I read some time ago that registered alcoholics (alcohol dependent in the pc world) had b12 injections as alcohol destroys b12 in the liver. The other day, I read that folate is wiped out by excessive alcohol intake.
Is it the case that both b12 and folate are affected by alcohol intake and, is it advisable to avoid alcohol altogether if one is either b12 and b9 deficient?
Also, lack of stomach acid prevents the inculcation of b12 is this also the case with folate? If it is, should we supplement folate with folic acid as a matter of course?
