Folic Acid – One of the most underrated vitamins.

Folic acid has to be one of the most underrated vitamins around. How many of us have heard of it, let alone know anything about it. But hardly a month goes by without some report appearing on the benefits of folic acid.

>B12 – Folic Acid, and Hearing Loss

Insufficient amounts of vitamin B12 or folic acid may cause hearing loss in elderly women, according to a study in the March 1999 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Research at the University of Georgia studied hearing function, together with blood levels of vitamin B12 and folate in 55 healthy women ages 60 to 71. Women with impaired hearing had 38 percent lower levels of vitamin B12 and 31 percent lower levels of folate than women with normal hearing.

These two nutrients are key to maintaining efficient blood flow and nervous system function, according to researchers.
A high daily intake of folic acid may reduce breast cancer risk among women who regularly consume alcoholic beverages.

Research published in the May 5 1999 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association discussed the value of high (at least 400 micrograms/day) intakes of folic acid. This level may protect against certain fetal birth defects, cardiovascular disease, and colorectal cancer. In the report, it is noted that the Recommended Dietary Allowance for folate was recently increased from 180 micrograms/day to 400 micrograms/day. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration recently mandated that all grain products sold in the US be fortified with folic acid.

To determine the nutrient’s effect on risks for breast cancer, the authors examined data from over 88,000 women involved in the ongoing Nurses’ Health Study. Among the group as a whole, folate intake was not associated with overall risk of breast cancer. However, among regular, moderate drinkers (those who consumed 15 grams of alcohol per day which is about a glass and a half of beer or wine) women with the highest daily intake of folic acid (600 micrograms/day) were at a 45% lower risk for breast cancer compared with women with the lowest folate intake (150-299 micrograms/day).
According to previous research, a woman’s lifetime risk for breast cancer rises 9% with every 10 gram/day increase in alcohol consumption.
The report concludes that the excess risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption may be reduced by ensuring adequate folate intake.

VitaMist Folacin – A Product for Everyone.

Folic acid has to be one of the most underrated vitamins around. How many of us have heard of it, let alone know anything about it. But why? Not a month goes by without some report appearing on the benefits of folic acid. Not only that, but recently these reports have stressed the additional benefits of vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 when used in combination with folic acid. Many of these articles have associated folic acid with a reduced risk of colon cancer and cardiovascular disease, and, in combination with vitamin B12, folic acid may have a connection to Alzheimer’s disease.

As long ago as 1992, the US Public Health Service recommended that all women of childbearing age who could potentially become pregnant should take 400 mcg of folic acid every day, either through diet or supplementation. Adequate amounts of folic acid reduce the occurrence of birth defects, such as spina bifida, which affects the spine and spinal cord, and anencephaly, a lethal disorder affecting the brain and skull.

Then in 1996, the FDA, a division of the US Department of Health and Human Services authorized the use on labels and in the labeling of food, including dietary supplements, of health claims on the association between adequate intake of folate and the risk of neural tube birth defects. This was followed in 1997 by mandatory addition of folic acid to all enriched cereal grains.

Perhaps the most exciting development has been the relationship between homocysteine levels (associated with risk factors in heart disease) and folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. For example, a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that intake of folic acid and vitamin B6 may be important in the prevention of coronary heart disease among women. The evidence is so strong that the American Heart Association has issued an advisory suggesting that those with a history of heart disease make sure that they consume the RDA of vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folic acid.
Is there a downside? NO! All the current evidence suggests that there is no danger of consuming too much folic acid.
