Sprouts are a methylation factory and a brain superfood
Dried legumes such as chickpeas, lentils and white beans have the highest folate concentration of any food, however, it is mainly in the non-methylated form. Sprouting legumes for 4 days causes a big increase (3 to 4 times increase) in total folate, plus a near-complete conversion of the folate to L-methylfolate, and an increase in vitamin C content that protects the 5-MTHF.
Eating legumes sprouted for 4 days is the most powerful way to increase your body’s intake of L-methylfolate (and cheaper than 5-MTHF supplementation). Vitamin C in foods protects folate from breaking down and foods with both folate and vitamin C (such as broccoli and citrus) are super sources of L-methylfolate. If you have MTHFR gene mutations, as seen in a blood test, eating fresh folate-rich foods every day becomes critically important. Eating sprouts can increase your intake of activated folate. This is essential to make neurotransmitters to improve moods and memory. It can also boost energy.
