VITAMIN B 9
Folic acid is a synthetic vitamin that is useful in fortified foods and supplements. Folic acid is a human-made version of folate, which occurs naturally as a B vitamin in various foods. The body system can’t make folate. Hence, it should be obtained via dietary intake. Folic acid may help improve blood sugar control, reduce insulin resistance, and enhance cardiovascular function in individuals with diabetes.
Folic acid helps reduce inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome and children with epilepsy can benefit from taking folic-based supplements. Folic acid powder supports many important functions in the human body and is an important part of prenatal supplements. Folic acid powder also helps support cardiovascular health and may even help maintain healthy mood and support brain function.
Folic acid works with vitamins B-6 and B-12 to control high levels of homocysteine in the blood. Elevated homocysteine levels might increase your risk of diseases of the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular disease).
As a dietary supplement, take 480 mcg once daily, or as directed by a physician. Use an accurate microgram scale to measure.
