Folic Acid Supplment

Post  forumtester on Tue May 08, 2018 3:27 pm

Folic acid supplement can be prescribed for the following:

- Age-related vision loss (age-related macular degeneration). Some research shows that taking folic acid with other vitamins including vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 reduces the risk of developing age-related vision loss.

- Depression. Limited research suggests that taking folic acid along with antidepressants seems to improve symptoms in people with depression.

- High blood pressure. Research suggests that taking folic acid daily for at least 6 weeks reduces blood pressure in people with high blood pressure. However, taking folic acid with blood pressure medication does not seem to lower blood pressure any more than taking just the medication alone.

- Gum problems due to a drug called phenytoin. Applying folic acid to the gums seems to prevent gum problems caused by phenytoin. However, taking folic acid by mouth does not seem to improve symptoms of this condition.

- Gum disease during pregnancy. Applying folic acid to the gums seems to improve gum disease during pregnancy.

- A skin discoloration disorder called vitiligo. Taking folic acid by mouth seems to improve symptoms of vitiligo.
