Vitamin B-9 (Folate)

Vitamin B-9, also known as Folate, is one of a group of 8 water-soluble B-vitamins. Folate cannot be produced in the body and any excess is excreted quickly, so it must be supplied through diet and/or supplements regularly. B-9 is best taken in combination with other B-vitamins, especially B-6 and B-12.

Folate is involved in the process of methylation, which is essential to DNA and RNA repair, neurotransmitter and homocysteine metabolism. It is also directly linked to spinal development in the very early (germinal) stages of prenatal development and may help prevent the occurrence of birth defects like NTDs and Cleft Lip/Pallet. *

Food Sources: beef liver, spinach, asparagus, avocado, brussels sprouts

Benefits*: Brain Function, DNA/RNA Repair, Fetal Development

Works Best With*: Other B-vitamins (especially B-6 and B-12) and Iron
