Folate is essential for the development of red blood cells in combination with cobalt, iron, manganese, vitamins B12 and C. Increased folate intake is vital during pregnancy; it is required for reproduction and in the formation of genetic cells such as DNA and RNA which cannot divide properly without folate. It is vital for the prevention of blood disorders such as cardiovascular disease, anaemia and poor circulation.
A folate deficiency may also contribute to childhood leukaemia.
Folate reduces the blood levels of harmful homocysteine and protects against such conditions as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. One report showed a fourfold increase in these ailments when folate levels were low and homocysteine levels were high.
Folate is destroyed by high temperatures, cooking and lengthy storage. Antibiotics, alcohol, the contraceptive pill and excess acids also reduce folate levels. Increased folate intake is required during periods of infection, mental fatigue, depression, insomnia and irritability.
