Folic Acid

Folic Acid

Folic acid, a water-soluble B vitamin, occurs naturally in food or can be added to the diet through supplementation. Folic acid is very important for all women who may become pregnant, especially during the periconceptional period (the period of time just before and just after a woman becomes pregnant). According to the U.S. Public Health Service, women who consume healthful diets that include 400 mcg of folic acid daily may reduce the risk of having a child with neural-tube birth defects.

Other benefits include that it:
  • May reduce the incidence of neural tube birth defects
  • Generates red blood cells
  • Builds muscle
  • Produces brain and nervous-system chemicals

In addition, folic acid is vital for men and women alike as it helps generate red blood cells, builds muscle and produces important brain and nervous-system chemicals.
