👉👉Vitamin B9 👉👉
Folate (#folic icid) is necessary for the production of red blood cells and for the synthesis of DNA (which controls heredity and is used to guide the cell in its daily activities). Folic acid also helps with tissue growth and cell function. In addition, it helps to increase appetite when needed and stimulates the formation of digestive acids.
Folic acid is essential for women who are :pregnant.
Vitamin B-9 includes both folate and folic acid and is important for several functions in the body.
According to the British Dietetic Association (BDA), folic acid is vital for making red blood cells, as well as:
the synthesis and repair of #DNA and RNA
aiding rapid cell division and growth
enhancing brain health, although the evidence is mixed and more research is needed
age-related hearing loss
It is particularly important for women who are pregnant to consume enough #folic acid. This helps prevent the fetus from developing major congenital deformities of the brain or spine, including neural tube defects, such as spina bifida and anencephaly.
Women planning to get pregnant should take folic acid supplements for a full year before conception to reduce the risk of these development.
Folic acid is often used to support a methotrexate prescription for rheumatoid arthritis
