Folic acid is a member of the B complex family of vitamins and is also known as folate. Folic acid functions as a coenzyme in DNA and RNA synthesis and is therefore important for healthy cell division and replication. It is required for energy production and the formation of red blood cells.
Folic acid is an important vitamin during pregnancy. It helps regulate embryonic and fetal nerve cell formation, which is vital for normal development. It can help prevent neural tube birth defects (such as spina bifida) if taken prior to and during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Along with vitamins B12 and C, it is involved in protein metabolism and has been used in the prevention and treatment of folic acid anemia. It also plays a role in a healthy circulatory system by decreasing levels of homocysteine, an amino acid by-product that can harm the cardiovascular system by damaging the lining of the blood vessel walls.
