Globulin is a serum protein that is found in blood. There are four different types of globulin: alpha-1 globulins, alpha-2 globulins, beta globulin and gamma globulin. If any one of these types of globulin is decreased, health problems may occur. In some cases, globulins can be increased through a diet that includes high protein foods that are globulin rich.
Hemp seeds are very nutritious. Not only do they contain a high level of globulin, but they also have omega fatty acids, vitamin E, zinc, iron and magnesium. Hemp seeds can be eaten plain, baked in bread or muffins, put in cereal or granola or sprinkled on salads.
The soybean is a legume that is well known for its nutritional benefits. Soy is rich in fiber, vitamin E, zinc, iron and fatty acids among other nutrients. Soy is also versatile and consumed in a variety of ways. Soy milk, tofu, tempeh, soy ice cream and soy cheese are just some of the ways you can eat soy for globulin.
Certain types of seafood are high in globulin, including iron-rich seafood such as oysters, sardines and shrimp.
Red meat is a food that is protein and globulin rich. Red meats include beef, lamb, venison and bison.
Dried Fruits and Vegetables
You can also get globulin by eating dried apricots, prunes, raisins or peas. Dried fruits and vegetables are also rich in vitamins and other nutrients and low in fat.
Leafy Green Vegetables
Dark leafy greens are a source of globulin. All dark leafy greens will provide globulin when consumed, but mustard greens, kale and spinach are particularly globulin rich. They are also extremely nutrient rich and particularly high in vitamins A and C.
Whole grains are a source of globulin, including whole grain breads and cereals. Whole grains are also a source of fiber and iron.
Eggs are a source of globulin. Eggs are also rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E, D, K, B6 and B12, calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamine, magnesium, sodium, niacin, copper, manganese, selenium, potassium and riboflavin.
