Yes, it may come as a total shock, but males also require folic acid, part of the water-soluble B vitamin family. It plays a primary role in the synthesis and repair of DNA and in producing red blood cells, which lowers the risk of anemia. Plus it may also help decrease your risk of colon cancer, prevent heart disease and stroke, and slow memory loss and macular degeneration. (Bonus: It might even keep your sperm healthy.)
