Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)

Folate is a water-soluble member of the Vitamin-B Complex that helps the body to synthesize DNA, to act as a cofactor in biological reactions,[1] and to help produce and maintain new cells.[2]

Both adults and children need Folate to make red and white blood cells and prevent anemia.[3] Folate deficiency may lead to large red blood cells that do not contain adequate hemoglobin the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen.[4]

A study of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome concluded some patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are Folic Acid deficient.[5]

In a study on Folic Acid supplementation, participants taking Folic Acid experienced a better change in memory, information processing speed and sensorimotor speed that those taking a placebo.[6]
