The Power of Folate

B vitamins are important for energy and nerve health. The most famous of them is Folic Acid that obstetricians recommend to pregnant women to help with the spinal development in fetuses. New scientific evidence has shown that it also helps your brain. Researchers found in a clinical study that folate levels were reduced in people with Alzheimer’s as compared to healthy controls. For those short on folate should supplement and eat foods rich in folate such as salads, leafy greens, peas, broccoli, and hummus. What better way to increase your brain function, and cognition!

  1. You have given me an idea, a twist on a Middle Eastern recipe. If I can incorporate such greens into the dish, I’ll call it a “Folatel Falafel!” Thanks 😊
