-          Nori (seaweed): Nori is a vegetarian source of vitamin B12, iron and protein. 1

-          Rice vinegar: The acetic acid of rice vinegar has a positive effect on the digestive system, it improves the intake of nutrients by the intestine. It also prevents the formation of fatty peroxides, that way, aging is prevented. 2

-          Cucumber: Cucumbers are low in calories and have large amounts of fibers and nutrients. Research shows it helps to maintain our connective tissue when we get older. It is also a good source of the mineral silicon, an important component of connective tissue, bones and muscles. 3

-          Soy sauce: Soy sauce is a good salt substitute, by using soy sauce the salt content in dishes can be reduced from 50 to 17 percent. This way escessive salt consumption and associated symptoms as high blood pressure and eventually cardiovascular disease can be prevented. 4

-          Cumin: Cumin is very dense in iron, providing almost 20% of your daily iron in one teaspoon. It also aids digestion by increasing the activity of digestive proteins. 1,2

-          Avocado: Avocados are high in antioxidants, including Lutein and Zeaxanthin. These nutrients are very important for eye health and lower the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. 3,4,5,6,7

-          Kidney beans: Cooked kidney beans are an excellent dietary choice for diabetics and those who want to stabilize their blood sugar levels because they rank very low on the glycemic index. 8,9

-          Coriander: Multiple studies have shown coriander to have strong anti-histamine properties that can reduce the uncomfortable effects of seasonal allergies and hay fever (rhinitis). 10

-          Lemon: Vitamin C and citric acid in lemons help absorb non-heme iron from plants, this may help prevent anemia. 11,12

-          Wine: Studies have shown that moderate wine drinking can improve the balance of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) to high-density lipoprotein (HDL). The alcohol in wine limits blood clotting by making the platelets (thrombocytes) in the blood less prone to stick together and reducing the levels of fibrin protein that binds them together. 1,2

-          Sprite: After we drink, our livers release the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) that breaks ethanol into acetaldehyde, which is in turn metabolised by enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) into acetate. Acetaldehyde is believed to be the real cause of headaches and nausea associated with hangovers. According to scientists at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, Sprite speeds the ALDH process up, therefore minimising the effects of hangovers. 3

-          Orange: Oranges are rich in antioxidants. Vitamin C (antioxidant) can neutralise free radicals by donating electrons, this protects our body against oxidative damage.

-          Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract have powerful liver-protective abilities, as well as anti-inflammatory abilities in animals. Researchers found that treating with vanillin led to lower overall inflammation in animals, the effect of vanilla extract on humans is not known. 5

-          Cacao: Cocao contains flavanols, for example epicatechins which can increase nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability. NO maintains endothelial health by influencing vasodilation, preventing leukocyte adhesion and by lowering coagulatory and inflammatory factors. 6
