Four nutrients are helpful to prevent oral ulcers
Four nutrients are helpful to prevent oral ulcers. This small oral mucosal disease brings a lot of trouble to our lives, especially eating. According to our own experience, once there is an oral ulcer, no matter how delicious it is, it will be greatly reduced, and it is impossible to enjoy the food wholeheartedly.
If oral ulcers occur repeatedly, we suggest trying to supplement the following four types of nutrients, which may have a preventive effect on oral ulcers.
1. folic acid
Folic acid can help tissue growth. Together with vitamin B12 and vitamin C, it helps the body’s metabolism and produces new protein. Usually green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits and beans are rich in folic acid, such as spinach, asparagus, broccoli, papaya, orange, grapefruit And various beans.
2. Vitamin B6
Foods with high vitamin B6 content include turkey, pistachio, tuna, pinto beans, avocado, chicken breast, sesame and sunflower seeds. (Have a little bit of chicken on Thanksgiving)
3. Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin. Like other B vitamins, it plays a very important role in protein metabolism. Food sources of vitamin B12 include animal offal, shellfish (seafood), meat, eggs, milk and some nutritionally fortified oats.
Zinc can promote wound healing, has a certain effect on automatic debridement, prevention of infection and promotion of epithelial tissue growth. Oysters, beef and lamb, malt, spinach, pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts, cocoa powder, beans and mushrooms all contain high levels of zinc.
