Folic Acid (800mcg)

Folic acid is a water-soluble B vitamin important for pregnant women to reduce the risk of a serious neural tube defect and to promote heart health by reducing blood homocysteine levels. Folic acid deficiency results in a form of anaemia that responds quickly to folic acid supplementation. Much like all other B vitamins, it plays an important role in converting carbohydrates into energy. Folic acid functions primarily as a methyl-group donor involved in many important body processes, including DNA synthesis and proper function of the nervous system. Therefore, rapidly growing tissues, such as those of a foetus, and rapidly regenerating cells, like red blood cells and immune cells, have a high need for folic acid. B complex vitamins are needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. All the B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning that the body does not store them. Folic acid is present in dark leafy green vegetables, asparagus, turnip, beets, mustard greens, Brussels sprouts, lima beans, soybeans, beef liver, brewer's yeast, root vegetables, whole grains, wheat germ, bulgur wheat, kidney beans, white beans, lima beans, mung beans, salmon, orange juice, avocado and milk.
