At Neuro Health, we carefully choose each ingredient that goes into our products based on its ability to improve neuropathy symptoms. Each ingredient has a purpose, and this includes folic acid. Also known as Vitamin B9, folic acid supplementation can lead to improved functioning of the nerves. In fact, many people with neuropathy have insufficient folate in their bloodstream.
Let’s learn more about folic acid, how it can promote good nerve health and why this ingredient is contained in our Neuropathy Support Formula.
What is Folic Acid?
Folic acid is a B vitamin that helps the body make new cells. Everyone needs folic acid. For women who are pregnant, this vitamin is especially important, as it can help prevent major birth defects of the brain and spine. You can get folic acid from certain foods, such as dark, leafy greens, fruits, dried beans and enriched breads and cereals.
If you don’t get enough folic acid from the foods you eat, you may need to take a supplement. The recommended daily amount of folic acid to take each day is 400 micrograms, though neuropathy patients may be prescribed 800 micrograms daily. Folate is the natural form of Vitamin B9 in food, whereas folic acid is the synthetic form.
Signs that you may not be getting enough folic acid are:
- Lack of energy
- Feeling faint
- Pale skin
- Heart palpitations
- Loss of appetite
- Pins and needles
How Folic Acid Can Support Nerve Health
If you have peripheral neuropathy, your doctor may recommend taking various supplements to support good nerve health. Folic acid is one of them, as it can lead to improved functioning of the nerves. It’s also involved in cell division and tissue growth, helping your body grow healthy cells that turn food into energy.
Furthermore, new research has shown that folic acid contributes to peripheral nerve injury repair by promoting the proliferation and migration of Schwann cells and the secretion of nerve growth factors. This research concludes that folic acid is an inexpensive and stable method of neuropathy therapy.
