Consider taking folic acid supplements? Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, also known as vitamin B9. Because your body can’t make folate, you need to get it from foods, as well as in the form of folic acid from dietary supplements.

How Folic Acid is used in the body?

Folate (Folic Acid) is found naturally in many foods, and is important for a range of functions in the body. It’s recommended that healthy adults get at least 400 mcg of folate per day to prevent a deficiency.

Your body uses folate to:

  • make healthy new red blood cells
  • form & repair DNA
  • supports healthy cell division
  • support brain & nervous system
  • keep your baby healthy in pregnancy

If you don’t have enough folate in your diet, you may end up with a folate deficiency. Signs of folate deficiency includes unexplained fatigue, anaemia and muscle weakness.
