THis week is National Folic Acid Awareness Week....not only is Folic Acid critical for brain development of the unborn baby, but so important for our health as we age. Folic Acid is the synthetic form of this B9 Vitamin, Folate is the Natural Form. I have been having elevated homocysteine levels and finding that I need more Folic Acid aka Folate. I'm taking a Cardio B product with 5mg of Folic Acid for now. I'm going to go to another Homocysteine formula which contains 800mcg of Folate.... Folic Acid is critical for mood, energy, brain health and much more... Folic Acid is in some foods, but like with all our foods, we need to take a lot to get the nutrients we need and oftentimes we don't eat foods that are best.
