is an essential B Vitamin. In eleven trials they found that Folic Acid
supplementation showed evidence of a lower risk of a stroke. In these
eleven trials, there were a total of 65,790 cardiovascular disease
Some patients received Folic Acid in their daily regiment while other
patients received a placebo or their usual care without Folic Acid. The
Folic Acid patients were given 0.5 mg to 5 mg daily for periods of 12 to 87
months. 2,826 stroke events were reported during this period.
After reviewing all the data from all the participants, it was determined
that those who received the Folic Acid had a 10% lower risk of stroke than
those who didn’t take the Folic Acid.
As a special note: When you combine Folic Acid with Vitamin B6 and Vitamin
B12 it helps lower the levels of the toxic amino acid, homocysteine, which
is associated with greater cardiovascular risks. Patients (both men and
women) who lowered their homocysteine by least 25% with Folic Acid
supplements had a 15% decrease in stroke risks.
