Folic acid is essential for the proper functioning of many systems in the body. How much should and if you want to help with dietary supplements.
Folic acid also called folate or vitamin B9 is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for the proper functioning of many systems in the body. The folic acid in food breaks down with digestive enzymes and only then can it be absorbed into the bloodstream from the digestive system. In fact, no more than 50% of the folic acid in the food is absorbed.
To maintain health, you should eat at least 5 servings of folic acid-rich foods every day, as well as the Western diet's poor composition.
What does folic acid do to us?
Assists in the proper production of red blood cells and reduce the level of homocysteine
Red blood cells that carry oxygen from the lungs to all body cells are constantly created and the adult ones are destroyed and secreted. When there is a deficiency of folic acid, the process of producing red blood cells is disrupted, leading to a deficiency in them and anemia.
Folic acid helps reduce the level of blood material called homocysteine, the excess of which has been linked to cardiovascular disease (especially in men). Increased folate intake may reduce this risk.
Studies also indicate that high levels of homocysteine increase the risk of Alzheimer's, cognitive (perceptual) problems, and dementia associated with old age. On the other hand, proper folic acid levels significantly reduce the risk.
The increase in the level of homocysteine due to a low level of folic acid in the diet significantly increases the risk of bone fractures and cracks in osteoporosis states (calcium escaping from the bones, called bone depletion).
Has an important role in the production of skin cells and cells lining the internal body cavities
The formation of short-lived cells, such as skin cells, intestinal cells, or cells lining the palate, is largely dependent on the presence of sufficient folate. For this reason, folic acid deficiency will cause gum problems and skin diseases such as seborrhea or lactation (loss of pigment that results in light skin appearance).
Contributes to the integrity of the nervous system
Folic acid deficiency has been linked to many nervous system problems, including mental weakness, dementia, depression, restlessness, forgetfulness, confusion and insomnia. This is probably due to the role of folate in maintaining the balance of the various molecules that transmit neuronal messages in the brain (neurotransmitters), many of which are contingent on the presence of folate.
Prevention of birth defects in the fetus
Folate deficiency in the mother during pregnancy is the most significant risk factor for giving birth to a baby with a cleft spine. It is unclear exactly how folic acid helps prevent the cleft spine but is likely to affect fetal development. It is estimated that taking enough folic acid before becoming pregnant and during pregnancy may prevent 7 out of 10 cases of neural tube (spinal cord) defects, including the cleft spine.
Reducing the risk of certain cancers and reducing alcohol withdrawal symptoms
Several types of cancer (esophagus, lung, uterus, colon) have been linked to folic acid deficiency. When a woman consumes alcohol regularly, she can reduce the risk of breast cancer by taking supplements containing folic acid.
Proper levels of folic acid may reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms and so people who are weaned are advised to raise their folic acid level. In many cases, 'heavy' alcohol consumers suffer from a folic acid deficiency.
Folic acid deficiency
What can cause folic acid deficiency?
Poor nutrition. Low-folic diet is the first cause of deficiency, and in this regard, we note that the Mediterranean diet is rich in folic acid
Vitamin 1B, 2B, 3B deficiency - can cause folic acid deficiency since these vitamins are involved in folic acid circulating in the body
Protein deficiency (in the diet) can be a cause of a deficiency of folate available to the body, as the proteins are needed to build up molecules that bind folate in the digestive system and thus enable its absorption. In addition, the lack of glycine and serine amino acids that are important for folic acid circulating in the body can result in its lower levels in the body.
Heavy alcohol consumption, heavy coffee consumption, and smoking will contribute to folic acid deficiency
