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.
Folic Acid – Lower Stroke Risks in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease Study Finds.
Folic Acid is a synthetic form of folate. Folate 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 patients.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.
