Benefits of Taking Folic Acid

Folic acid is a part of the B-complex family of vitamins. These vitamins are critical for helping the body to break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars, which converts to energy. Since excess B vitamins are excreted from the body instead of being stored for later use, it is important that a sufficient daily intake of folic acid is necessary. In its natural form, folic acid can be found in foods like leafy greens, beans, peas, lentils, liver, beets, Brussels sprouts, poultry, tuna, mushrooms, oranges, bananas, strawberries, and cantaloupes. Those who have a folic acid deficiency can take supplements in addition to their daily food intake. Supplements should be taken with other vitamin B supplements, as well as vitamin C, to help with absorption and functioning. People at risk of heart disease and strokes can benefit by taking folic acid, which works together with complex B vitamins to break down homocysteine, or elevated blood levels of the amino acid recognized as a contributing risk factor for these diseases. Pregnant women should increase their intake of folic acid to benefit them and their baby. Folic acid is necessary for the proper growth and development of the baby. Daily intake can deter several types of birth defects, particularly neural tube defects.
