Folic Acid (also known as folate or folacin) is an important member of the B vitamin complex. As Folic Acid is the vitamin most commonly deficient in human diets, supplementation is vital to maintaining health.
Folic Acid is also beneficial in reducing the concentration of homocysteine in the body. High homocysteine levels have been cited as a factor in the development of arteriosclerosis and osteoporosis. Homocysteine causes arteriosclerosis by weakening the walls of blood vessels.
