PAIR: ONION AND BROWN RICE TO: im­prove your im­mu­nity

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Wellbeing -

Brown rice is a good plant source of zinc – a nu­tri­ent that’s es­sen­tially for a healthy im­mune sys­tem, while onions con­tain com­pounds called organosul­furs. On their own, organosul­furs have been shown to help pre­vent cancer, but they also make a cou­ple of the nu­tri­ents that brown rice is rich in, in­clud­ing zinc, more “avail­able” to your di­ges­tive sys­tem. When eaten to­gether, you’ll ab­sorb up to 159 per cent more of the rice’s zinc as a re­sult.
