folicacids

Everybody knows that folic acid is an essential nutrient for health. Here is a list of foods with folic acid. Add these to your diet for a nutritious snack.

I recently saw a post from a nutritionist that stated,

"This may seem like a random question but it may have merit !! Could you please answer a simple yes or no to this question. Does your urine smell after you eat asparagus ?
The reason why I am asking, is it could be an indication of a b9(folic acid ) deficiency. There is some scientific discussion that states that the smell is related to this b9 issue possibly pointing to a polymorphism in the MTHFR gene.”

I have not ever heard of this but if you are someone concerned about your levels and curious if there are any plants that could aid in this area, you will really like this article regarding 15 foods high in Folic Acid (Folate/B9).

**Coincidentally, Asparagus is #2 … So I wouldn’t get too concerned. ;)

Also, check out these articles to better understand why only some of us smell the odor from our urine, after eating the grand stalks of Asparagi. lol.
