Potatoes are an excellent source of B6, a vitamin which is essential for the formation of almost every new cell in the body. Vitamin B6 also is a vital component for the neurological system and for the creation of amines which are neurotransmitters that send messages from one nerve to the next. This makes potatoes an important food for those who are heavy thinkers and those recovering from stress damage and adrenal exhaustion. They are also particularly beneficial for depression, insomnia, sleep disorders, brain fog, and stress related illnesses. Potatoes are also known to be good for promoting cardiovascular health and are highly beneficial for reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis, and COPD.
Green peas are one of the most nutritious of the leguminous vegetables and are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and manganese. They are a great source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). These essential fatty acids makes green peas an ideal food for brain and cardiovascular health and their phytosterols are vital for helping to lower cholesterol levels in the body.
