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 our body in order to create red blood cells and produce energy. This nutrient can help anxiety, stress and depression. Folate is important nutrient during pregnancy; it regulates the nerve cell formation of fetus; 400 mg folate can also prevent neural tube defect. Folate functions well when is combined with vitamin B12 and vitamin 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 can reduce the level of bad cholesterol known as HDL and can increase 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 can result in 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.

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 the body’s immune system and enhance the growth of healthy bones.

If you have vitamin D deficiency you should get more exposure to sun. In northwest where people do not enough sun, many have vitamin D deficiencies. Keep in mind that deficiencies in vitamin D can cause problems with calcium absorption, loss of 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. Herbs such as nettle, parsley, alfalfa and horsetail are also a high source of vitamin D.
