Nutrient Pairings You Need to AVOID

First off, it is important to make sustainable goals that are right for YOU when it comes to nutrition. Psstโ€ฆ our A4 Health Dietitians can help you out ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

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 โŒ

Get the largest benefits from your meals by staying AWAY from these nutrient combos ๐Ÿšซ

โžก๏ธ Calcium & iron

โžก๏ธ Copper & zinc

โžก๏ธ Vitamin A & vitamin K

โžก๏ธ Vitamin E & vitamin K

A food example to stay away from: calcium in ๐Ÿฅ› competing for absorption of the iron in ๐Ÿฅฉ

If you are getting megadoses of vitamin E and/or vitamin A in your diet, this will lower the absorption of vitamin K ๐Ÿค• 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

๐ŸฅŠ antagonist relationships ๐ŸฅŠ

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 ๐Ÿ‘), keep this list in mind!
