Nutrients Combination-Apples & Chocolate

Food contains a mixture of nutrients that interact with one another, sometimes they join forces, other times they cancel each other out. Many foods work well when eaten together because of the complementary nutrients each contains. When you consume food, certain dishes must be taken in combination with another to obtain better absorption and utilization of nutrients present in the foods. 

Apples are high in an anti-inflammatory flavonoid called quercetin, especially found in their skins. Quercetin has shown to reduce the risk of allergies, heart attack, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and prostate and lung cancers.

Chocolate, grapes, red wine, and tea, on the other hand, contain the flavonoid catechin, an antioxidant that reduces the risks for atherosclerosis and cancer.

Together, catechins and quercetin loosen clumpy blood platelets, improving cardiovascular health and providing anticoagulant activity.

Tip: Quercetin is also found in buckwheat, onions, and raspberries.
