By now, you probably have a good sense of what you should be eating and what you should avoid. But did you know that when you eat certain healthy foods together, they can become even more powerful than when eaten on their own? Here, Dr. Oz unveils 4 foolproof food combinations to boost your health and slow down aging.
Chronic inflammation can wreak havoc on your body, both externally and on a cellular level, making you age faster than you should. Dr. Oz reveals exciting new findings about how certain food combinations can actually slow aging by reducing cellular inflammation, allowing you to look and feel better than ever.
Foolproof Combo to Prevent Cell Damage: Pink Grapefruit and Avocado
Grapefruits are great on their own: They’re rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that’s been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage. But when you pair grapefruit with avocado, the avocado’s healthy fats actually help increase lycopene absorption, making it more available for your body to use.
Try eating the grapefruit and avocado combo 1-2 times a week, using about half of each. Incorporate them into your meals by cooking citrus-glazed shrimp tacos with avocado and grapefruit for a zesty, creamy treat, or simply toss them together in a salad.
