What is Folic Acid used for?
Folic acid is a form of vitamin B and is water-soluble. It has been found as an additive in many foods for the past 15 years as a result of FDA regulations being changed. Some of the many foods that now include folic acid as a result of this are pastries, cold cereals, breads, flour, and pasta. There are also many foods that are naturally rich in folic acid, including green vegetables (broccoli, lettuce, etc.), fruits (melons, lemons, bananas, etc.), meats (kidney, beef liver, etc.), juices (orange, tomato), beans, and yeast.
Folic acid is primarily used for treatment purposes to remedy a deficiency of folic acid. Any woman that is currently pregnant or intending to become pregnant will need sufficient levels of folic acid, or else they are at increased risk of a miscarriage as well as other birth defects.
Several vitamins are crucial during pregnancy, one of which is folic acid and The Department of Health advises all women who are trying to conceive to take a daily 400mcg folic acid supplement. This essential B vitamin is required for the formation of DNA and the development of the neural tube into the brain and spinal cord. Without sufficient levels of folic acid the foetus may not develop fully and birth defects such as spina bifida can occur. There is also increasing evidence to suggest that taking folic acid during pregnancy can improve the emotional health of children as they age.
Typically, folic acid will be taken along with other types of B vitamins.
How does Folic Acid work?
To properly and naturally develop the human body, it is necessary for it to always have sufficient levels of folic acid. It assists with DNA production and plays a role in various other functions within the human body.
