Vitacost Folic Acid -- 800 mcg - 250 Tablets

Vegetarian supplement supplies 800 mcg of folic acid per single-tablet serving. What is folic acid? Folic acid—also known as folate or folacin—is a B vitamin found in green leafy vegetables and in lesser amounts in fruits sprouts brewer’s yeast liver and legumes. Often working in conjunction with vitamin B12 folic acid functions primarily as a methyl-group donor involved in many important body processes.*.  . Most importantly folic acid is responsible for the creation of DNA (the body’s genetic information) and building blocks of RNA (needed for protein synthesis in all cells). Rapidly growing tissues such as occurs during pregnancy or regeneration of tissues such as red blood cells and immune cells need folic acid to divide properly.*.  . Folic acid also plays a role in the formation of SAM (s-adenyl methionine) which regulates many functions including mood.*.  . How does folic acid support health? Helps promote normal DNA function and replication*. Supports homocysteine levels which is important for healthy heart function*. Supports healthy brain function and memory*. Maintains endothelial function*. Supports healthy and happy moods*. Women who consume healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce their risk of having a child birth defects of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250% of the DV (1000 mcg/1mg). Unless otherwise advised by your physician it’s generally advised to take vitamin B12 with folic acid because folic acid has the potential to hide a vitamin B12 deficiency.
