You probably heard the term folic acid before.Â I became familiar with the term when I became pregnant with my first child years ago.Â Folic Acid also called folate, apparently is critical forÂ regulating your mood. Also, good news,Â studies have shown that low levels of this B vitamin in the blood are related to depression.Â Of course if you experienceÂ depression or blues on a regular basis, I advise that you seek your health practitioner orÂ doctor’s support.
However if you experienceÂ moodiness or “funk”,Â periodically, make sure that youÂ get your share of leafy greens. sunflower seeds,Â beets, and oranges, to name a few â€” all of which are rich in folic acid â€” into your diet. Keep in mind that a good multivitamin provides 100 percent of the daily value for folic acid. Regarding multivitamins I wrote an article on the advantage ofÂ liquid vs pills or capsules some time ago.
So if you are experiencingÂ issues with not feeling like your naturally optimistic self, folic acid just may be the answer you need.

Omega-3 can be used to treat symptoms for menopausal woman and provide natural hot flash relief, according to Mayo Clinic.com.Â Â Iâ€™ve also learned that omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that our body needs in order to perform a variety of physiologic activities (that is the physical inner working of the body).
Our body needs omega-3 fatty acids to function, but is unable to synthesize them. . So our body must obtain the omega-3 fatty acids from our diet or from supplements.
So here is a brief list of some foods:
Sardines:Â Ounce for ounce sardines contain just as much heart-healthy omega3-fat as salmon.Â According to what Iâ€™ve learned sardines are very low in contaminants, eco-friendly, packed with high-quality protein and of course exceedingly affordable.Â
Not that I recommend canned foods but if you buy canned sardines with the bones weâ€™ll get a huge dose of calcium as well.
Fish:Â Fish naturally contain omega-3 fatty acids, and cold water fish such as salmon have even higher concentrations of the healthy fat. For what Iâ€™ve learned at least two servings per week are recommended.Â Also research has shown the omega-3â€™s lower cholesterol and decreased risk of heart disease with continued use.
Plants: Many plants contain omega-3 fatty acids, particularly green and leafy plants such as collard greens and spinach and are an easy source of omega-3 dietary needs. Â Itâ€™s great to know that these foods are inexpensive to accessible and can provide you with natural hot flash relief.
To Your Excellent Health!
