This simple spinach smoothie is one for the girls: it contains about 290µg folic acid. Because of our processed lifestyle, both men and women tend to lack this B-vitamin, which does not like heat or being otherwise processed.
What's more, taking folic acid before and during pregnancy can prevent arthritis and protect congenital malformations and neural tube defects. The RDA for folic acid is 200-400µg per day. Thus, this simple spinach smoothie gives you all the folic acid you need for the day. For all of you girls with menstrual cramps, folic acid helps with this! This simple spinach smoothie is also really really easy to make. It tastes just as delicious with or without the addition of mango. The simple spinach smoothie is one of the cheapest, simplest and one of the yummiest smoothies you’ll ever try.
