When it comes to RLS symptoms, did you know that folic acid plays a big roll in how severe your symptoms may be? I didn’t either but in this article we will both dive in together and figure out how to track your folic acid intake, what the consequences may be for taking or producing too much and finally what degree of production and intake would make you feel ill.
So what in fact is Folic Acid? It is essentially a vitamin or supplement used to fight against anemia and mainly taken by women who are pregnant in order to keep the hormones somewhat in check. Anemia is the process in which the body does not produce enough red blood cells and has a count well below the average amounts. What is also interesting about this water soluble vitamin is that is commonly referred to as vitamin B9, that is meant to refer it to being a complex vitamin associated with red blood cells.
Now these are not to be confused with prenatal vitamins as most often you will need a prescription from a physician to receive the folic acid. These are very powerful vitamins so even if you should happen to miss a day it is not recommended that you take a double dose the next day. Make sure to also get the correct information when it comes to how this may effect your usual dietary habits. In a recent article scientists and members of the FDA or Federal Drug Administration have inched closer to the conclusion that tortillas may be a notable source for naturally consuming folate.
It has been said that not only is folic acid good for first term pregnancy mothers and also the child but it is in fact good for a restless leg syndrome sufferer. Having a deficiency in vitamins can seriously damage ones body so as we discussed in our vitamin article. In closing with this particular article it is duly advised that you should consult your doctor before making rash decisions. Remember this site can be informational and at times funny but remember this and any perceived health related information is for entertainment purposes only. What we do like to promote is natural and less invasive ways of healing. Meditation and healthy eating will take you a long way and by not taking pills you are helping out your internal organs that have to work so hard to process those items working through your system.
Let me tell a little story. When I was younger, let’s say around 35 I had a tough battle with eating fatty foods a little to often. My body was out of shape and I would literally become short of breath with only a small exertion of energy, such as jogging for 5 seconds. When I finally had enough and playing with my children became to hard for me to handle I decided I was going to get myself into greater shape. I wanted fast results so like many other people I knew I began to take supplements that where in fact more damaging to my body than the nasty food I was placing in front of me.
As the pounds began to fall and my outer appearance began to get greater I started to notice a pain in my lower back. This was a sharp pain at times when I would bend over and a dull pain through out the day.This lasted for around 3 months until I began to do a lot of research on the subject. I was searching around the web and I found something out something interesting. My search terms were “sore back not from working out.”
Eventually I came to the heart wrenching determination that it in fact wasn’t my muscles that were sore but it was my kidney’s. You see my kidneys had been working overtime as well as the rest of my internal organs to process all those synthetic supplements that I had been ingesting daily. This is one of the main reasons for this site pushing a natural healing agenda and why you see those products on the site.
In conclusion for real now I hope that this site eventually helps at least one person and they can forward some helpful information to those in need.
