So, what is folacine?

Folacine is a naturally occurring nutrient that is essential for the proper functioning of the body. Also known as folate or folic acid, it plays a vital role in the production of new cells, especially during fetal development and infancy. Folacine is commonly found in green leafy vegetables, legumes, and fortified grains. It is a water-soluble vitamin, which means that excess amounts are excreted in the urine. A deficiency in folacine can lead to anemia, birth defects, and other serious health conditions. Supplementation of folacine is often recommended for pregnant women and those with certain medical conditions.
