A folic acid is a synthetic form of vitamin B9 and water-soluble vitamin. Folic acid plays a vital role in many body functions including cell repair, cell maintenance, DNA synthesis, amino acid metabolism. It helps promote liver health, enhance cognitive function, and eliminate oxidative stress.

WHAT CAUSES FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCY?
1. Not eating foods that have folic acid. These include green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, fortified cereals, meat.
2. Too much alcohol consumption.
3. Can’t absorb folic acid due to lower digestive tract disorder.
4. Taking certain medication
SYMPTOMS OF FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCY
Ulcers on tongueChanges in skin, hair, nail pigmentationReduces the ability of RBC to carry oxygenPale skinLoss of appetiteLack of energy/tiring easilyMental sluggishness
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FOLIC ACID & FOLATE?
Folic acid and folate are often being confused. While Folic acid is the man-made/synthetic form of B vitamin called folate, folate is the natural version found in foods.
FOLIC ACID HELPS PREVENT FATIGUE
Red blood cells carry oxygen to all parts of the body. Without enough oxygen, your body can’t work as it should. Good amount of oxygen supply keeps you energized.
BENEFITS HEART HEALTH
Cardiovascular disease is one of the most prominent global health challenges in the 21st century. Lower serum homocysteine levels are associated with a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. Folic acid is the most important dietary determinant of homocysteine. Homocysteine level is thought to be an indicator rather than a risk factor for heart disease.
WHAT IS HOMOCYSTEINE? HOW DOES IT AFFECT CARDIO HEALTH?
Homocysteine is a sulfhydryl-containing amino acid mainly formed from the essential amino acid methionine. Its plasma concentration depends on age, sex, lifestyle factors-(coffee consumption, smoking, physical activity, alcohol)-, genetic mutations leading to a severely diminished activity of the enzymes involved in homocysteine catabolism. Increased levels of homocysteine have been associated with oxidative stress, damage to the endothelium, increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
FOLIC ACID IS ASSOCIATED WITH COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE
Low folate blood levels are associated with poor cognitive performance, which could be improved by folic acid supplements. Folic acid affects the production of certain essential compounds and neurotransmitter substances that carry messages to different parts of the brain. Elevated homocysteine and chronic inflammation are linked to degenerative brain disorders. Folic acid improves cognitive function by lowering inflammation, reducing homocysteine, and improving gene expression.
PROMOTES SKIN & HAIR HEALTH
Deficiency of folic acid may represent a modifiable risk factor associated with skin and hair health. Elevated levels of homocysteine may damage the production of cells in your body by increasing the occurrence of oxidative stress. Folic acid helps to improve moisture retention and alleviate skin dryness. Folic acid helps to promote hair growth, add volume, reduce the rate of premature greying by increasing the amount of oxygen to hair follicles.
FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCY MAY CAUSE ANEMIA
Folic acid deficiency which means low levels of folic acid in the blood results in anemia. With low levels of folic acid, the red blood cells are larger than normal. This condition is called megaloblastic anemia. It results from impaired DNA synthesis within red blood cells. Folic acid works with vitamin B12 in making red blood cells.
FOLIC ACID BENEFIT FOR WOMEN
One of the most important ways to ensure healthy pregnancy is to get enough folic acid prior conception. Folate (vitamin B9) is essential in the earliest days of fetal growth for healthy development of the brain and spine. Ensuring sufficient levels of folate in women prior to conception can reduce neural tube defects (such as spina bifida and anencephaly).
Have a high need for folic acid.
