Homocysteine, Folic Acid and Cardiovascular
Folic Acid is a member of the B-Complex vitamin family (vitamin B-9). While there is no hard evidence that folic acid supplementation prevents strokes or heart attacks, studies seem to show that it may lower homocysteine levels in the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid. High levels of it seem to be related to higher risk of heart disease, stroke and vascular disease.
