Folic Acid 400 mcg, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 100% of the recommended dietary intake for FA in an easy to swallow tablet.
Folic acid is a water-soluble essential B vitamin found in many foods, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits and beans. Research has established that supplementation with FA before and during the first two months of pregnancy can prevent neural tube defects in developing fetuses in women.
The U.S. Public Health Service has recommended that women of childbearing age take a supplement containing 400 mcg of FA every day to reduce the risk of a pregnancy affected by neural tube defects. In addition to its prevention of serious birth defects, FA plays a key role in the metabolism of homocysteine.
FA 400 mcg may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with this essential vitamin.
