Ease Allergies with Folate

Nov 09, 2010 - 0 comments








heard about an interesting new study when I was reading the latest issue of Fitness Magazine this week. A small “Food Fix” bulletin noted that the more folate (also known as folic acid or vitamin B9) you eat, the less chance you have of getting allergy and asthma symptoms from things like mold, pet dander, and dust mites. (Fitness, Jan 2010, p. 106) can read more  on

Scientists will need to conduct more studies in order to make specific recommendations for folate supplements, but it doesn’t hurt to increase your intake of folate-rich foods. Try some of these:
    * Asparagus
    * Leafy greens (spinach, turnip greens, mustard greens, romaine, etc.)  
    * Chickpeas
    * Broccoli
    * Tomatoes
    * Butternut squash
    * Asparagus
    * Lentils
    * Cauliflower
