A study of 80,000 women for 14 years found that women who had higher intakes of dietary folate had a 55% lower risk of having heart attacks or fatal heart disease.
“Folic acid deficiency is the most common deficiency in the world.” Krause et al
“Patients treated with folic acid for 60 days showed a significant improvement in both memory and attention efficiency.” Fioravanti et al
“In an analysis of over 160 studies the omega 3 EFAs DHA and EPA along with ALA and folic acid emerged as significant dietary compounds to enhance learning and memory and prevent mental disorders.” Life Extension
“Folate supplementation of 800 mcg a day decreases colon cancer rates by 20 to 50%. The average intake of folate through food is only 275 to 375 mcg per day; so you need to supplement to reduce cancer risk.” Doctor Mehmet Oz
"I've seen folic acid reverse degenerative cellular damage in almost
every case of cervical dysplasia and colon lesions. I typically use 5 mg with
50,000 IU of vitamin A daily. It's nice to see the mainstream finally catching
up. Doctor Jay Rowen MD
"Doctor Koren said an analysis done several years ago by his research group showed that mothers of children born with cardiovascular, brain or limb malformations reported taking less folic acid in multivitamins than mothers whose children had no birth defects. We do know that adequate amounts of folic acid do promote cell division and processes that lead to normal development. Research has shown that 40 per cent of pregnant women in Ontario do not take enough folic acid to be protective. " Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, Note this one is simple, eat lots of raw fruit and vegetables and you will get folate galore
Should be EVERYTHING LOL.

"Folic acid may improve cardiovascular health and reduce the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Daily doses of 400 mcg of the B vitamin led to significant improvements in blood pressure and improved blood flow after 16 weeks of supplementation, according to results published in the British Journal of Surgery. Furthermore, equal doses of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the naturally circulating form of folate, produced the same results, leading the researchers to conclude that "5-MTHF may be a safe and effective alternative to folic acid." Swanson Vitamins
"Folate can protect against a dozen different cancers.1 Vegetables with the highest folate content are dark, leafy greens like spinach, kale and romaine lettuce. But, your body only absorbs half of the folate you consume, so taking a supplement is a very good idea. The supplement form of folate is folic acid. Most multivitamins contain folic acid. Check yours to make sure it has at least 400 mcg. You should be certain to take it if you've had cancer or are at risk.” Doctor Al Sears, Note IMO shoot for 1600 mcg/day as a supplement
"Beginning folic acid
supplementation before becoming pregnant was also associated with a 57%
reduction in the risk of low birth weight and a 60% reduction in the risk of a
baby that was small for gestational age (SGA), according to findings published
online in the British Journal of Nutrition.
The results add credibility to recommendations of a daily dose of 400 mcg for
women of childbearing age, starting before conception.
Benefits were recorded for women who started the
folic acid supplements after having their pregnancy confirmed, with an
association noted for a 39% reduction in the risk of low birth weight."
Acid and Neonate Birth Weight
“The mice supplemented with folic acid had a higher ratio of reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione. Reduced glutathione is your body's premier detoxifier and free radical scavenger. The researchers also found that folic acid participates in the all-important nitric oxide pathway. Nitric oxide is the chemical that dilates your arteries, keeping them healthy. And, finally, they said that folic acid helps regulate insulin and cellular stress responses.” Doctor Robert Rowen MD

can destroy up to 90 percent of the folate."

A U.S. National Institutes of Health-funded laboratory study suggests the B vitamin folate can promote healing in damaged rat spinal cord tissue. The investigation, led by University of Wisconsin-Madison Doctor Bermans Iskandar, an associate professor of neurosurgery, showed the nerve regeneration in the rats was triggered by a change in DNA. The researchers said the healing effects of the vitamin increased with the dosage, until regrowth of the damaged tissue reached a maximum level, after which it declined progressively with increasing doses until it reached the level seen in the absence of the vitamin.” Folate for Spinal cord Injury, Note so for optimal results you MUST find out what this optimum amount of folate is
"Essential for the integrity of the gingival tissues, higher dietary intake of folic acid is associated with less gingival bleeding on probing.72 Similar results occurred when added to mouthwash. In patients with gum disease, folic acid-containing mouthwash significantly reduced gingival redness and gum bleeding. ... Taking the B vitamin folic acid promotes gingival health by reducing redness and bleeding in these delicate tissues.14" Oral Health Prevents Systemic Disease Note you can get all the folate you will need by eating RAW vegetables and fruit; a folic acid mouthwash can help if you have oral disease of any type

"Folate is an essential ingredient when cells are

Since many older people do not eat fresh we may have found an important
piece of the cancer puzzle.

Folic Acid is NOT Folate
"Many individuals have a genetic defect that prevents them from producing the enzymes needed to convert synthetic folic acid into the active form of the B vitamin that our bodies need. This includes up to 44% of North American Caucasians and over 50% of Italians, and over 90% of patients who are predisposed to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and autism.” FDA’s Latest Attempt to Ban Folate in Supplements
"If the word folate sounds like foliage to you, this is not an accident. The words share a common root (the Latin word folium, meaning "leaf"), which helps remind us that green plant foods can be among the richest sources of folate. However, as the chart and table in this article show, there are outstanding sources of folate in other food groups as well (especially legumes)." WHF Folate
"Subjects whose folate levels were among the top 20% of participants had a 56% lower risk of developing chronic kidney disease over follow-up compared to those whose intake was among the lowest 20%. For those whose intake of vitamins B12, C, D and E were among the top fifth, the risk was lower by 43%, 62%, 61% and 55% respectively. Editor’s Note: Among minerals, an intake of magnesium that was among the top 20% was associated with a 59% lower risk of chronic kidney disease, and for the top intake of potassium, the risk was 53% lower." Greater Micronutrient Intake Associated with Lower Kidney Disease Risk
The terms Folic Acid and folate are often used interchangeably. Folic Acid is the synthetic form of the B vitamin found in supplements (See Supplement Protocol), folate is the form found in food. Try to get all your folate from food and supplement with folic acid when you must.
Folate is found in most FRESH food. If you are eating mostly fresh, unprocessed, uncooked food you should have no problem with getting an adequate amount of folate. Vitamins B1, B2, and B3 must be present in adequate amounts to enable folic acid to undergo metabolic recycling in the body. Folic acid deficiency can be caused by use of Depakote™, Tegretol™, aspirin, Pepcid®. Methotrexate, Dilantin™, Zantac®, oral contraceptives, and 21 other commonly used drugs.
Women who may become pregnant
(See Pregnancy Protection Protocol) need IMO to have ingested at least 2000 mcg
a day of folate for sometime at the moment of impregnation. This may prevent
several forms of deformities in your newly fertilized egg. Your husbands should have also
been getting large amounts of folate for three months before he impregnates you.
I would shoot for 3,000 - 4,000 mcg obtained mostly thru a diet of fresh raw
Folate deficiency can result in a buildup of homocysteine. The so-called requirements for Folate have grown from 200 mcg when I was a kid to 800 mcg in mainstream medicine now. The Independent Vitamin Safety Review Panel currently recommends 2000mcg or 2mg of Folic Acid a day. http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v03n10.shtml
Since the common Folic Acid supplement is often sold as an 800-mcg capsule I extend my RDA (See RDA Protocol) to 1600 mcg. Eating fresh food will more than make up the remaining 400 mcg. If you are eating mostly fresh, unprocessed, uncooked food you should have no problem with getting an adequate amount of folate and will not need to supplement often.

found eating unaltered, raw food or food heated at low temperatures did not
cause increased leukocytes. In addition, if a food had been heated beyond a
certain temperature (unique to each food), or if the food was processed
(refined, added chemicals, etc.), this always caused leukocytosis. The foods
causing the greatest leukocytosis, were processed foods that had been
refined, homogenized, pasteurized, or chemically preserved."

Any time you COOK ANYTHING you breakdown fiber (prebiotics); kill bacteria
(probiotics); hasten the digestive process, hasten the release of sugars into
your blood stream and decrease the probiotic and prebiotic potential of that
food. SO eat RAW as often as possible. Eating something raw with any cooked food
is also a good idea.

Who may need more Folate per day?
Always get your Vitamin B Complex with any individual B Vitamin
"The B vitamins are all inter-dependant. Each one affects the absorption, metabolism and excretion of the other B vitamins." Doctor Anthony Cichoke
First of course always try to get ALL your B complex vitamins in FOOD. RAW Green leafy vegetables are IMO the best way.
Always also assure the
complex vitamins when you take an individual B vitamin. This is because many of
the B vitamins require one or more of the other B vitamins to be utilized by
your body so a shortage of any B vitamin can affect all B vitamins. I try to
assure my B
complex most days together with 1600 micro grams of Folic Folic Acid and 5 mg of
. This is insurance, VERY cheap insurance.
The best way to do this is a very large salad with lots of raw GREEN LEAFY
