Are You Getting Enough Folic Acid?Folic Acid (Folate) is a B-Vitamin, and is important for the development of red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body and also helps maintain good circulation of blood throughout your body.

The consumption of natural foods high in Folic Acid plays an important role in prevention or reversal of many illnesses including heart disease, memory loss, and depression, to name a few. When the body gets the nutrients it needs and has good circulation, it can function optimally.

Here is a list of foods that are good sources of Folic Acid:

1. Greens/vegetables: romaine lettuce, spinach, asparagus, parsley, turnip greens, collard greens, mustard greens, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, summer squash, strawberries, papaya, green beans, cabbage, tomatoes, fennel, peas, kale, avocado

2. Beans: pinto beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, navy beans, kidney beans, lentils

3. Whole Grains: whole wheat, wheat germ, bran, brown rice, oatmeal, whole-grain breads and pastas, barley

Love, Health & Happiness,
