SISU Folic Acid - 90 Caps
Folic acid (vitamin B9) is an essential nutrient that helps the body take new cells and helps protect DNA from damage. Folic acid helps to decrease and normalize the homocysteine levels in our body. Increased homocysteine levels are associated with the build-up of plaques in the artery walls (atherosclerosis), which can lead to heart disease or stroke. Folic acid deficiency is linked to complications in pregnancies, neurological disorders, and osteoporosis. Adequate folic acid levels are also associated with a reduced risk of developing certain cancers. Folic acid is found in green leafy vegetables, beans, asparagus, nuts, and enriched grains and cereals, but can be diminished during storage, preparation, and cooking. Supplementation is recommended particularly for people who suffer from degenerative diseases, bowel or kidney diseases, and for women of child-bearing years.
