SUPERFOOD // NUTRITIONAL YEAST:

B-vitamins, specifically  B6, B12 and folate, have been studied (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4772032/) for their role in lowering homocysteine levels in the blood.  Homocysteine is an amino acid, but elevated levels have been linked to dementia (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12849121), heart disease and stroke (https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/in_brief_b_vitamins_and_homocysteine).

These are all complex health issues with many causes and that require the care of a doctor. But, eating more plant based foods that are rich in B-vitamins, can only help support your overall health!  We hope that you’ll love this pesto recipe as much as we do.
