Clinical Study Title:
Importance of both folic acid and vitamin B12 in reduction of risk of vascular disease.
|Plain English Summary:|
|The use of folate and vitamin b12 on homocysteine levels was examined in adults. A total of 53 adults were enrolled in the study. Measures of homocysteine levels were taken for all participants. Analysis confirmed that the vitamin b12 had the most effect on reduction of homocysteine levels. This suggests that a supplement should have vitamin b12 in addition to folate to help reduce the homocysteine levels of the blood. This will help further decrease the risk of heart disease.|
