Helps to maintain good health and produce red blood cells. Folic acid is often found to be deficient in the North American diet, plus needs increase during pregnancy. Recent research has shown that Folic acid supplementation may prevent neural tube defects. NOW’s Folic Acid provides a high potency 800 mcg with added synergistic Vitamin B12 to help with absorption and overall effectiveness.

 

Folate and folic acid are forms of the water-soluble B9 vitamin. Folate deficiency will occur if the body does not get the adequate amount of folic acid from dietary intake. Folic acid has been shown to be effective in the treatment of megaloblastic and macrocytic anemia due to folate deficiency. Folic acid supplementation has been shown repeatedly to reduce homocysteine levels in blood in individuals with normal levels or in those with hyperhomocysteinemia. Folic acid supplements are suggested for use in women of childbearing age in order to prevent neural tube defects.
