The fat lady didn’t quite hit that high note. But a recent study produced enough evidence to prove folic acid an inexpensive way to reduce coronary disease.
This study examined the evidence from several studies, to verify whether increased homocysteine level in the blood is a cause of heart disease. Homocysteine is an amino acid associated with arterial disease.
Since folic acid reduces homocysteine levels, therefore increased folic acid intake may reduce the risk of coronary disease and stroke.
