Folic acid is important for the conversion of the amino acid methionine to cysteine. If this vitamin is deficient, or if a defect exists in the enzymes responsible for this conversion, there will be increased levels of homocysteine, which is an amino acid by-product that builds up in the body, damaging the lining of the blood vessel and harming the cardiovascular system.
By regulating the body’s production and use of this harmful compound, folic acid can prevent this build-up from occurring. Folic acid also helps prevent neural tube defects when taken prenatally and and during early pregnancy.
