Presumably, the sugar doesn't have to be in the coffee, the turmeric on the salmon, or the mustard on the broccoli. I want my coffee black, but I'm not opposed to a donut with it. I'd serve salmon with rice to which turmeric has been added, or chicken with a honey-mustard glaze with the broccoli. This approach wold give the cook a lot more flexibility. What would be good to know, though, is whether heating, say, the mustard or the turmeric would destroy the crucial enzyme

I take a supplement that has the synergy of 5 "foods" that make it work so well (tumeric, bacopa, milk thistle, greent tea and ashwagandha). It's been compared to sulforaphane in a published study and is much more effective in reducing free radicals and oxidative stress. I found this article interesting in that you talk about synergy! It really is true.
