To be in perfect health
The Best Combinations Of Foods For Your Perfect Health
Some healthy foods can gain incredible power when combined with other healthy foods. The researchers studied which foods work best combined and discovered a fascinating thing. If you eat this combination, you will be in perfect health.
Oatmeal and Orange Juice
One US study has found that drinking orange juice (which is rich in vitamin C) during eating oatmeal clean up your arteries and prevent heart attack two times more efficient than when with breakfast enter one or the other separately. Organic compounds, phenols, are found in both of these foods and stabilize the so-called “bad” cholesterol when eaten together.
Broccoli and Tomatoes
A new US study showed that this combination prevents prostate cancer, but it was not established why. Scientists from the University of Illinois have conducted studies in rats and showed that from the treatment of broccoli and tomatoes effective can be only castration.
Blueberry and Grape
The more diverse fruit you eat, the healthier you will be. One US study investigated the antioxidant capacity of different types of fruit (apples, oranges, blueberries, grapes) and compared the different combination of these fruits. It was found that a mixture of fruit has more antioxidant power. Especially healthy is combination of blueberries and grapes, but the more fruit you eat, the better.
Apple and Chocolate
Apples are known for having high levels of quercetin, a flavonoid which acts against inflammation and that has the most in the crust of apple.
Quercetin reduces the risk of allergy, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and the risk of prostate cancer and lung cancer.
On the other hand, chocolate, grapes, red wine and tea contain flavonoid called catechin, an antioxidant that reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and cancer. Together, quercetin and catechin improve the health of the cardiovascular system.
Lemon and Kale
Vitamin C helps that iron from plant origin be better absorbed. If you combine vitamin C from citrus, from green leafy vegetables, strawberries, tomatoes and broccoli with iron from kale, spinach, leeks and cereals, you will improve your immune system and strengthen the muscles more efficiently than when you eat these foods separately.
Soy and Salmon
It is true that soy reduces sperm count, but it only applies to processed soy – soy cheese, soy milk and the like. This means that the soy in unprocessed form is perfectly healthy if consumed moderately. Soy Isoflavone called genistein inhibits enzymes in the colon and prostate and increases the amount of vitamin D in these tissues. Higher levels of vitamin D offer better protection against cancer. A salmon and tuna are rich in vitamin D, so a perfect meal will be a combination of salmon and tofu cheese.
Peanuts and Whole Grains
According to Diane Birt at the University of Iowa, certain amino acids that are not found in wheat is located in peanuts. Rarely at a single meal, you can enter the whole chain of amino acids (the best form of protein), which are responsible for building and maintaining muscle, especially in old age.
So it turns out that a sandwich of peanut butter is not unhealthy if it is combined with bread from whole wheat grains and eat moderately. So it’s good that immediately after exercise, eat this sandwich, instead of to drink energy shakes.
Meat and Rosemary
Roasting meat over an open fire produces carcinogens, but if you experiment with spices, you can reduce their bad effects. Rosemary goes well with all meat from the grill and contains antioxidants – Rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid. A recent study has shown that it reduces the amount of heterocyclic amines, which are found in meat roasted at 190-200 degrees. It is believed that antioxidants from rosemary literally soak up dangerous free radicals from the meat.
Fish and Garlic
Most seafood contains a large number of nutrients: minerals such as zinc, iron, copper, iodine and selenium together make the best natural oil that acts against inflammation and reduces cholesterol. And if you prepare the fish with garlic, you reduce the total amount of cholesterol better than to eat only fish. Garlic maintains a low level of “bad” cholesterol.
