Folic acid is important for healthy brain function, playing a critical role in mental and emotional health. It helps in the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material. It’s especially important when cells and tissues are growing rapidly, such as in infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy. Folic acid also works closely with vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and help iron work properly in the body.
Vitamin B9 works with vitamins B6 and B12 to control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine. High levels of homocysteine are associated with heart disease. However, researchers are unclear as to whether homocysteine is a cause of heart disease or just a marker that indicates someone may have heart disease.
It’s common to have low levels of folic acid when coping with Alcoholism, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and certain medications. Lack of Folic acid can cause poor growth, tongue inflammation, gingivitis, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, diarrhea, irritability, forgetfulness, and mental sluggishness.
Pregnant women need more folic acid to lower the risk of neural tube birth defects. Neural tube defects are birth defects caused by abnormal development of the neural tube, a structure that eventually gives rise to the brain and spinal cord, which includes cleft palate, spina bifida and brain damage.
