So, what is ácido fòlico?

Ácido fólico, also known as vitamin B9 or folate, is a water-soluble B-vitamin that plays a crucial role in many bodily functions. It is essential for cell growth and division, and helps to produce DNA and RNA, the genetic material in our cells. Additionally, ácido fólico supports brain function and is especially important during fetal development, as it can help prevent birth defects in the brain and spine. This nutrient is found naturally in leafy green vegetables, beans, and citrus fruits, but is also commonly added to fortified foods and supplements. Adequate intake of ácido fólico is important for overall health and wellbeing.
