Salad and vegetables
Eat 3 servings of salad or (raw) vegetables a day (e.g. salad for lunch, vegetables for dinner).
In a recent study by the University of California (UCLA) and Louisiana State University (LSU), all parameters affecting nutrient levels in the blood were taken into account, such as physical exercise, medication and smoking.
What they found is this: The more salad and raw vegetables the study participants ate, the more vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin E, lycopene and beta carotene was found in their blood. Salad and raw vegetables therefore seem to clearly establish a better starting point in terms of preventive health care.
