Don't individualize -- synergize! These super-combos, all examples of food synergy, can help you fight cancer, absorb iron, boost your cardiovascular system, and more.

Synergize Your Diet

Dynamic duos have always been a part of our history. Think Batman and Robin. Simon and Garfunkel. Thelma and Louise. Sure, you can watch Batman before Robin dropped into the scene or listen to Paul Simon singing solo, but it's the collaboration that makes each individual truly shine. Its synergy -- the sum of the two is much greater than their individual contributions.

From Superheroes to Superfoods

Food science has taken this two-heads-are-better-than-one idea a step further. "Food synergy" is one of the newest buzzwords in nutrition. It consists of a cast of known healthy foods and the sidekicks that, if eaten together, create an even bigger nutritional bang. Some suggestions -- like combining a high-fat dressing with the healthy greens and veggies in your salad -- might surprise you.

Ready to supercharge your diet? These six food combos will take your kitchen staples to the next level.
