Harmful combinations of ingredients that you should avoid

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Your breakfast smoothies can turn unhealthy if you consume certain combinations. If you’re guilty of mixing these by any chance, it’s time to stop.

The popularity of smoothies has surged in the wellness world due to their quick and simple preparations! Smoothies are a go-to staple for fitness enthusiasts and weight watchers. They are even recommended by nutritionists and dietitians to increase the intake of nutritional values from fruits and vegetables. But do you know that some combinations of ingredients can make your smoothie toxic?

Enjoying the wellness of smoothies at home can feel satisfying but considering their nutritional value when the ingredients are churned together must be kept in mind. Smoothies can be assumed to be healthy and nourishing until they are safe for consumption. Packed with all the greens, fruits, nuts, seeds and milk, the choice of ingredients are unlimited. But making smoothie combinations can be a tricky subject without knowing the nutritional values of all the ingredients. Mixing the wrong ingredients can act as a slow poison for your body rather than being a blend of high nutrition.

Dimple Jangda, Ayurvedic health coach and founder of Prana Healthcare Centre and Academy for Ayurvedic Lifesciences, shared a detailed post on Instagram guiding us about the safe combinations in smoothies.

“Did you know, the wrong combination of smoothies are the leading cause of chronic gut health issues and serious skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, body acne, urticaria and such,” Jangda captioned her post.

How can smoothies be toxic ?

Drinking a smoothie packed with the richness of health-benefiting nutrients can be a healthy and delicious addition to any diet. But the combinations of certain ingredients can prove to detract you from your health instead of being wholesome – even in a smoothie bowl!

While fruits and vitamins provide us with a lot of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fibre, excessive or inappropriate intake of these ingredients surely isn’t a good thing.

Jangda suggests a few permutations and combinations for a toxic smoothie:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Dairy
  • Yogurt

Let us see how:

  1. Fruits:

    Jangda says, “Eat it alone or leave it alone!”. Fruits have active antibacterial enzymes that react with everything they’re mixed with. Fruits cannot be mixed with milk,yogurt, vegetables,grains and pulses or meat! Fruits turn toxic when combined with other food groups and can trigger skin disorders. Hence, it is highly recommended to eat fruits without mixing with other ingredients.

  2. Vegetables:

    It is advised to never blend vegetables with fruits. Jangda says, “Do not mix vegetables”. Vegetables cannot be mixed with fruits in smoothies as they create toxic gases which can trigger digestive issues and skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, acne, urticaria and such.

  3. Yogurt or Indian curd:

    Curd or yogurt is loaded with gut friendly bacteria, but it is considered the heaviest food in Ayurveda, according to Jangda. It must not be mixed with fruits.

Mixing dairy with fruits may slow down your digestion and take longer than usual to get absorbed by the body.
