Nutrient Pairings You Need to AVOID



BOOKMARK THIS as a reference when planning nutrition goals for the new year! 📖


First off, it is important to make sustainable goals that are right for YOU when it comes to nutrition. Psst… our A4 Health Dietitians can help you out 🙋‍♀️


When it comes to taking vitamins or pairing specific foods in your meals, it is important to ensure there are NO nutrients competing for absorption ❌


Get the largest benefits from your meals by staying AWAY from these nutrient combos 🚫


➡️ Calcium & iron

➡️ Copper & zinc

➡️ Vitamin A & vitamin K

➡️ Vitamin E & vitamin K


A food example to stay away from: calcium in 🥛 competing for absorption of the iron in 🥩


If you are getting megadoses of vitamin E and/or vitamin A in your diet, this will lower the absorption of vitamin K 🤕 We NEED vitamin k for optimal blood clotting & bone health!!


More often, copper and zinc absorption issues apply to those supplementing these nutrients as a vitamin in their pure form (or suffer from a specific condition lowering one of the nutrients), but it is always important to spread awareness about these

🥊 antagonist relationships 🥊


Before cooking your next dinner or purchasing vitamins to implement into your daily routine (big kudos to you for taking action in improving your health 👏), keep this list in mind!
