1. the combination of vitamin B12 and folic acid

The human organism depends on many vitamins, minerals and trace elements. These should be taken in daily through a healthy diet. However, there are vitamins for which the supply becomes increasingly difficult in old age. These include vitamin B12 and folic acid. Vitamin improves the effect of folic acid, therefore ensures a better activation of folic acid and promotes the reduction of homocysteine. The combination of vitamin B12 and folic acid is essential for many tasks.

2 The daily requirement of folic acid

The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of 400 micrograms of folic acid for an adult. People who consume larger amounts of alcohol have a higher requirement for folic acid. For women who wish to have children, nursing mothers or pregnant women, the recommended intake of folic acid is 800 micrograms per day. Dosage and daily requirement may vary in certain life situations such as pregnancy and breastfeeding or during heavy physical exertion.
