Folate, homocysteine, and cardiovascular health
Folate helps maintain healthy levels of homocysteine already within normal limits. By helping to inhibit excess homocysteine, folate supports healthy levels of this important biomarker for cardiovascular health.

Because people with elevated homocysteine levels have a higher risk of cognitive decline, taking enough folate is especially crucial for aging individuals trying to maintain cognitive health.
