GLOSSARY
FOLATE (FOLIC ACID)

Folate (Folic acid)

 

How does it work?

Folate, commonly referred to as folic acid or vitamin B9, is an essential nutrient and part of the B-vitamin family.1 It is involved in many reactions for the metabolism of amino acids and nucleic acids, particularly in DNA and RNA synthesis.2 It is considered a methyl donor for neurotransmitter synthesis and homocysteine catabolism, therefore has importance in psychiatric illness and cardiovascular disease, respectively.3

What results can be expected?

Folate supplementation may assist in preventing deficiency states where there is an increased rate of growth such as pregnancy.4 In combination with vitamins B12 and B6, folate has also shown to assist in lowering homocysteine levels and is an adjunct treatment for depression.5
