(NaturalNews) Some things boil down pretty simply and thanks to, we have greater access than ever to the plain truth as validated by science.

A simple search for folate (vitamin B9) on yields several interesting studies that have been done to understand this vital nutrient. One study in particular discovered that folate deficiency correlates with lower overall intelligence.

Got folate?

If not, then you may be prone to lower intelligence, higher depression, lower coordination and poor memory.

If you lack the vitamin folate, then you are denying your brain what it needs. Over the long haul, some researchers suggest than can lead to greater occurrence of dementia.

Sources of folate

Folate can be found in romaine lettuce, spinach, asparagus, turnip greens, mustard greens, calf's liver, parsley, collard greens, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, and lentils.

Other good sources of folate include: summer squash, black beans, navy beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans, papaya, strawberries, green beans sea vegetables, cabbage, bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, leeks, fennel, tomatoes, and green peas.

You can supplement folate, too, but beware that many people suffer a genetic mutation that blocks folate absorption. Dr. Wes Youngberg explains in the July 10, 2013 episode of Mental Health Exposed that a significant portion of the population cannot absorb conventional folate supplements due to genetic factors, and must take a methylated form of folate instead.

Listen to Dr. Youngberg's explanation to learn more - it is critical if you have a need to supplement folate into your diet.

Lack of other B vitamins can also interfere with folate absorption, so make sure you balance your intake.

If you feel that you are not cognitively up to snuff, then look into folate!

Amazingly, many people who understand the need for optimal nutrition still don't follow through and give their body what it needs.

In this case, you may be more comfortable being depressed and foggy than bright and happy. This is a psychological issue - known as an attachment. Negative attachments prevent you from doing what you know you should do for your health.
