Have allergies? Try beans!

Are you suffering from allergies or asthma?

Research from John Hopkins School of Medicine says that beans may be your answer! You could be low in folate and scientists examined the medical records of over 8,000 participants in a natural health and nutrition survey. They found that if you were low in the B vitamin folate you had a 40% more chance of wheezing and 31% more risk for allergies. People lacking folate had higher levels of immunoglobulin E antibodies, which is what your body makes when it detects a foreign invader such as an allergen. The more you create, the more likely you are to have allergies because it creates more histamines that cause allergy symptoms.

How can you get more folate into your diet? Eat some beans! Beans are an awesome source of folate. Eat them in chili, spread them on toast, have some lentil soup, make a bean dip out of pinto beans and hot sauce.
