Folic Acid

Folic Acid - is a water-soluble vitamin needed for cell replication and growth. Since Folic Acid forms the building blocks of DNA and RNA, rapidly generating tissues such as red blood cells and cells in a fetus have a high need for Folic Acid. Folic Acid acts with Vitamin B12 and Vitamin B6 to control homocysteine levels--an amino acid linked to heart disease and stroke. Folic acid can be found in beans, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, meat and is often fortified in grain products in the United States.
