Folic Acid is an Essential B Vitamin

Folic acid, or vitamin B9, is the most common deficiency of all of the B vitamins. Because Folic acid is water soluble, your body cannot store it but instead excretes any excess from the body. That means you must maintain a sufficient daily intake.

Folic acid plays several important roles in the body.  Folic acid, along with vitamin B12, works to regulate the formation of red blood cells. This combination also helps iron function properly in the body. Folic acid also works with vitamin C and B12 to break-down protein. Folic acid is also important for its use in the formation of DNA and RNA.

Folic Acid is Vital for Pregnant Women and Fetal Development

Folic acid’s benefits in pregnancy are well documented. Supplementation before conception, and in the first few weeks of pregnancy can significantly lower the risk of several different birth defects, including neural tube defects (NTDs). The neural tube is the embryonic precursor to the brain and spinal column. NTDs include very serious defects like spinal bifida and anencephaly, birth without part of the brain.. One study showed that folic acid reduced the occurrence of NTDs by 50 to 70 percent when taken from one year to one month before conception until four months into the pregnancy. Further study is necessary to support these finding.

Folic Acid Helps Improve Circulatory Health

Folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 help break down homocysteine, an amino acid. Elevated levels of homocysteine have been associated as a risk factor for strokes, heart disease, and osteoporosis.

  • As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) tablet daily with meals, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
