We love lentils! Did you know lentils are a powerful brain food that may help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease?
Not only are lentils yummy and packed full of dietary fiber, but lentils are full of Foliate.
A preliminary study shows that Foliate (Folic Acid or Vitamin B9, used by the body to produce energy, red blood & white blood cells) helps prevent Alzheimer. Furthermore, an American medical study shows that as the levels of foliate decreases, the risk of Alzheimer increases. This may be due to the fact that Foliate combined with B12 help reduce an amino acid called Homocysteine. High levels of Homocysteine are associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Let the lentil love begin!
