Food scientists have discovered thousands of such bioactive phytochemicals in fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains. "Researchers are now discovering that these chemicals often work better in pairs or groups, proving that supplements with single nutrients just can't match the healing power of whole foods," says Elaine Magee, a registered dietitian and the author of Food Synergy.
