Folic Acid

 

Folic acid is a B vitamin. It helps the body make healthy new cells. Everyone needs folic acid. For women who may get pregnant, it is really important. When a woman has enough folic acid in her body before and during pregnancy, it can prevent major birth defects of her baby's brain or spine.

 

In surveys conducted, folic acid was shown to be one of the nutrients most often low in our diets. Folic acid has recently been shown to be important for the maintenance of a healthy heart. Pregnant women and women expecting to conceive are recommended to take 400mcg of this vitamin daily.

 

The best sources of folic acid are green leafy vegetables, liver and brewer’s yeast, although 65% of food folic acid can be lost during refining and processing. Enriched breads, cereals and other grain products also contain folic acid. If you don't get enough folic acid from the foods you eat, you can also take it as a dietary supplement.
