Folic Acid (Also known as Folate or Vitamin B9) is a B vitamin that plays a role in the production and maintenance of new cells. Folic acid
cannot be synthesized by the body and is therefore an "essential vitamin" that
must be ingested as food or supplement. It is necessary for the body to make
and repair DNA and RNA and to metabolize the amino acids and peptides which are
required in cell division. As a medication, folic acid is used to treat folic
acid deficiency and macrocytic- megaloblastic anemia (fewer but larger red
blood cells). Folate intake during pregnancy has been linked to a decreased
risk for neural tube defects (NTDs). These include spina bifida, encephalocele,
anencephaly and iniencephaly.
Folate supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to have a moderate effect on lowering
congenital heart defects.
Folic acid, normally found in legumes, citrus fruits, green vegetables and whole-wheat products, is necessary in increased amounts during pregnancy and even well balanced diets
are often not able to meet the demands of mother and baby.
This product is designed for people with folic acid deficiency, and all women of childbearing age. It is particularly recommended for those women attempting conception.
