Life Extension Folic Acid & Vitamin B12 Caps, 200 caps


Folic acid (folate) is a member of the B-complex family. Found in abundance in leafy green vegetables, folic acid participates in a coenzyme reaction that synthesizes DNA needed for cell growth and new cell formation, and helps convert vitamin B12 to one of its coenzyme forms.

Folic acid provides the following health benefits:

  • Helps promote healthy DNA function

  • Maintains already normal homocysteine levels, which is important for heart health

  • Participates in the utilization of sugar and carbohydrates

  • Promotes healthier skin

  • Helps maintain a healthy GI tract

  • Maintains healthy endothelial function

  • Improves mild memory loss associated with aging

Optimal levels of folate are necessary for healthy cell division and protein synthesis and are especially important for the maintenance of a healthy GI tract.

The systemic need for folate increases in certain states in which increased cell multiplication is needed.

Chronic use of medications such as aspirin and antacids can interfere with the natural synthesis of folate.
