Foods Containing Folic Acid

by Stuart

Medical terms sometimes are not easy to understand. For common people who do not have relation with medical worlds, there are so much weird words that make us confuse. This situation reminds me something as several days ago when I read something about Foods containing the vitamin. At first I do not really know what it is. What is that actually? Is it some kind of “Foli Age” or what? Finally, after a little searching in Google, I know that I have to pass what I know about this vitamin. Therefore, this article is delivered to anyone who is perhaps interested to know more about Folic Acid overdose, its usage, and where we can get it.

In a simple way, it is known as a substance inside the body which helps us to regenerate new healthy cells. This is an uplifting fact because we know that inside our body, due to our activities and the work the cells do, the old cells will eventually broke and disappear. The decrement of those cells is resulting performance reduction to your body. We will be weaken, limp, and unenergetic in our daily life. This is a condition where we need folacin to help us generates new cells that is needed by our body. Actually, it is a term assigned to this substance because it is made by man from its natural form, the Folate. Folate is the same substance as Folic Acid, but basically it is discovered naturally within our food. Yes, there is foods rich in folacin around us. So, why is it so important for us to know? The answer is because our body doesn’t use this substance’s natural form—the Folate—as quick as absorbing Folic Acid which is made by man.

Fact that we cannot easily use Folate forces us to use supplement. We need as much as 400mcg every day, at minimum. However, if we can’t afford buying supplement, we should just eat Folate as much as we can. As long as I can remember, there is foods with high folacin which we can easily grab in our environment. Foods with high amount of Folate among other things are broccoli, green peas, lettuce, cabbage, turnip, green peeper, walnuts, soya beans, cashew, cauliflower, etc. We need those vegetables to keep the balance of body’s cells to bring health to our life. That’s all about this.
