Folic acid belongs to the group of B vitamins and is involved in many metabolic processes, in particular protein metabolism and the metabolism of DNA (genetic material). It is especially important during pregnancy and infancy, but is required for proper growth and maintenance of cells throughout life.
Folic acid 5 mg, 100 capsules
The coverage of the folic acid requirement is difficult because it is mainly in vegetables. Many do not eat enough vegetables. In addition, a significant proportion of folic acid is destroyed by heat and light when preparing the food.
Adequate folate in healthy diets may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect.
Research suggests that supplementation with folate may support cardiovascular and bone health by balancing homocysteine metabolism.
Cooking often reduces the natural folate content of food. However, supplementation with folic acid can provide a stable, bio-available form of folate.

- regular dialysis treatment
- drug treatment for cancers
- intake of certain drugs, e.g. the pill
