Folate + Vit B12
importance of the B vitamins folate and vitamin B12 for healthy neurological
development and function is unquestioned. Folate and vitamin B12 are required
for biological methylation and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 also participates in
the mitochondrial catabolism of odd-chain fatty acids and some amino acids .
Inborn errors of their metabolism and severe nutritional deficiencies cause
serious neurological and hematological pathology. Poor folate and vitamin B12
status short of clinical deficiency is associated with increased risk of
cognitive impairment , depression , Alzheimer’s disease and stroke among older
adults and increased risk of neural tube defects among children born to mothers
with low folate status . Folate supplementation and food fortification are known
to reduce incident neural tube defects, and B vitamin supplementation may have
cognitive benefit in older adults. Less is known about folate and vitamin B12
requirements for optimal brain development and long-term cognitive health in
newborns, children and adolescents. While increasing suboptimal nutritional
status has observed benefits, the long-term effects of high folate intake are
uncertain. Several observations of unfavorable health indicators in children
and adults exposed to high folic acid intake make it imperative to achieve a
more precise definition of folate and B12 requirements for brain development
and function .
