You probably heard the term folic acid before.¬† I became familiar with the term when I became pregnant with my first child years ago.¬† Folic Acid also called folate, apparently is critical for¬† regulating your mood. Also, good news,¬† studies have shown that low levels of this B vitamin in the blood are related to depression.¬† Of course if you experience¬† depression or blues on a regular basis, I advise that you seek your health practitioner or¬† doctor’s support.
However if you experience¬† moodiness or “funk”,¬† periodically, make sure that you¬† get your share of leafy greens. sunflower seeds,¬† beets, and oranges, to name a few ‚ÄĒ all of which are rich in folic acid ‚ÄĒ 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 of¬† liquid vs pills or capsules some time ago.
So if you are experiencing¬† issues with not feeling like your naturally optimistic self, folic acid just may be the answer you need.
To your excellent health!
Every morning without fail I reached for my 100 mg B complex to start my day…and whenever, I begin to feel moody or irritable for no good reason I rely on my B complex to get me back to my normal optimistic self.
Now with that said, I gotten additional insight into more mood regulating support.¬† It seems that folic acid, also called folate, reducing mood swings.¬† Studies have shown that low levels of this B vitamin in the blood are related to depression.¬†
Of course if you continually suffer from depression, you may need to see¬† your health practitioner.¬† However, if your moodiness is temporary, you may want to try to include leafy greens, sunflower seeds, beets, and oranges…which are all rich in folic acid.¬† A multivitamin that provides 100 percent of the daily value for folic acid may also be an option for you.
More importantly,¬† I know I don’t want to stay in the doles, so I’m looking to holistic options to get me back on track. Mother nature provides so much to maintain our health…thank you Mother…
