Vitamin A is crucial for better skin. Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, and coconut oil will help you absorb vitamin A faster. So, sweet potatoes and coconut oil makes a perfect pair. Next time you cook sweet potatoes, add some coconut oil in it.
2. Tomato and avocado combination fights cancer
This combination makes a powerful cancer fighting food. Lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, is a powerful cancer fighter. When it’s combined with avocado, the healthy acids in avocado help the lycopene dissolve faster in your body. It also reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
3. Chocolate and apples prevent aging
Who said good tasty food can’t be healthy? Chocolate and apples are delicious and they also have ingredients like flavonoids that boost your heart health. Dark chocolate also has antioxidants to fight aging. The combination of apple and dark chocolate gives you enough antioxidants and vitamin C to fight aging naturally.
“The flavanols in dark chocolate can stimulate the endothelium, the lining of arteries, to produce Nitric Oxide (NO), which is a gas.” – Authority Nutrition
4. Tomato and broccoli boost immune system
Broccoli is known as one of the healthiest superfoods. It’s full of nutrients that fight cancer, boost immune system, and improve heart health. When combined with another superfood like tomato, it gives you amazing results.
No one is sure why, but this combo actually prevents prostate cancer. During a recent Cancer research study, John W. Erdman Jr. Ph.D. of the University of Illinois was able to shrink a large prostate tumor growing on a lab rat. His weapon of course was broccoli and tomatoes. Amazing huh! – Life Advancer
5. Kale and lemon improve blood circulation
Kale is full of iron that boosts your hemoglobin in blood. Sometimes it’s hard to absorb plant based iron easily, and so you need to combine some vitamin C with your plants. Citrus fruits like lemon or lime contains high amount of vitamin C. This food combination gives you high amounts of iron and vitamin C, which would improve your blood hemoglobin count, and circulation. It’s also help people with anemia.
Dana Kennedy of Dana Farber Cancer Institute suggests – “Eating vegetables such as bell peppers, strawberries and broccoli for variations of vitamin C intake, paired with leafy green vegetables for iron.”
Hope you will enjoy eating healthy with some of these super healthy foods. Try to include at least a couple of them as a part of your daily diet. Instead of eating junk food or unhealthy snacks, replace them with an apple or an avocado, or with a combination of several of these powerful disease fighting foods, you’ll love the results.
