Vitamin B9 (folic acid, folacin C19H19N7O6).
Your body uses folic acid to help make DNA and RNA and works with vitamin B12 to make red blood cells and use iron throughout the body. It’s nothing short of poetry for your brain – evidence suggests B vitamins like folic acid may have slower cognitive decline than other folks.

  • The general properties of Vitamin B9:
    • HERNáNDEZ-DíAZ, Sonia; et al. New England journal of medicine, 2000, 343.22: 1608-1614. PMID:11096168
      CONCLUSIONS: Folic acid antagonists, which include such common drugs as trimethoprim, triamterene, carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, and primidone, may increase the risk not only of neural-tube defects, but also of cardiovascular defects, oral clefts, and urinary tract defects. The folic acid component of multivitamins may reduce the risks of these defects.
    • HAIDER, Batool A.; BHUTTA, Zulfiqar A. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2017, 2017: 4. PMID:26522344
      CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support the effect of MMN supplements with iron and folic acid in improving birth outcomes. The findings, consistently observed in several systematic evaluations of evidence, provide a strong basis to guide the replacement of iron and folic acid with MMN supplements containing iron and folic acid for pregnant women in developing countries where MMN deficiencies are common among women of reproductive age. Efforts should be focused on the integration of this intervention in maternal nutrition and antenatal care programs in developing countries.

      CONCLUSIONS: Employing MPLSM, dermal changes occurring in photo-aged human skin were visualized in an unprecedented manner and correlated to a loss of firmness. Treatment of aged skin with a topical formulation containing folic acid and creatine counteracted this age-dependent decline by exerting sustained effects on collagen metabolism. Our results support previous findings on the efficacy of these actives.
