The goodness of Folic Acid for your Heart

13 Aug

Living With Heart Disease: Everyday Tips A Heart-Friendly Vitamin Folic acid isn’t just good for developing babies — it’s also good for your heart.  Some studies show that folic acid might help protect your heart. Here are some tips to make sure you’re getting the right amount: Take a daily vitamin that has folic acid in it. Most multivitamins sold in the U.S. have 100 percent of what you need. Eat a serving of breakfast cereal that contains 100% of the daily value (DV) for folic acid each day. Check the label on the box to be sure it has enough.

Eat a healthy diet that contains lots of fruits and vegetables and other foods that have folic acid (or folate) in them or added to them, such as broccoli, asparagus, bananas, oranges, peas, nuts, spaghetti and bread.
