This study was conducted to provide the first age-specific data in elderly women (60-85 y) from a controlled metabolic study on which to base folate intake recommendations. Subjects (n = 33) consumed a moderately folate-deplete (118 microg/d) diet for 7 wk, followed by repletion diets providing either 200 or 415 microg folate/d as diet plus folic acid (FA… CONTINUE READING
