BOOST Your Heart and Eyes with THESE 4 Supplement Duos (WOW!)
No one likes wasting money.
I know I don’t.
But I see people all the time who are wasting their money on supplements.
You see, some of them are practically useless on their own.
But by combining certain supplements with other nutrients, you’ll be unlocking their FULL potential to impact your health.
And when you do, you’ll experience benefits like a stronger immune system, reduced risk of heart disease, better eye health, and much more.
Here are four of the top supplement duos.
Vitamin C + Iron
Iron is essential for plenty of important functions in your body, including general energy, focus, body temperature regulation, and a strong immune system.
But to get all the benefits that iron has to offer, you have to make sure you’re getting plenty of vitamin C.
Vitamin C helps enhance the absorption of dietary iron by as much as six-fold.
Meat is a great source of dietary iron. In addition, here are some great C + iron food combos:
- Spinach and red bell peppers
- Broccoli and tomatoes
- Dark chocolate and strawberries
Curcumin + Black Pepper
Curcumin has become the darling of the supplement industry—and for good reason. This key molecule found in the spice turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory that has been shown to help with health conditions ranging from pain to the metabolic syndrome to eye conditions.
But if you’re not taking it with a black pepper, you’re just wasting your money.
Curcumin is rapidly metabolized and eliminated from the body… which means you don’t end up absorbing very much.
But adding piperine (the active compound in black pepper) to curcumin has been shown to increase absorption by… get this… 2000 percent! (No, that’s not a typo!)
In addition to getting more that curcumin has to offer, you’ll also be benefiting from piperine’s health benefits, which include relieving nausea, headaches, and poor digestion.
Folate + Other B Vitamins
When used together, folate (technically vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 are great at reducing homocysteine levels.
Elevated homocysteine increases the risk of heart disease—making this supplement combination a promising way to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Together, these two nutrients have been shown to lower homocysteine by 32 percent.
Lutein + Zeaxanthin
When it comes to eye health, this is one duo you don’t want to be without.
These dietary carotenoids accumulate in the macula region of your retina. They’re beneficial because they protect your eyes from harmful free radicals that impair eye health.
Together, these nutrients have been shown to slow the progression to blindness in age-related macular degeneration (the leading cause of blindness in older adults) and slow the formation of cataracts.
They can reduce markers of oxidative stress, which damage the eyes in diabetic retinopathy. They help reduce inflammation involved in an inflammatory eye condition called uveitis.
