Folate / Vitamin C / Vitamin D
In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I want to talk about the necessity of folate, vitamin C and vitamin D in the body.
Folate: Folate is needed in the body to create red blood cells and produce energy. This nutrient helps anxiety, stress and depression. Folate is important nutrient during pregnancy; it regulates the nerve cell formation of fetal; 400 mg folate can also prevent neural tube defect. Folate functions well when is combined with vitamin B12 and C. Folate can be found in mushrooms, milk, lentils, brown rice, yeast, whole grains and whole wheat.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a rich source of antioxidants that can regulate anti-stress hormone and improve the body’s immune system. Vitamin C helps to prevent colds and flues, cancer, asthma and infections. Vitamin C can also increase iron absorption. Vitamin C reduces the level of bad cholesterol known as HDL and increases the level of good cholesterol known as HDL.
Vitamin C can heal wounds, burn and cuts and attack free radicals in the body. Vitamin C deficiencies are slower wound healing, fatigue, susceptibility to infections, bruising easily and tooth loss. Vitamin C can be found in green veggies and fruits. Broccoli, grape fruit, fennel seed, nettle, orange, peppermint and yellow duck have high amount of vitamin C.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is essential for phosphorous and calcium absorption. Vitamin D is essential for growth, protecting muscles from getting weak and regulating the heartbeat. Vitamin D can also improve colon and breast cancer; boost body’s immune system and enhance healthy bones.
Sunlight is a high source of vitamin D. In northwest area where we do not get a lot of sun, many people have vitamin D deficiencies that can cause problems with calcium absorption, night vision, weight loss and mouth and throat problems. Vitamin D can be found in greens, salmon, sweet potatoes, tuna, oatmeal, vegetables, liver, sardines and egg yolk. Herbals such as nettle, parsley, alfalfa and horsetail are a high source of vitamin D.
