Folic acid is a member of the water-soluble B vitamin family, it is also known as folacin or folate. It was first discovered in the 1940’s when it was extracted from spinach. Folate gets its name from the Latin word folium (“leaf”). It should be replenished daily due to the fact that the body cannot store it for long periods of time. Folic acid deficiency is the most common vitamin deficiency in the world. Half of the folic acid in foods is depleted through cooking, processing and long-term storage, thus supplementation of this vital nutrient is highly recommended. Leafy vegetables such as spinach, turnip greens, lettuces, dried beans and peas, fortified cereal products, sunflower seeds and certain other fruits and vegetables are rich sources of folic acid.

What does Folic Acid do?
During pregnancy, a woman’s daily intake requirements for certain nutrients such as folic acid (folate) will increase. This vitamin is vital for proper fetal growth, development and healthy adult living. Mothers-to-be are advised to take folic acid for their own health as well as for the health of their babies. This vitamin makes up for many nutritional deficiencies in your diet during your pregnancy.
Folic Acid can reduce your risk of having a baby with a serious birth defect of the brain and spinal cord, called the “neural tube.” A baby with spina bifida, the most common neural tube defect, is born with a spine that is not closed. The exposed nerves are damaged, leaving the child with varying degrees of paralysis, incontinence, and sometimes mental retardation.
Low folic acid levels are linked to an increased risk of heart disease through an increase in homocysteine. Folic acid is necessary for the production of both DNA and RNA and is essential for proper cellular division and the transmission of the genetic code to all newly formed cells.
Folic acid is essential for the health of red blood cells and the production of proteins and various amino acids. It may treat cervical dysplasia and decrease the necessity of hysterectomies and it may be beneficial for people with major depression and/or schizophrenia. Folic acid has been shown to lower homocysteine levels, even when the levels are increased by lipid lowering medications and it helps support healthy immune function. It also may prevent the development and progression of atherosclerosis.
