Research shows certain foods when paired or combined together become healthier. The thought behind this or the concept is refereed to as “food synergy.” The health experts explain the concept as how two foods can be greater than the sum of their parts, or when eaten alone. Synergy can also mean a collaboration, cooperation, teamwork, working together, or in unity.
Much like our head article image demonstrates. A time watch with many parts that work in synergy or in harmony to keep time.
Food Combinations Working In Synergy
That is what food does when paired and eaten together. The most common example we can think of is, tomatoes paired with mozzarella, and including fresh basil and olive oil.
Eaten together, makes each of these foods, cancer fighting, anti heart disease compounds more available to the body. In other words, they each have a benefit to the body, but together, it is like 5 times more beneficial than each alone, and that is food synergy.
The concept of food synergy stress that good health may not just be the wonderful verity of healthy foods we eat, but rather how you combine them. Eating food combinations that biochemically balance each other.
But when you marinate the steak with the herb rosemary, which is rich in antioxidants, like rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid, it nutralizes the caroinogenic compounds when a steak reaches 325 degrees.
