown rice is a significant vegetable source of zinc (zinc is an important mineral for the immune system). Black onions contain components called “organosulfur compounds” (which have been proven to prevent the development of cancerous diseases and are much more effective when combined with zinc). Zinc taken with organosulfur compounds is absorbed in the body by as much as 159% more.
  3. Curry and black pepper for the prevention of diabetes – curry contains turmeric (a rich source of the antioxidant curcumin, which reduces the body’s insulin response by 20% after a meal. This greatly contributes to long-term protection against the development of diabetes. However, curcumin is not well absorbed in the body unless do not use with black pepper. Black pepper is rich in piperine (a component that increases the absorption of cucurmine in the body by as much as 2,000%).
  4. Tofu and red pepper for a lower risk of heart attack – tofu is a rich source of phytoestrogens (plant components that mimic the effect of estrogen), while pepper is rich in vitamin C. Phytoestrogens prevent the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol), but their effect increases when ingested with vitamin C. This is very important for the health of the cardiovascular system (because oxidized LDL cholesterol makes the arteries stiff and hard, which is one of the biggest risks of a heart attack).
  5. Sardines and boiled tomatoes for the prevention of heart disease – these foods are rich in nutrients that are important for heart health – omega-3 fatty acids (sardines) and the antioxidant lycopene (tomatoes). If both foods are eaten together, the benefits for the heart are significantly increased. A survey was conducted with respondents. The women drank tomato juice together with omega-3 fatty acids for 15 days. It was found that those who drank only tomato juice had an extremely low risk of heart disease. The explanation lies in the fact that lycopene is more digestible if taken with omega-3 fatty acids.
  6. Cooked broccoli and radish to relieve joint pain – broccoli is a rich source of sulforaphane (a compound that slows the deterioration of cartilage in the joints). This is one of the most important prerequisites for preventing the progression of osteoarthritis. However, the amount of sulforaphane decreases significantly if broccoli is frozen or overcooked. That’s why you should always cook with radishes that contain mitosinase (an enzyme that contributes to restoring the level of suloraphane in broccoli).
