The effect of sprouting on the folate concentration of legumes is incredible. It peaks on the fourth day of sprouting, though, according to a recent study. But is it always the fourth day in every legume under any condition sprouted in a home kitchen? Are the sprouted legumes on the store shelf four-day sprouts? Right now there are more questions than answers, but I believe that opting for sprouted legumes is a good way to supercharge your folate status as long as you still make an effort to get 2-3 servings of folate-rich foods per day.
I cover this and another way to supercharge your folate status — eating egg yolks from pasture-raised chickens — in today’s Chris Masterjohn Lite video.

Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.
To get these episodes free of ads, with transcripts, and weeks or sometimes even months before they are released to the public, along with access to monthly live Q&A sessions, sign up for the CMJ Masterpass at https://chrismasterjohnphd.
