The folate cycle needs a strong light/dark cycle to function in it’s happy, circadian way (and the folate cycle in turn supports overall circadian epigenetic functioning)
Folate is part of at least 6 major processes that each need nutritional cofactors in addition to folate to complete their processes
The rest of this post will be about the necessary nutritional cofactors for folate to do it's work in the body. And then, stay …
