Green vegetables are literally food as medicine for celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease (crohns, colitis). As folate, or vitamin B9, is a typical nutrient that is malabsorbed with these inflammatory diseases. For those following a gluten free diet, be aware that gluten free foods are not fortified with folate as compared to their gluten filled counterparts. This makes those following a gluten free diet more prone to developing a folate deficiency.
